Re: How to Stream PC videos to HDTV with PS3

I guess you will require a PC with Windows OS and Media Center application. Also a Media Center Extender [hardware] is required to do so and as you have a PS3 you have a Media Center Extender. PS3 Acts as a media Center Extender. Well if your computer and PS3 are in network, you must be able to see the video on the TV when accessing from the PS3. Can you browse and listen to music?

Re: How to Stream PC videos to HDTV with PS3

I just figured it out myself. I did not select the video folder in the library from Windows Media Player. I first tried putting one video in the 'My Videos' folder in 'My Documents' and i could see that video on PS3. So i tried configuring the Windows Media Player. Thanks though!
