Yes I want to know how to listen to music from my PC. What another software should I use?

Hello.
You have to use software that would works as a server on your PC.
It could be Windows Media Player - you just need to set it up. It could be also XBMC.
But experience shows that the best one for music sharing is Foobar2000 ( foobar2000 ). It is specially designed just for music.
After installation of Foobar2000 you have to install DLNA plugin - UPnP/DLNA Renderer, Server, Control Point 0.99.45
The advantage of Foobar2000 is its speed of work. It works almost instantly with no delays.

I have visited my friend. He has Sony Playstation 3. I have conntected to his home network, but I didn't see Sony Playstation in the list of renderers, though it is DLNA compatible. What could be the reason of this?

The reason of this is that Play Station 3 do not have DMR fuctionality, so it could not be controlled remotely.

DMS - server, can share media information, can be accessed by controller and player.
DMP - can browse servers, select media and play it.
DMC - can browse servers, select media and sent it to another devices and controll playback.
DMR - can receive media from controllers and play it, can be controlled.

DMPr - is digital media pritnter, that is why we are not going to add this class.
Talink about Uploader and Downloader - it might be interesting to add. We will take this into regard.
