On Windows 8, "Play To" functionality has been integrated into Windows Explorer;
However, as you can see, "Play To" is disabled; and I don't know why.
When I hover over the option, I get no information.
If I do things the other way round (set my PC as the streaming server through Windows Media Player, and then search for my PC from the PS3) this works fine; but as I've got many hundreds of videos on my PC, I want to be able to select a video from my laptop, and stream that to my PS3 instead.
I was under the impression that:
- "Play To" works for any DLNA enabled device
- A PS3 is a DLNA enabled device
Sharing is turned ON for this network on my Windows 8 PC, and I've ensured (and proved via the alternate approach above) that the two devices can communicate.
If it's any help, I can't see the PS3 listed as a network device, nor can I see it when I search for devices.
Any help would be appreciated!
