PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 announced with bandwidth limiter
The developers of the open source PS3 Media Server have released version 1.50.0 of their application. The Java-based PS3 Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP media server which was originally developed to stream or transcode multiple media file formats to the PS3, but now supports other media players such as smartphones, some televisions, Microsoft's XBOX 360, various music players and other devices capable of playing back DLNA streamed content. It runs on all major operating systems, with versions available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
In version 1.50.0, support for Samsung AllShare has been added, a new natural sort ordering for alphanumeric programme names is available, MPlayer and MEncoder for Windows and Mac OS X have been updated to fix playback issues, and a bandwidth limiter integrated to "solve a lot of 'stuttering playback' reports". German, Bulgarian and Dutch translations have also been updated and there have been a number of enhancements to networking support.
The new version includes a number of backwards incompatible API changes which plug-in developers should be aware of. A detailed list of other changes is provided in the release announcement. PS3 Media player 1.50.0 is available to download from Google Code and is licensed under GPLv2.
