PS3 Media Server crashing after update


Established Member

First up the basics;
Dual Core Opteron 1.8GHz, 3GB RAM, XP Pro running 1.21.1
Streaming to PS3 Slim
100mbit ethernet through 1000mbit switch
MEncoder engine

I've been using version 1.10.51 for a couple of weeks without any major issues and decided to update to the latest and greatest version. When I turn on the PS3, it connects without any issue, however, when I then try to open a file, in this instance, an mkv file, the media server crashes instantly. This file worked fine on the old version, but since the update, I'm unable to play it.

I've checked I've the latest version of Java, even tried uninstalling and re-installing media server, but I get the same results.

Any idea what's causing it? I've search the forums, but not found anything, hence my post.

Any help welcome :)

That sounds a pretty specific issue to me and unless someone has experienced similar on here I would post something on the PS3MS forums themselves...
Oh no :rolleyes: I hate specific issues, I was hoping it was going to be a case of someone going, ah, you need to do this :facepalm:

I've posted on the PS3MS forums aswell, so fingers crossed.

But if anyone here has any ideas, please shout...
