34w ago - Following up on the Version 4.0 release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has updated the Showtime PS3 Media Player Testing Build to version 4.1.100 with the changes outlined below.
Add support for setting custom movie titles directly from the item popup menu
Add an action in settings->general to clear the entire metadb item table.
Safeguarded with a popup as it is a non-revocable action.
ps3: When seeking using L2/R2, rescale seek delta based on duration of feature
In principle this make it so that the user can always seek from begining to end in ~2 seconds regardless of how long the currently playing media is.
Add Exit and Standby as items in the page popup menu
Only reset screensaver timer if movie is actually playing
Add support for plugins that can replace certain parts of the UI
Add support for categorization of plugins
When browsing available plugins they will appear under a category instead of a single long list
TMDB: Let user choose which language to use for TMDB
Also lets user choose if to display the original title or translated title
Don't set resume time for videos if current position < one minute
This makes sure the user does not accidentally lose the resume position if restarting the video from beginning by mistake
Let 'mark as seen' create entry in item table if it does not exist
Improve Showtime's response time to play/pause events

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.
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.
