Showtime PS3 Media Player v3.5.122 Changelog:

Fixes #886

3.5.105-ga4e10cc

ps3: Round timestamps to ms precision before feeding them to the SPU decoder

For some unholy reason the SPU decoder seems to hang when timestamps are not rounded to ms precision. I've no idea why.

Fixes #640
Fixes #662
Fixes #890

3.5.69-ga3159fe

PS3: Use jemalloc instead of newlib's malloc

Using jemalloc significantly reduces memory fragmentation and thus mitigates the out of memory conditions that happens now and then when using Showtime (in particular during movie playback)

It's also much more efficient than newlib's malloc thanks to per-thread caching of allocation and per-thread memory arenas

For more information about jemalloc, see http://http://www.canonware.com/jemalloc/

3.5.61-g6dfd6a5

Upgrade Showtime to use libav 0.8.1

This adds better support for multithreaded decoders and a lot of stability fixes.

For more details please see http://www.libav.org/releases/libav-0.8.release

3.5.55-g0d4a597

Upgrade Spotify integration to use libspotify 11

3.5.48-g43037d7

Add user setting for configuring the VDPAU deinterlacer (Linux only)

Today Andreas Oman has updated his Showtime Media Player HTPC port for the PS3. The new release now includes 1080p playback at a constant speed and unconfirmed DVD playback.

Download: Showtime PS3 Media Player 1080p PKG / Showtime PS3 Media Player 1080p SELF

To quote: 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. Just like in this screenshot.

You're welcome!

Features:

1. Playback of video and audio
2. Javascript plugins
3. Unified search
4. View photos and images in slideshow mode
5. Live TV streaming from Tvheadend
6. Spotify integration

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.
