Following up on all their previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Andreas Oman released Showtime PS3 Media Center v4.8 Stable Build for PlayStation 3 with some updates followed by Showtime Remote from Claes Hallstrom with the changes outlined below.

Download: showtime-4.8.pkg / showtime-gh-4.8.pkg / showtime-4.8.self / showtime-4.8.iso / showtime-4.8.3.pkg / showtime-gh-4.8.3.pkg / showtime-4.8.3.self / Showtime 04.09.021 [CEX].pkg (7.50 MB) / showtime_remote_v0.0.5.apk / Showtime Remote v0.0.5.zip / showtime_remote_v0.0.6.apk / Showtime Remote v0.0.6.zip / GIT / Showtime for multiMAN v4.09.021 (Mirror) by deank

To quote: Showtime 4.8 released

Finally time for a new release just before 2014 ends. In total 183 issues have been filed and fixed (showtimemediacenter.com/versions/60)

Major changes

  • Add support for streaming directly from bittorrent peer-to-peer network.
  • Improved HLS streamer, in particular better support for live streams and quicker adaption between bitrates.
  • New javascript engine for plugins (duktape.org) which is actively maintained and offers much better support than Spidermonkey. Spidermonkey is now deprecated and will be removed for 5.0 so plugin authors are urged to port their plugins.
  • Major rewrite of user interface rendering code. This is a preparation for Showtime 5.0 which will sport a new user interface.

Minor changes

  • It's now possible to turn off automatic browsing of archives (ZIP and RAR) as folders.
  • It's now possible to configure the amount of time Showtime skips when seeking backward and forwards. Settings available in settings -> video playback.
  • Since February 2014 (Showtime version 4.5.108), clearing metadata does not erase playcount, resume point, etc. Update the 'Clear metadata...' -warning text to reflect this.
  • Improve metadata lookup speed when using external sources such as themoviedb.org, etc.
  • Add support for video panning during playback.

Improve User Interface when streaming from Tvheadend:

  • Added show description and name of next show to TV playdeck.
  • If a channel has an icon, display that instead of Display.png in list view.
  • Added tv show description to iteminfo view.
  • Sort channels based on channelNumber set in Tvheadend's user interface.

PS3 specific

  • Fix interlaced h264 playback
  • Display HDD utilization in sysinfo overlay

Raspberry Pi specific

  • Fix broken AV sync when streaming from Tvheadend

Showtime Remote: Showtime Remote (via showtimemediacenter.com/boards/6/topics/8944)

Use your Android phone as a remote for Showtime (showtimemediacenter.com)

Features

  • Use the integrated searchbar to search in Showtime
  • Toggle buttons for play/pause and mute button
  • Long press on button, long press Menu shows ItemMenu
  • Use profiles if you are running Showtime on multiple devices

Next version

  • No Home or About screen
  • Simply switch between profiles in Navigation or Media

A short summary of the features:

  • Searchbar in the topbar at the navigation page, uses the searchbar in Showtime.
  • All icons used for the buttons are now bigger. Maybe even bigger is needed for 7"+ screens??
  • Play/Pause button toggles icon on press (same goes for mute button).
  • Long click on Menu will show you the ItemMenu.
  • Press and hold navigation buttons (up, down, left, right) for faster navigation.
  • Setting: Profiles, add a new profile with your current network settings. Useful if you are running Showtime on more than one device.
  • Setting: Choose which page you want to show at startup, i.e. (Home, Navigation, Media, Settings or About).
  • Setting: Choose to get a notification when there is a new release/commit to GitHub.
  • Custom launcher icon!!!! Please tell me what you think, this is the first icon I have ever made. Used svg, really liked it since I don't know how to draw but I know math and xml The source code for the launcher is under icons at github.

So please try it out, tell me what you think and report any problems you may find
If you have any ideas for future features please let me know.

Update: From Claes Hallstrom: v0.0.6 out now

This release introduces a ViewPager to switch between Navigation and Media instead of the previous NavigationDrawer. This version should also work with Android 3.0 and up, previously it only worked on 4.1 and up.

  • Profiles bugfix and lower minSdkVersion

From aldostools: Showtime Remote webGUI 1.1

[Register or Login to view code]

Download: Source Code / Showtime_Remote_webGUI_1.1.apk

With *a lot* of improvements (more commands, more keyboard commands, GUI animation, button effects, better browser support, etc.)

I have been messing with an online tool to create apps for different platforms from a webpage and created this "native" app for Android.

Also Claes Hallstrom has released his Showtime Remote 1.0 for Android on Google Play store (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.claha.showtimeremote) with Binaries and Source Code.

Finally, from deank comes Showtime for multiMAN v4.09.021 with the following notes:

Save the downloaded file as: /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/SHOWTIME.SELF

  • Added: XMB videos and last folder visible in Showtime
  • Added: Return to multiMAN when using the EXIT icon in to top right corner of main Showtime Interface

Since version 02.05.00 of multiMAN you can update your SHOWTIME within multiMAN, by going to XMMB Video tab -> Press [TRIANGLE] while "Start Showtime" is selected -> Update.

You can also update your showtime.self by deleting it from multiMAN's USRDIR folder and play a video - you'll be prompted to download the updated version. Be advised that in multiMAN versions 04.00.00+ SHOWTIME.SELF is located under USRDIR/sys folder.

NOTE FOR DEX PS3 USERS:

You have to install the official CEX/CFW standalone version of Showtime [DEX] BEFORE starting multiMAN DEX for the first time.
