Set up your computer (Mac) Step 1: Download and install PS3 Media Server (free). This will allow your PS3 to "see" your Mac. Step 2: Connect to the same network as your PS3. Step 3: Go to Navigation/Share Settings and uncheck everything in the Thumbnails section (at the top). Then, at the bottom, add folders you want your PS3 to access. You can choose to add your entire hard drive, but it's helpful to add shortcuts to folders like Music, Videos, and Pictures. Step 4: Go to Transcoding Settings, and change the Maximum bandwidth to 14 or 15. If you have a very strong network connection, leave it at 0. If you don't have a 5.1 surround sound theater, go to the "Number of audio channels" settings and change it to "Stereo." Step 5: At the top, hit "Save" and "Restart HTTP Connection."
