MP4 fixes/features? Sounds like a epic update. Now if only I had access to my ps3...
It runs nicely now, haven't encountered memory issues atm. It's great but still there are some things needs to be work on.
But I hate the random crashing when accessing SMB shares.
ok so pretty sweet the new version adds the ability to play the next movie, however that works off an external hd (probably the internal i don't have anything on it to check) but not off a server through windows media connect.
does anyone know where to request features for this?
Windows Media Connect (DLNA server that is) maybe is a not wise thing to have a continuous playback as it has some instabilities across DLNA enabled device.
But you can just use continuous playback through SAMBA share. It's much more better than WMC since it doesn't require too much resources to begin with (it just transmits the information in plain data, not in re-encoded data like most DLNA do).
not sure how to use a samba share with showtime
I think the developer has a site I believe. Although I'm not sure where or what it is
Here's a site: lonelycoder.com/redmine/
You can go here to submit bugs/request features: lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/showtime/issues/new
I submitted a bug about a week ago and he already fixed it by this latest release, just make sure to give a detailed report.
thanks to everyone for all the help between the suggestion of using samba and the link that got me to the forums for showtime as well as google and a couple of hiccups and i now have a samba share working and that allows the continuous playing of files which is what i wanted for my son
it also helps as now i can play mkvs from my server instead of having to put them on my external drive
so thanks again niwakun, NTA and Virii2012

More PlayStation 3 News...
So I got a question... why are there 2 different downloads for this in .pkg form, as far as I can tell the only difference is one has a "gh" in the download, the other doesnt? I may be missing something... any thoughts?
