Introducing Playstation 3 support - MediaTomb 0.9.1 is released 2007-05-28

Actually this release was not planned, it just happened :)

After Sony released the Playstation 3 firmware with UPnP functionality our forums got really crowded – lots of people wanted to use it with an opensource UPnP server, but none worked. What followed was a perfect example on the advantages of opensource development: knowing that we do not have a PS3, users offered their help in debugging and testing, and together we were able to quickly find a solution to the compatibility problems.

So a big THANKS goes out to all of you, in return you get a new release that now also supports streaming of MP3 and MPEG4 files to your PS3.

Note – in order to enable PS3 support add the following to the <server> section in your configuration file:

<protocolInfo extend="yes"/>

We were not sure if PS3 settings would disturb other renderers, so we did not enable this option by default.

And everyone else… sorry, allthough the new playlist parsing feature is almost finished, it was not yet ready to be released. So besides PS3 support there’s nothing new, except a couple of bugfixes.

Nevertheless, stay tuned, the next release may be sooner as you think :>
