i've some issues running ps3 media server on my MacBook Pro 13" on OS 10.8.3.

When I want to play a MKV on my xbox throught PS3 MS, no matter which movie I try, it plays only for 10s then the java player crashes.

By searching, I learned that it came from a lack of Java Heap size so i tried to increase it but i didn't succeed.

Where can I learn (or can you provide details) on how to increase the heap size for a specific app running under Java 7 man 17?
