Showtime PS3 Media Player v3.5.110 Changelog:

3.5.110-g843527f

ps3: Fix playback of 3.0 audio

Fixes #914

3.5.108-g6775194

ps3: Fix support for 4.0 audio channel layout

Fixes #886

3.5.105-ga4e10cc

ps3: Round timestamps to ms precision before feeding them to the SPU decoder

For some unholy reason the SPU decoder seems to hang when timestamps are not rounded to ms precision. I've no idea why.

Fixes #640
Fixes #662
Fixes #890

3.5.69-ga3159fe

PS3: Use jemalloc instead of newlib's malloc

Using jemalloc significantly reduces memory fragmentation and thus mitigates the out of memory conditions that happens now and then when using Showtime (in particular during movie playback)

It's also much more efficient than newlib's malloc thanks to per-thread caching of allocation and per-thread memory arenas

For more information about jemalloc, see http://http://www.canonware.com/jemalloc/

3.5.61-g6dfd6a5

Upgrade Showtime to use libav 0.8.1

This adds better support for multithreaded decoders and a lot of stability fixes.

For more details please see http://www.libav.org/releases/libav-0.8.release

3.5.55-g0d4a597

Upgrade Spotify integration to use libspotify 11

3.5.48-g43037d7

Add user setting for configuring the VDPAU deinterlacer (Linux only)

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.
