Mediatomb & PS3 give some folder issues
« on: September 10, 2012, 10:45:09 am »
Hey,

I can nicely play media from my LinuxMCE with a Playstation3.
The only thing that's a bit annoying is the level of folders.
Playstations limits the folder depth (i thought 7?).

So when i now browse, i've got:
Code: [Select]
LinuxMCE/home/public/data/videos/932G\ ST31000340AS\ \(sdb2\)\ on\ dc\ \[350\]/Series/SomeSerie
So this is /1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8

Media in level 7 (Series) are playable.
Media in level 8 (SomeSerie) isn't reachable anymore.

Is there (of course there is  ;) ) a way to limit this a bit?
That for example i've got a symbolic link that maps LinuxMCE/home/public/data/videos/932G\ ST31000340AS\ \(sdb2\)\ on\ dc\ \[350\]  to LinuxMCE/videos


What's the best way for this?

After picking myself up off the floor, I need to ask how you did this.  Was this a PS3 OS replacement to linux?  The last I read the power of the PS3 wasn't usable under anything other than their cell OS.  I have a few extra PS3's I don't use anymore and would wipe them in an instant for media server access in more rooms!!

I made a wiki!  Click here to check out my system.

No-no-no... ;)

I use the PS3 with the standard Sony OS on.
I simply use the videoplayer in the PS3 to reach a mediaserver (LinuxMCE / mediatomb) in my network.

I'm not a big fan to install an extra machine in my living room to view some movies. Specially when i can do it with an device that already can do it. And this device is quite silent, HDMI...


ps between us said, my next phase is installing a mediadirector (pc?) to see how that concept works...  :-X
