You have to have a media server "serving" the media to your network, so donwload something like tvesity or twonky (or you could use windows media player 11). From here, you tell the server to allow the sharing of media accross the network. From WMP you go to sharing, then allow the unknown device to see your media(this is actually your ps3). Then the server will appear on the xmb under the appropriate sections, ie video, pics and music.

 

If you need any more specific help just give a shout :)

Tversity and PS3MS dont need set up Videos.

1 You download the apps.

http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/downloads/detail?name=pms-setup-windows-1.25.1.exe&can=1&q=

2 You run the installers which auto config the apps

3 You run the new installed apps 

4 You see the icon on PS3. 

5 go back to step 3 on next power up or set the apps to auto start 

 

Yes they are realy that easy. 

 

You enjoy an error free set up for as long as you have the PS3.

 

If you have problems for some strange reason then you ask for help for that app.

Black screen on PC remote play showing up as windows GPU driver miss match, visit Intell, AMD, Nvidia to change your driver, downgrade of GPU driver may be required.

My ps3 picks up my Acer laptop wirelessly for media sharing but its running Vista,you can still do it with an Xp laptop but you have got to have wmp11 installed,as i remember you have to mess about with the network and file sharing options but it didn,t take me long,setup the laptop first and your ps3 will search for servers and hopefully pick your laptop(im not sure about wired connections).
