January 23, 2012 // 7:45 pm - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Redsquirrel87 has updated the unofficial Showtime PS3 Media Player Repack to version v3.3.409 with the changes detailed below.

Download: PS3 Showtime Media Player Repack v3.3.409

PS3 Showtime Media Player Repack v3.3.409 Changelog:

  • Merge pull request #62 from wader/osx_fixes
  • osx: spotlight: Assign ctype properly
  • Fix uninitialized warning
  • osx: spotify: Fix logic and cleanup configure arg
  • Update Bulgarian translation
  • Various fixes for libav 0.8
  • Update German translation
  • Update Italian translation

Andreas Oman has done some important announcements:

  • An automatic build system is nearing completion
  • He will be leaving on a six week vacation and during that period he will not do any PS3 related development

This essentially will have two important consequences on these unofficial builds:

1. Obviously, if there will be no update to Showtime's source code then there will be no need to compile new builds, so in the next 6 weeks you may not find new builds here.

2. When the automatic build system will be completed these builds will have no sense as it will allow to upgrade Showtime directly from your PS3. For this reason, when the automatic build system will be complete, I'll stop to release these Unofficial Builds here because you'll can download them directly from the official site or indeed update Showtime directly from your PS3.

Showtime PS3 Media Player Repack v3.3.409 Update is Released

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.
