To quote from his page linked above: After about a month of hacking I'm happy to announce that Showtime now can be run as a native "homebrew" application on the PS3. See PS3 usage guide for more information of how to get started.

Most of this should work except for playback of high res. HD videos (basically when the PPU runs out of cycles). There are a bunch of strategies for how this should be handled but I've not had time to start digging into this yet

Video output

Showtime on PS3 has been tested with 576i, 720p and 1080i video resolutions.

I've tried to set reasonable defaults for overscan compensation. But if it not correct for you it can be adjusted under Settings -> Display and UI settings

Buttons on controller

✕ Activate (Enter) currently focused item
○ Navigate back
△ Bring up options / playcontrol menu
□ Screensaver (Until something better has been figured out)
► Play/Pause
▬ Home menu
✜ Navigate

L3 - Bring up playback info (During video playback)
R3 - Bring up log console

Keyboard

  • Plugging in a standard keyboard in the PS3 USB port works and is currently the only way to input characters.
  • No virtual keyboard is supported at the moment.

Other stuff that does not work

  • TV-style remote controller (whatever that's called) has not been tested. No idea if it works or not.
  • BD/DVD/CD Discs - No idea how that works
  • Digital pass thru audio (AC3, DTS, etc)

Bugs?

There are probably plenty of those. Please use the issue tracker at [Register or Login to view links]

I have some anime in mkv but the subtitles dont appear.

Have you done something to make the subtitles appear or you only have opened the file?

The point would be in having an app that can natively (without computers OR SMB support) run .mkv's / .avi's / music on a PS3 system. Add to this the NTFS library and all you'll ever need is a 1tb USB HDD connected to your PS3.

And if it's not useful for you, it is for others so don't dismiss it so soon.

no SMB support what is the point, we need a media server that does not require a computer to have a upnp transcoding application running to be able to view media files. we need something with SMB support so that we can access network shares and let the ps3 transcode the media like vlc does when you watch something over network share, the same way XBMC does...

where is XBMC for ps3 come on best media program EVER!

I use playon for my upnp media server from my pc and it works just fine and gives all needed options to use all the plugins to access many online movie/tv websites and they all work without running any app on the ps3 because the ps3 find the media server automatically so what is the point in having this.
