PS3 Media Server for Mac is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server that can enable users of all knowledge levels to easily share their audio/video collections with compatible home devices. With just a few minutes of configuration, you can make your home video collection ready to be streamed on-demand inside your home network with a simple press of a button.

Originally developed to serve as the official media server app for the media-friendly PlayStation 3 home console, the capabilities of this popular application were expanded to include any other compatible DLNA client device such as Mac, MacBook, smartphones, tablets, network-aware music players, and smart TVs.
Hailed as one of the earliest examples of media sharing in the home environment, this Sony’s application paved the way for the adoption of many standards that are used today such as DLNA, UPNP, and secure handshakes with edge network devices such as DMP (Digital Media Players) and  DMR (Digital Media Renderers).

Written in Java and available on several operating systems, PS3 Media Server for macOS today offers one of the most comprehensive media server capabilities you can found on the market for free.

The app supports almost every media format you can think of, and if your client device cannot natively reproduce the specific video or audio codecs found in your files, then PS3 Media Server can be configured to automatically transcode those files into client-ready formats. This is especially useful for weaker client devices that have modest onboard hardware. The transcoding service found in this media server app is based on FFmpeg, MEncoder, tsMuxeR, and AviSynth plugins, and thankfully users are not tasked to manually configure almost anything. Even the automatic transcoding of DVD and Blu-ray disc is natively supported! All that is needed is to activate the transcoding function and the app will do the rest.

The user interface of PS3 Media Server for Mac is simple, but it packs an incredible amount of customization options that have the potential to scare off novice users. Thankfully the interface is intuitive and simple to use, with a visual representation of the app media-broadcasting and network connection status in its first tab called “Status”. Other tabs (Traces, General Configuration, Navigation/Share Settings, and Transcoding Settings) are there for tight control over the entire media sharing service.

PS3 Media Server is 100% FREE and it does not feature any timed or locked services or licenses.
