Watch films on your PS3 via PC with PS3 Media Server


Soo, I wanted to see if it was possible to play big video files (over 4 GB in size) on the Playstation 3.

This, however, didn't really work out. The PS3 won't recognise any drive that's connected to it, if it is formatted with NTFS. It will recognise FAT32 though.

Naturally, this sucks though.
For those who don't know, the maximum size of a file on a FAT32 drive can only be 4 GB.
That file size limit is way too small for these days, where we have 1080p in most devices.

To watch that file, I would have to split the file into chunks that are under 4 GB in size. That's only time consuming, diminishes quality and annoying.
Thankfully, there is a way to watch and view your pictures and movies on your Playstation 3 with the help of a computer and some software!
Works with Linux/Mac OS and Windows!
