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.

More PlayStation 3 News...
Thanks for the update whiteclad57 (and barrybarryk), I will promote this to the main page a bit later tonight as well and +Rep!
That's OK, we can take care of that... better to see nice guys like you making an effort to post news than remaining idle here like most.
Theres a file I want to watch, its a AVI file but for some reason the PS3 says it corrupted. PC plays it with ease... I really hope this can play it... Thanks for the update...
So the PKG doesn't work with Waninkoko V2? What a bummer, I was gonna give this a try this time round as well.
Please will someone make it work with Waninkoko, I would myself but I'm clueless as to how it's done!
Anyone tested the Spotify functionality yet? Frankly - I'd like to see a "standalone" version of fully featured Spotify client / player (minus advertisement indeed) as well ...
