Did you make this change as indicated in the documentation?

7.1.18. Sony

Playstation 3

Firmware 1.80 introduces UPnP/DLNA support, add the following to the <server> section of your configuration file to enable MediaTomb PS3 compatibility:

<protocolInfo extend="yes"/>

Hi macemoneta,

Thanks for the reply, yes i have set that to yes in the /etc/mediatomb/config.xml

Have you opened the appropriate ports in your firewall?

Allow Outbound:
TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479.

Port Forward inbound
TCP: 9293 and UDP: 3658

i don't have a firewall? or are you refering to fedora 15 firewall or my router?

macemoneta 08-30-2011 02:30 PM

Most major Linux distributions, Fedora included, enable the firewall by default. You will need to port forward on your router if you need access from the outside (for example if the PS3 is in the DMZ).

ah ha, i have turned off the fedora firewall and now the ps3 can see mediatomb.

Now its just a matter of adding my media.

can this be done as simple as

mediatomb -a /my/path/to/media ??????

macemoneta 08-30-2011 03:19 PM

Yes, you can add the path via command line, or if the web server is enabled, you can connect to http://localhost:49200/, and perform the addition by clicking on the '+' next to a directory in the filesystem, or the circled '+' to add the directory as an autoscan directory (self updating on file creation).

OK, so how do i enable mp4 support? comes up as unsupported data

macemoneta 08-31-2011 01:55 PM

You have to transcode content that is not in a format that the PS3 wants.
