Showtime Mediacenter - Official Stable Build 3.6.5 / Testing Build 3.99.25 Changelog:

3.6.5-ga0e171a

  • PS3: Fixed broken MPEG-2 video decoding
  • Fixes #958

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)

Showtime gets a welcome update: [Register or Login to view links]

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.

Man, I really wanted to try this, but it doesn't install on my f.w 3.15 machine. I wish more developers wouldn't forget us who still use Other OS linux and therefore still run f.w 3.15 until someone enables OtherOs on higher or cfw. I have the same problem with Multiman, having to run the older v.1.12 instead of v.1.16 which is FAR better! sigh.. keep waiting i guess, i'm not giving up my YDL Zerogame emulator..

This is extremely impressive. This is the main reason I have jailbreaked my PS3. Once this has been fully optimized for the PS3 I will be in heaven. Thanks so much.
