On first try, streaming was a bit too fidgety for for my wife's and my tastes, so we opted to do a network copy instead. Although we had to wait for the copy to finish before we could begin watching, we still did not have to dig out a thumb drive, but stutter free streaming would definitely be best. We were just too impatient and wanted to watch an episode of Stargate Atlantis over our fancy new PMS setup now and could not wait on me monkeying around with configurations until streaming was perfect.
In addition to streaming and copying movies to the PS3, other great features include:
- YouTube Viewing
- Podcast Streams
- Internet Radio
- Image Streaming
I thought that the PS3 may have used some proprietary locked-in service to do its streaming, but I was wrong. After doing some more research, I found out that the PS3 uses a technology standard called DLNA to do its streaming. I posted a question on a forum to find out if in fact PMS was my best option. And now I await answers.
