Anyone stream media from their iMac to their PS3?

I use that Java "PS3 Media Server" program, but it always lags like hell, even if I let it "transcode" all the way.

Am I using the wrong software? Is there some sort of port I should be opening or something cause I have no idea about networking.

oh this is streaming wirelessly btw

I've seen it work perfectly on other people's setups, granted it was with Windows.

How do you get it to work?

    What transcode settings are you using? What are the specs of your iMac?

    I use the same software on my 2007-era iMac and it works fine for me. I had a bit of trouble getting it to speak to my PS3 but that's because I had the option switched off on my wireless server.

    Check your server settings - hopefully there will be a sticker on your router that tells you how.

    I don't have any experience with that software, but I used MediaLink. It's $20, but it always worked flawlessly for me.

    I'm PS3-less, but Rivet works nicely for my 360.

    Open up PS3 Media Server.
    Go to the transcoding settings.

    I don't think transcoding is your problem.

    I think wireless is your problem.

    I have a way way way way way less powerful mac than you and I stream with the same program perfectly fine on a wired connection, up to and including HD content without a single hiccup.

    I stream full HD over my wireless G all the time to both a PS3 (also wireless) and Xbox using PS3 MS, as do most of my friends. I'm not ruling wireless out - he could have a shit network - but I wouldn't jump there yet.

    I dunno if the network is the issue. Playing games online is always perfect, as is downloading and stuff like that. I just reset my modem and router to be sure tho. Guess I'll let you know if that changes anything, but I doubt it will.
