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 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'm sick of hearing about XBMC... these are still early days as far as homebrew media players for PS3s, they will get better.
I agree with you - however, it depends on how it is referenced. 'When will we get XBMC?' is pretty annoying, and I'd rather have a native PS3 app just like this. Just keep in mind the standard it set for homebrew multimedia playback and management.

Might the spu-medialib stuff be of use? I don't know much (anything) about multimedia programming, but the cell-based functions could be used as a basis for implementation here, yes?

i could convert mkv to avchd but some large files (mostly 1080p) don't want to convert at all and with the new firmware update 720p movies get the image cropped at the top right 1/4th of the screen upon playback.

If you want to play .mkv files, just download and install the latest divx bundle. After that you'll be able to play .mkv files on your ps3.
how and what do you mean by this? i have been wanting to play mkv on my ps3 since day 1.
