    I'm absolutely new to Mac and PS3 :)
    So, I finally got my Windows machine connected to the PS3
    Can anyone tell me what program will connect to the PS3 so I can stream media?

    Thanks.
    Excited to play around with my first Mac

    The way I connected my PowerBook to my PS3 was to use MediaTomb. It can be installed easily using MacPorts. Just go to http://www.macports.org, follow the instruction for installing Macports, install MediaTomb using Macports, and start using MediaTomb (info at http://www.mediatomb.cc).

    I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but if you want to stream media from your Mac to your PS3, this is the best program hands down: http://www.nullriver.com/products/medialink

    streaming to ps3

    I've been using the medialink software from nullriver for a couple of months and it is superb. worked first time, no problems since and supports all the file formats that I need.

    It's cheap as chips too.

    I just cannot get Medialink to work. My PS3 will not pick up the servers.
