The scenario is simple - you have all your movies and videos sitting on that humongous 1TB hard drive installed on the PC. Or the media is scattered across various hard drives that may also be connected to the same PC, via USB. Now, how do you watch those movies on the TV?
There is the conventional method of copying these video files to a USB drive, plugging it directly to the TV or an HD Media Player and then watching the content. But, that tends to get rather messy after a while.
The better method is to set up your home for wireless (or wired) streaming, to get the content straight to the playback device, or an intermediary device.
What we are talking about here is a single software that installed on the source PC that’ll take care of getting the library out to the playback device, seamlessly, over the home network. Contrary to what the name suggests, the PS3 Media Server software works with a lot more devices than just the PS3.
This method can help the popular gaming consoles like the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox become the perfect media center devices. It also works for HD Media Players, which can do a lot more than just be a hub to plug the hard drive into.
