How to Use VLC to Stream to PS3

VLC Media Player works with many different types of audio and video files. It can also stream your audio and video files over your home network. Streaming makes files accessible on other devices in your home, such as Sony's PlayStation 3 console. This feature does not come enabled right away, however — you have to turn it on in VLC's "Settings" menu.
