On Boxing Day I finally gave into a long held desire; I purchased a big, flat-panel TV. After checking the thickness of my wallet (or rather, the lack thereof) and doing some online research, I settled upon the Sony Bravia KDL-46W5100 LCD TV.
I won’t review the TV in this post. If you’re interested, check out CNET’s review or the Future Shop’s customer reviews. Needless to say, I’m very happy with my KDL-46W5100, especially considering the low price I paid on Boxing Day.
The real purpose of this post is to show you how to stream videos to a KDL-46W5100.
If you already own a KDL-46W5100 or have spent some time researching the model, you’ll probably know that it can play free and pay-per-view streaming videos from the Internet via its Bravia Internet Video feature. But did you know that the KDL-46W5100 is also a DLNA media player, allowing you to play music, photos and videos served up by compatible media servers on your home network?
One such media server is PS3 Media Server or PS3MS, for short. In this article, I’ll show you how to play streaming videos on your KDL-46W5100 TV using PS3 Media Server.
