PS3 Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP media server. Originally written to support the PlayStation 3, it has been expanded to support a range of other media renderers, including Xbox 360, various Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, and Sony televisions, as well as portable devices. Written in Java, it streams or transcodes[1] many different media formats, with minimum configuration. The FFmpeg and MPlayer packages support the PS3 Media Server. A currently maintained fork of PS3 Media Server exists as Universal Media Server.


  • December 2010 - Lifehacker readers voted PS3 Media Server "Best Personal Media Streaming Tool" in a reader survey.[2]
