To quote: MUZU TV is an Irish owned interactive music Web site featuring free music content legal video sharing Web site. Co-founded by Ciaran Bollard and Mark French, it was launched in Ireland and the United Kingdom on 16 July 2008. Seven million videos were played monthly and there were two million users within one year of the launch, with users creating their own TV channel.

Note: In the first image you see black/white images, it is because I was using VirtualBox, on PS3 they are full of colors.

Current features:

  • HD support (about 90% of videos on ps3 work with this setting)
  • Limit number of entries per request (default is 150, it is used to avoid memory fullness and possible crashes)
  • Browse for videos in any genre or in a specific genre(e.g.: rock)
  • Top Charts from Muzu.TV
  • Top playlists from Muzu.TV
  • Browse for videos from an artist (using search box in Showtime's homepage, you need an external keyboard, there is no Virtual Keyboard yet supported in Showtime)

The plugin is not available yet on Plugin Central but should be very soon. At the moment you should install it putting the ZIP file (UNextracted) in the folder settings/installedplugins on Showtime folder (in FTP).

Note: If in any video it shows "Cpu is too slow..." or "Cell forcing level 4.2...", it is handled by Showtime not the plugin.

Yes, it is happening with H.264 (AVC) videos (720p, 1080p) and MPEG2 1920x1080i. It seems that ffmpeg's libavcodec will need some optimizations for H.264 decoding, specific to the PS3, or something... DivX/XviD 720p plays perfect, although in all modes subtitles are not available (debug error: cannot create/display subtitle image... or something similar).

Hey all..

Great work with the homebrew home theater..

I used this all the time to listen streamed music but one thing I have a problem with is the stuttering with watching movies bein streamed and even on my PS3's hard drive. Is this just for me or is it happening to others to ?? my movie files are mostly 720p MP4 x264

cheers

Showtime is not a 'new' application. It is a cross platform media center, which was ported by its author to PS3.

As you can see its current version is 2.99 (3.0 will follow soon) and it is available for various platforms like wii, linux, mac os, etc.

Because of some PS3 hardware specifics, the PS3 port may need some tweaks, but in no words this is a new and untested application!

Many thanks to the author Andreas Íman (and all other participants).

Normally when one releases a prototype application this is how it advances

1. A 1.0.1 version is released that fixes bugs/ increases performance

2. After about 5 or so of these releases they finally get to adding easy to implement features ala NTFS via the already released binaries

3. Add new (more advanced) features such as plugin support

4. Restart from step one and go on to step three

This is probably how this application will advance; hopefully he's not a Hermes

works great on PS3ITA 3.55 mkv support. Used mkvtools (mac only don't have a window) to split the files bigger the 4GB so the fit on Fat32 HDD.
