• An Update of the famous PS3 Media Player Showtime has been released. Thanks to Andreas Öman for his great Application!

    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 that is not saved to disk
    Add support for passing mimetypes internally. This speed up media loading and playback start.
    ps3: Update XMB icon (better centered)
    Make SRT subtitle discovery better
    Add support for setting subtitle output delay
    Add seek-by-thumbnail in the command popup menu (looks very bad on ps3 at the moment though)
    ui: Redesign the auth popup
    Improve the setting views
    ps3: Add support for BD remote
    Add support for cycling between audio and subtitle tracks using a single button
    Make presentation of audio and subtitle tracks better
    Improve subtitle rendering. There is a lot of changes here. see bc0cf58e and 76142920
    ps3: Display all reasonable entries found in system VFS root as services on their own
    ps3: If display operates in non-square pixel 16:9 mode, scale UI accordingly
    Use libav.org’s recently released 0.7 version (with a couple of bug fixes on top)

      I put that for the exact purpose, i don't clone other people news, so i don't expect them to clone mine...

      PSX Scene has been doing 1:1 cloning lately and im p�ssed of with it, so i put it there in the hope the cloner wouldn't see it...

      EDIT:
      If anyone submits news, that is a clone, i edit it, i detest cloning as it makes the website look tacky and lazy.

      Why should that line get deleted when that is what is happening. They don't write articles anymore, they take ours and clone them 1:1 without quotation. Yes they are kind enough to source, but that is ps3(evil site).com crap to clone 1:1. It didn't happen, until psx-scene was bought.

      Does this works for waninkoko? All the previous releases were only for GeoHot and someone else repacked it always. Can someone do that please?

      Also, the previous version sais they load srt subs, but it never did for me. My subs are in the same folder than the video and both have the same name.

      lmao and hasnt the guy sold on the site to some "professional" site admin company or something? nice to see that person is getting paid for good researching and article writing.

      It's simple, you have a copyright notice, tell them to take down the article or your lawyers will be knocking :P

      Oh... sorry , my bad ... I completely misinterpreted it . One of the disadvantages of not being a native english speaker I guess. Though with the greyish theme color on the front page it is rather easy to spot

      I think you have to turn Subs on.

      Just a noob question: It's possible to change the subtitle's font and colour?
      Thanks

      This is a great app. Use it all the time. Fully appreciative but I'm just wondering why when I try play a large file (split into .666s - let's say 10gb) why it plays so unstable. Any ideas? Oh yeah does it support MKV yet?

      Has anyone managed to play dvd iso's or Video TS? I swear I did, but cannot remember with which version.

      I wrote to Andreas and he said he's too busy to deal with this right now

      It has supported MKV for quite awhile now, so yes this version still supports it.

      To turn on subtitles, press triangle while a movie is playing and you should enter the playback menu, then you use the D-pad to move up and to the right to find the icon that looks like a scroll of paper. That should be the subtitle submenu. Select that with X and then move your selection to the stream you want. That's from memory, but that should do it.

      Also, maybe your subtitles are set "Off" by default, so you might want to check the General Settings menu (which looks like a circular gear icon) and find the Subtitles section to turn the default setting to whatever language/option you'd like.

      EDIT: Can anyone tell me why my text only goes halfway across this posting space?
