Scenario: Fedora 1x (in which PC you have unidentified media files you would like to see the PS3, whether divx, xvid, mpeg, mp3 or photos) on the same network to your PS3 sensational.
Problem: How do I get the PS3 to find these files?
Solution: I’m going to try my favorite blog (!) In search of the solution:-D
It ‘very simple, run as root or with sudo these commands:
$> yum install ushare ushare-Freeworld libdlna
then we edit the cfg file:
make the following changes:
write the name of the interface connected to the same network as the PS3
typically eth0 or wlan0:
USHARE_IFACE = eth0
So we modify the lines as follows:
USHARE_PORT = 49200 USHARE_DIR = /path/to/your/media/path/to/your/media/2, /path/to/your/media/3 USHARE_ENABLE_DLNA = YES
Remember that if you have an active firewall will ‘need to open TCP port 49200 and that it is necessary to separate folders to share with a comma.
Finally, modify the file:
$> cat/etc/init.d/ushare making this change: OPTIONS = "" becomes: OPTIONS = "d"
Here now, try running:
$> Start service ushare
time and let the system create the list of files to be shared.
If the PS3 now try to detect a new media server you will be stunned to find a new voice (ushare if you have not even changed the name in the file ushare.conf) within which you will see folders and subfolders and files that have the extension mpg.
But how will observe the most ‘cunning of my loyal readers, and all my files. Avi?
Here, in fact, we have not finished yet, but I was pleased to let you try to preview the thrill of “seeing” in your brand new PS3 media server;)
Did you record the PS3 on its website to enable divx codec?
What am I talking about?
Summary of previous games … better not, continue.
To be honest I quite troubled by this point because I could not show
PS3 directories and files other than mp4.
I tried changing permissions to shared directories, change the file that manages the mime types to change the extension of my ancestors in divx (I know that I could avoid it …)
to try every possible option in the configuration file ushare, all without any result.
What is most ‘depressing is that even the closest friend of difficult times, google, did not help anyone.
Amid these uncertainties, I also realized that I still had to turn my PS3 to display the DivX format, the procedure actually more ‘easier said than explain (and in fact does not explain it and invite you to seek a solution on google, just install divx player winzoz environment, create an account and register from the menu of a device which will complete the ‘must enter the code supplied by the same PS3, download the movie usb stick, plug it into the PS3 and display it, oops, the’ I explained)
thanks to user frustration and then a night owl and a flash of genius (or was it the need to sleep?) in the system I discovered that there was no single command ushare, but there ‘a ushare-fedora!
It ‘was then just edit the file /etc/init.d/ushare line
prog = ushare which must become prog = fedora-ushare
Finished. Everything works.
It is not true, as the last step necessary to ensure that the permissions of the shared folders in the file specified
are at least rx for the rest of the world (ok ok, calm, following command required),
suppose that the folder is:
then you will need to:
$> chmod o+rx/opt/share $> Chmod o+rx/opt/share/*-R
Enjoy now to explore your multimedia files from the PS3:)
P.S. happen to add new files to shared folders, in this case to make them immediately visible to the PS3 you will need to:
$>service restart ushare
In the event that the PS3 says it has lost the connection to the media server to run the board:
$>ushare stop service $>start service ushare
for printing several times until the PS3 again find our beautiful, bright and shiny media server!
