Note 2: If you don't like projects that are in development (with many possible bugs) please don't use this.
Note 3: If the plugin crashes in any time is not due to it but yes due either to Showtime itself (a problem of rendering) or a lack of memory (remember ps3 has low memory).
Note 4: When reporting errors, please report the ones where you get an error inside the plugin (not in a video) or anything works strangely in list view of items.

Yes, I was. I wonder if the Ps3 will ever have naything as good as XBMC was on the original xbox. Those were the days.

Yes, but I don't see how that helps native PS3 playback. I assume you're talking about transcoding.

This is a welcome addition to the homebrew library. Would it be possible to add support for a codecs folder (ala XBMC)? Anyway, thanks andoma!

low res mkv files will work but more optimisation is needed before it's a real alternative to the inbuilt video player. great work in progress though.
