Editors' Review

PS3 Media Server for Mac allows the streaming of video and other media files from your computer to the PS3, Xbox 360, or other devices over Wi-Fi. It hardly requires any configuration and is easy to use, allowing you to enjoy your videos without having to worry about the technicalities of the streaming process.

Pros

Lightweight: A small program, PS3 Media Server for Mac requires almost no initial setup -- all the necessary codecs are included in the installation. Once you've installed it and chosen which folders to share, you can forget about it.

Quick file selection: After tagging which folders are going to be shared on the Mac, the PS3 will see the shared folders and you can choose which videos to view.

Works with other devices: It can work with other rendering devices, including iPads, iPhones, and even Android devices, making it a great multipurpose app.

Cons

Installation issues: In our tests, it did not install properly the first time but stopped at step six of seven. On the second try, the installation went fine, finishing without a problem. However, there was no instruction to close the installer or to start the program.

Bottom Line

If you want to stream media from your computer to other devices without much hassle, PS3 Media Server for Mac can be a good solution, especially since it supports iOS as well as Android devices. It's small, practical, and, despite its installation quirks, remains easy to use.
