I'm hitting brick walls it seems on finding any topics that pertain to streaming video and / or live display to a PlayStation 3. I am not sure if I'm just missing the correct terminology or if a solution simply doesn't exist.

My primary goal is to be able to stream videos to a PlayStation 3 similar to how Beamer works. A bonus would be to stream AirPlay. Are there any solutions for such scenarios?

Just came looking to see if I could use Airplay, as it would be very convenient to be able to stream from any of my devices.

However, I have been using medialink for years, using my mac mini as a media server. It had some troubles when it first came out, but in recent years I've found it extremely reliable, quality is excellent for all definitions.


Using airplay to stream music to your ps3 is not possible because airplay is a function that is only available on apple devices.

If you want to stream music to your os3, you will need a media server on your mac.

Most of the times I use vuse to stream my media to my ps3/4 or smart tv.

  • Interesting, but unfortunately Vuze has not worked for my situation. The primary issue is that the PS3 simply will not show up in Vuze and vice versa. Doesn't seem to be a firewall issue either, so I'm not sure what actually prevents it from being seen either way.

  • funny thing is is that I tried that one and it just simply hung. Never could get it to work. I've tried Plex as well with not much success. Really hoped to get something a little more along the lines of Beamer as noted initially.

    There are many non-Apple devices that can receive AirPlay signals.

  • just get an old apple tv 2, you won't look back. makes streaming music and video a breeze from your iOS devices and from your MacOS. it is the best device i've bought in the past 2-3 years (we had 2 iOS devices and 1 Macbook at home).
