Showtime Media Player for PS3 Updated to v3, Features Zoom

Showtime Media Player for PS3 Updated to v3, Features Zoom 1400°
192w ago - PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has updated the Showtime Media Player for PS3 to version 3 today which features zoom functionality.

Download: Showtime Media Player for PS3 (SELF) / Showtime Media Player for PS3 (PKG) / Showtime Translations / GIT

To quote: So I've finally gotten around to releasing 3.0. It's pretty much the same as in 2.99.534 except that you can now arbitrarily zoom the video via a setting in the popup menu.

I'm leaving on a vacation tomorrow and wont bring the PS3 with me so don't expect any (tested) PS3 features the next weeks. I will hopefully find time to do a bunch of other non-platform depended features though.

Once I get back I hope to address all aspects of audio on the PS3, in particular:

  • AV sync problems
  • Digital output
  • Volume control

Have a nice summer!

192w ago - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has updated the Showtime Media Player for PS3 to version 2.99-534.

Download: Showtime Media Player v2.99-534 for PS3 (SELF) / Showtime Media Player v2.99-534 for PS3 (PKG) / GIT

To quote: This is the last release (by me) before setting the 3.0 stamp. Hopefully there are no serious issues lurking and if so I hope to be able to release 3.0 in a couple of days.

I know there is still alot of bugs (although not as many as I would expect, to be honest) to be squashed and a lot more features to be implemented.

On top of this I have a lot more ideas in my head for stuff I would like to add. But as always, time is a limiting factor.

A list of changes since 2.99.401 release:

  • Popup menu redesigned a bit
  • Add support for Windows 1251 codepage
  • upnp: Make sure that we really find subtitles when doing a blind probe. This bug has caused problems for some people making some video not start at all.
  • Make it possible to enter credentials in the auth popup...

Showtime Media Player PS3 Homebrew Port Now Supports 1080p

Showtime Media Player PS3 Homebrew Port Now Supports 1080p 1400°
204w ago - Today Andreas Oman has updated his Showtime Media Player HTPC port for the PS3. The new release now includes 1080p playback at a constant speed and unconfirmed DVD playback.

Download: Showtime PS3 Media Player 1080p PKG / Showtime PS3 Media Player 1080p SELF

To quote: I've hooked up Showtime to the video decoder libraries already present on the PS3. This will accelerate h264 (Up to level 4.2) and MPEG2 video decoding so it can play up to 1080p content.

If you want to make sure that the Cell acceleration is actually used you can press L3 during video playback to see the status window. Make sure that the video codec mentions (Cell) at the end of the row. Just like in this screenshot.

You're welcome!

Features:

1. Playback of video and audio
2. Javascript plugins
3. Unified search
4. View photos and images in slideshow mode
5. Live TV streaming from Tvheadend
6. Spotify integration
