My System Specs

Default Stream from my PC to my PS3

I know and I was doing the windows way to sream on the network but I am little bored to do the crap with workgroup and blablabla. Is there any software free if possible that can do it all for me. Only have to setup 1 time and then drag and drop what I want or that can share an entire folder from multiple hard drive to my PS3. Nero share is out of the choice. Thx guys.

I used Win MEdia 11 fro a while and it worked ok. Twonky seems to be pretty good too. There's a free trial but it's $40 after 30 days IIRC. TVersity is free but more complicated to setup than any of the other choices.

Edit

I don't know what you mean by setting up workgroups etc... WinMedia 11 was like a couple clicks in the app itself to find the folders and share them. Twonky was even less hassle.

With windows media player 12 I have been abble only to share the Homegroup folder in windows 7 and the PS3 was not able to see in the sub-folder so if I put all my movie I have to set them 1 at a time manually to be sure there is only the video in the sharing folder and nothing else. I will give a try a twonky let's see how it does.

Edit. I mean homegroups not workgroups

I use Tversity for streaming to my Xbox 360 and all other computers in my house. There is PS3 support as well.

I enjoyed and still use twonky as its fairly easy to use and will allow you to allow or block specific ip address (or mac address) if you're on a big network

+1 for PS3 Media Server. Works great for me! My only complaint is that I sometimes have trouble fast-forwarding MKV files, but that may be due to my processor (e5200 @ 3.1ghz). I have recently made the switch to a Q9550 (currently trying to stabilize it around 3.8ghz), so that might be fine too....I'll give it a try and note how it works out.
