Vuze Adds PS3 Support |


Vuze announced PS3 support today. Basically, this is a P2P video sharing YouTube-like service with a focus on high-definition video. You install their free client software on a PC or Mac, download videos to that system, and the client software hosts those videos over your local network using PS3-recognizable network sharing.

If you don’t mind using a PC as a network bridge like this, there are several other options: PlayOn is a popular one that provides a PS3-friendly network access to local video content as well as free video content from Hulu, CBS, YouTube, CNN, ESPN, and if you have a Netflix subscription, you can use PlayOn as a network bridge to the Netflix movie download catalog.

YouTube + Hulu Direct Access

This isn’t a new feature, but it’s worth mentioning that you can access YouTube and Hulu video content directly from the PS3 web browser. YouTube has an experimental web interface optimized for the PS3. Hopefully we will see native PS3 clients to these types of video services in the future.

    I don’t quite understand. Vuze has worked as a media server for me for quite a while and always worked on a PS3. So, if i understand it correctly, now Vuze transcodes video streams real-time? Now i can watch H264 MKV’s on my PS3?

    I had Vuse working on my PS3, streaming videos perfectly, now since I updated Vuze, I don’t see it on my PS3 and its black on my Vuze. On the PS3 I searched for media and it doesn’t find it.

    I have exactly the same problem as Gary, will try a system restore, if that doesnt work what should we do?!?!?
