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.
1. Playback of video and audio
3. Unified search
4. View photos and images in slideshow mode
5. Live TV streaming from Tvheadend
6. Spotify integration

damn, i update to testing all the time to see if certain problems get fixed. anyways, videos will still quit out at a random point if i pause them for too long. i think it jumps to the end cause if i have resume playback, it just starts the video over
The meta feature of showtime is really a big epic fail, it just doesnt work as it should since every video that I got in my library show the same title like, Avatar, wow! I have Avatar on my collection even if I dont.
Else, the GUI is just look sexy, just dont like the bigger Icons today, I just the way it look like in 4.00
But at least there are one or more bugs were fixed, none of them were related fixing the various SMB bugs that most of the time crashes the PS3.
