How to Stream Live From a PC to a PS3


The Sony PS3 comes equipped with a DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) feature. This feature allows you to use the PS3 as a client to stream music, video or image files in real time from a device with DLNA Media Server functionality. Your PC is such a device. Before you get started setting up the stream, make certain that both your PC and your PS3 are connected to the same router. You cannot stream content from your PC to a PS3 unless both devices are connected to the same network.

Things You'll Need

  • Windows Media Player 11
  • Navigate to “Settings,” “Network Settings,” then “Media Server Connection” in the PS3’s XrossMediaBar. Select “Enable.”

  • Launch Windows Media Player on your PC.

  • Click the “Library” tab. Select “Add to Library.” Click “Advanced Options.” Click “Add.” Browse to find any folder containing music, video or photo files that are not currently in your Windows Media Player library, but that you want to stream to your PS3. Click on the folder to select it. Click “OK.”

  • Click the “Library” tab in Windows Media Player. Select “Media Sharing.” Put a check mark in the box next to “Share my media to.” Windows Media Player will search for compatible devices connected to the same network. Click on the listing for your PS3 when it appears in the box. Click “Allow.” Click “OK.”

  • Navigate to the “Video,” “Music” or “Photo” icon in the PS3’s XrossMediaBar. Select the listing of your computer as a media server. If your computer is not listed as a media server, select “Search for Media Servers.”

  • Browse to find the video, music or photo file you want to stream from your PC to the PS3. Select the file to begin streaming it live from the PC to the PS3.
