The PlayStation 3 has the ability to access streaming media from computer systems. If you are an Apple iTunes user, most likely you have movies, television shows and music in your iTunes library. After connecting your PS3 to iTunes, you will be able to access your iTunes library directly from your PS3.
- Open the Internet browser from the main menu of your PS3 screen and visit the Vuze.com website.
- Download and install the most recent version of Vuze to your PS3.
- Allow Vuze to open and run after the installation process is complete.
- Enter the required personal information.
- Wait while Vuze automatically imports your iTunes content. Vuze will import any files that you have in your iTunes library, including music, television shows and movies.
- Select “Devices” from the Vuze menu screen and then click “Turn On.”
- Scroll down and select “PS3.”
- View your iTunes library from your PS3.
- Scroll and select a file from your iTunes library and then select “Play” to access the selected file.
Whereas, it’s still in preliminary stages- there are many playback issues while opening and playing iTunes movies in PlayStation 3.
Q: Can’t Transfer itunes to PS3
I recently installed a 1TB hard drive into my PS3 and wanted to put all my songs from my itunes library onto it. I transferred most of them but some of them werent able to be copied. Why is this happening?
