With MediaLink's flawless iTunes integration, getting to your songs on your PlayStation 3 is just as easy as it is on your Mac. Find any song, album or artist with ease in the Mac-like navigation system provided by MediaLink. MediaLink also conveniently shares your Playlists, Podcasts and Videos to your PlayStation 3.

Make your PlayStation 3 your home media center. MediaLink can stream high definition video content to your living room with ease!

Continue movies from where you left off or fast forward and rewind, view subtitles: all effortlessly using your PlayStation 3 and MediaLink.

MediaLink is now able to transcode most unsupported video and image formats into a PS3-compatible format on the fly. This means you no longer need to convert videos before being able to play them on your PlayStation 3. You can also now optionally transcode all videos and images, which will enable down-scaling videos and images for slower network connections.

Don't use iTunes or iPhoto? Do you have media stored outside your libraries? No problem! MediaLink has full folder organization support. MediaLink can easily locate music, photos and videos in any folder on your Mac and even preview it and collect ID3 information from your songs. Just select the folders you want MediaLink to share and you will instantly be able to access them from your PlayStation 3.

Using MediaLink, you can also easily copy media from your Mac to your PS3's internal hard drive.

If you have a PSP, you can enjoy all your media from anywhere in the world using remote play via the Internet with your PlayStation 3 and MediaLink.

Note: If you've bought the App Store version, do not download the Preference Pane version available on our web site as they will conflict. If you have the Preference Pane version installed, please uninstall it and use the App Store version found in "Applications" on your Mac.

Version 2.13
Review by smith407

Seems very nice! - After reading the reviews I was kinda wondering if there would be issues but I gave it a try. Downloaded and installed no problem for me! I opened the program and hit start, ran in the other room and turned on the PS3 and there was everything I was expecting itunes, iphoto and all my movies without really having to touch anything. It runs a lot faster than I was expecting too!! It took a minute to find my movies but all is good. Also be sure they are in the correct video format, which is well explained in the support files and fairly easy to convert if needed. Good product and I'm excited use it!!

Review by TurtleFuzz

Misleading - I bought this believing that it would allow me to stream movies purchased from the iTunes store. However, this is not the case. I just wasted $20 on this software that I will probably never use. Nullriver should include this information somewhere in the description. Very misleading.

Review by Sonic2552

Got it to work, but it was a process - Ok, so I got sick of the app store constantly showing the little red bubble with the "1" in it, so I figured I would give the update one more try. I closed all running applications. Made sure that nothing was connected to my network other than my Mac. Then downloaded the update. After the updae was done I restated the machine. The first and only application I launched was Medialink. I removed all the folders from the shared folders menu and readded them. After re-adding the folders I once again restarted the machine. Again, the first application I launched was medialink. After it was up and running I closed the settings window, allowing the app to run in the background. I then went and checked for functionality (i.e. finds the server, folders show content, content plays) on all my media client devices, including my PS3. No problems at all on any device using this porocess. I do not believe my Mac was the issue at heart given the problems I expierenced the first time I updated. Its brand new, running OS 10.8.4 with plenty of processor speed and ram. My in home network is solid and secure, never had an issue with it. I stream netflix on multiple devices at once without issue. Oh yeah... I should say, that when medialink is working properly, it is by far the best media server for Mac OS. Turst me, ive tried (and paid) just about all of them. I should also note that I did all of the above mentioned things all on my own. Nullriver's customer support is totally and completely NON-existiant. Dont even try to contact them, its just going to make you mad when they don't reply.

Version 2.67
Review by Jedi Mastah

It works, but not really - For some reason this version of the software does not install in your System Preferences but it's a stand-alone app…oh well. Thing is, everytime I turn my TV on and use the DLNA the software shows the folders loaded but nothing in it. I have to delete them and add them back every time, only then the files will show. I have a different version on my Macbook (The one installed in the System Preference) and have no problem with it whatsoever…go figure...
