Http error (500) has occured - PS3 stream

    Question

  • Hi - my PS3 seems to be chucking a up weird error when attempting to stream content via wired ethernet from my WHS. Everything was working fine until for no reason, whenever I try and fastforward a video faster than 1.5x playback crashes with a media error and the HTTP Error (500) message.

    Now I work at Sony, and have been in touch with some senior engineers at SCEE who say that the error isn't a Playstation error, and having tried to stream the identical file from my Vista Biz PC with no problem, I'm tending to agree with them. Thus the figure of blame looks to be pointing at WHS, but having searched the web,  I haven't heard this error cropping up with anyone else.

    Anyone have the faintest idea what might be causing this??

    Thanks in advance..

  • Just to close off this thread, the latest PS3 firmware 2.41 seems to have fixed this bug, so fingers crossed it stays that way.

  • The engineer's are probably right, probably server error. Please have a look at error log in C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\HTTPERR.

  • Hmm. No http error 500 in this log. Also the most recent error in this log is more then two weeks old. Obviously the error's aren't logged or not logged in this file. I don't have the equipment to reproduce the error, however:

     

    a quick websearch get's me to Media server error. An HTTP error (500) has occurred - PLAYSTATION .... When you look at the 2nd page of this thread you will find that one possible cause is corrupted media. Even if this isn't your problem you may find some useful hints in that thread. Else just Google "HTTP Error (500) streaming media fastforward PS3" and find lot's of other useful links.

     

    Some of these threads will also tell you that in spite of senior  engineers opinion it's PS3 (firmware) issue:

    Media Server Error (500) since 2.30 update when fast forwarding ... or HTTP 500 Error when fast forwarding - AVForums

  • Thanks for the links - looks like I'm not alone and opinion seems to be split as to whats causing the bug. I'm starting to think it is the PS3 or at least something to do in the whay its communicating with WMP since firmware 2.30

    thanks

    It's indeed not very clear, however doesn't seem to be WHS specific problem. Good luck in solving it.

    I'm pretty sure I can clear this up.  I have been streaming video from my PC to the PS3 on an almost daily basis for at least 3 months now.  For some reason, only 2 nights ago, I decided to update the firmware on my PS3.  SINCE that update, I have been getting these same 500 errors when trying to fast forward more than 1.5 speed.  I had forgotten that I updated the firmware, so I never put 2 and 2 together.  I found this thread as the error had happened again earlier today and I only now had a chance to search for a solution.  So, this thread helped me put the puzzle together, and in turn I was able to share my information with this thread.

  • Yep I think we've already ascertained its the firmware update thats the root cause, but whats the solution?
    Wednesday, 11 June 2008 6:30 AM
  • Just to close off this thread, the latest PS3 firmware 2.41 seems to have fixed this bug, so fingers crossed it stays that way.

  • Don´t know the cause, but to solve the same problem, just went to iTunes preferences/ Advanced, and turned streaming buffer size to "Large". Hope that helps.
