162w 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!

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.

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.
