    We now going to do next on your PS3 in a moment but first you must have an application name mac. Max do not have onboard support with some of the features. So you need to download an application called PS3 media server. There are large of programs like it but this is the only free program I found which is the same thing as the paid one.

After Installing PS3 media server

Once it is installed we need to customize some of the settings. First go to the settings and uncheck everything from the thumbnail section and the advantage of doing this is to fasten up the loading time. This program also consists of some safe setting and by doing this setting it keeps PS3 safe. By going on the bottom section of the page of the PS3 you can see an option called create tabular column and using this you can add your entire project and it also has the shortcut to the videos, music and photos. Now go to the transcoding setting and change maximum bandwidth to 14 or 15 and by setting the maximum band width to 0 it means that an unlimited bit rate and 15 means that it has lot of playback and a lower bit rate does a lower quality in your playback. Also, if you don't have 5.1 surround sound on your TV then go up to the option change number of audio channel and change it to 2 channel studio and the next step is that make sure that you are connected by Wifi on Mac and save the settings from navigation share settings. Then click on restart http server. And now we setup on the back and the media is ready to be stream to your PS3. Now go the PS3 menu and have the photos videos or music. If your computer should not show any of the servers then hit for option search for media servers and if it still not showing up the servers then do the procedure 2 or 3 times and identify that the computer and the PS3 are in same network but it shows up that you have finished the procedure. If you want to play music there are certain option for music such as shuffle, repeating and more you have a triangle button and it enables to play on the background. And you can also copy your music photos videos on your PS3 smart drive by pressing the triangle button when you are viewing a file and Just how much space you have got on your drive. If you are still getting bored by buffering videos, music or any other thing just change the bitrate to 15 as changed earlier and by doing this it will low down the quality. The Mac application can be downloaded from the below link and the screen shot OS given below. As always if you have any questions relating this article you can asked me in the response box.
