Showtime PS3 Media Player 3.1.126 Arrives with Plugin Support


141w ago - It's been awhile since his last release, but today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman is back with Showtime PS3 Media Player 3.1.126 which includes real Plugin support!

Download: Showtime PS3 Media Player 3.1.126 PKG / Showtime PS3 Media Player 3.1.126 SELF / Showtime PS3 Media Player Plugin Docs / Showtime PS3 Swedish Translation / Showtime PS3 Translations / Showtime PS3 Translations Guide / GIT

To quote: This release contains the new online plugin repository. Still there are no other plugins that previously available but we will hopefully see some new plugins coming in shortly.

On top of this the new release also includes translations of Showtime to:

  • German
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Swedish

Starting from 3.1.126 Showtime now support "real" plugins.

By "real" plugins I mean plugins that can be loaded and installed from an online repository.
This allows third party plugin developers to rapidly develop plugins and make them available to the general public.

It's also possible to copy a plugin (which is just a .zip-file) onto a filesystem that Showtime can access and then just install the plugin from Showtime itself.

I've also started to write some documentation for how to develop plugins.

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 man (and all other participants).
