[quote=“super-saint”]I cant get the PS3 to stream MP3’s without at least a 20 second buffer at the beginning of each track & between each track of album. Seen this issuer a loot by trawling the internet BUT no answer
I am connected wired via homeplugs & have installed TVersity as per 1st page ( i get exact same issue wirelessly)
I have opened up DMZ in router to allow PS3 & PC to talk BUT no difference.
TO RUB SALT INTO THE WOUNDS MY XBOX360 WORKS FINE…NO GAPS/NO BUFFEREING - FAULTLESS
I had a similar issue when I first setup Tversity. If you have followed my guide, then you have installed FFDShow Audio, so I’m assuming you DO have this program right now…correct me if I’m wrong.
FFDShow will be setup by default to decode MP3’s. You can, if you’d like assign another codec to decode them (I suggest LAME if any other codec is used) but FFDShow does a pretty decent job.
HOWEVER, PS3 natively supports MP3 decoding, so unless you’ve told Tversity to Always Transcode for your music folder it will only stream the MP3 directly, usually meaning more buffer time for the PS3. Try setting your music folder, in Tv, to Always for the transcode option.
You may want to double-check that FFDshow is set to decode MP3’s and that you don’t have any sound-altering things setup in FFDShow. If you used the version listed in the guide, or the most recent version from Free-Codecs.com, then you don’t need to change anything in FFDShow.
