81w ago - Following up on the previous revision, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has updated the Showtime PS3 Media Player Stable Build to version 3.6.5 and the Testing Build to version 3.99.25 with the changes outlined below.
Description: Latest from SVN can't play mpeg-2 video
The latest from SVN stopped playing an 1080p mpeg-2 remux I have (it will play the audio only).
Also, why not prioritize external subtitles. That's the only modification I add myself (I posted the code somewhere in redmine).
Usually, if you add an external subtitle, it's because all the internal ones are crappy (grammatical errors, OCR errors, bad translations, etc)

MKV DOES in fact play, the resolution and video quality itself is near perfect, if not perfect. But the rendering speed is quite slow, and the audio goes faster than the video causing it to go out of sync immediately. Also, subtitles are not supported.
