Default TVersity gets patch for PS3

As you may know Sony has released yesterday a new firmware update for the Playstation 3 which added support for UPnP AV / DLNA.

We are glad to announce that we already have a patch that takes advantage of this new functionality allowing playback of almost any audio and video files on the PS3, including Divx/Xvid and many other audio and video formats.

This patch also allows playback of some Internet radio/TV channels, albeit it is still somewhat limited in this area. A revised patch that can play all the channels TVersity can typically handle with other devices is coming soon.

You can download the patch at:

To apply it please follow the steps below:

Make sure you have TVersity version installed, otherwise install it. Please note that this patch cannot be applied on top of older versions and is designed for ONLY.
Stop media sharing in TVersity (via the advanced menu or the tray icon)
Unzip the patch file and copy its content over to the TVersity installation folder (by default it is \Program Files\TVersity\Media Server)
Start sharing and try accessing your audio, video and photos from the PS3

Gonna try after dinner

It works pretty good, and its free. It can convert most other format on the fly, but it takes a while if your pc is slow.

Another update.

Version (May 30, 2007)
Support the Sony PS3 firmware 1.8
From firmware 1.8 there is no need to use the Adobe Flash interface for the PS3 (it is still the only way to stream media to the Nintendo Wii). You can now access your entire audio, photo and video collection from the PS3 dashboard, including Internet Radio/TV, RSS feeds and more. The changes from the previously released patch are:

Internet radio now works on the PS3. First playback attempt is likely to fail with an “Access to the media server has been denied” message (or “unsupported data” message), this is because the PS3 does not wait long enough for the data to be fetched over the Internet. After this failure, wait a few seconds and try playing this same station again. Assuming a connection to that station was possible, there won’t be an error message, however the actual playback may take up to two minutes and more to start since the PS3 requires about 1 MB of data before it initiates playback.
Internet video and transcoded content starts playing faster than it used to (saving about 5 seconds).
Library refresh is now reflected on the PS3 and on any other device that checks the media server for updates (leaving a folder that has updates and then going back to it is required in order to see the changes).
When moving from one Internet video to another, previously the older video was not always terminated, this is now fixed.
Issues with green bars or distorted colors when playing via PS3 were resolved.
The TVersity icon is now shown by the Ps3.
