Limitations of PS3 media serving: If host comp isn't running a quad core good luck streaming anything bigger than 720p.

I'm using this:

^will stream the biggest BD files I have in .mkv @ 15gb each with surround audio.

MKV is the format you wanna use.

Streaming server has nothing to do with how many cores a CPU has. Its the PC the plays the files needs to have a decent hardware.

A decent dual core and a cheap nvidia card will play any movie at 1080p. My 3 year old laptop will play any 1080p movie on a external 24" screen with no issues, while im converting another avi file with a 3rd party hardware.
