Showtime PS3 v3.1.228 with Multichannel Audio Output Arrives

151w ago - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Andreas Oman has officially updated Showtime PS3 Media Player to version 3.1.228, which now includes multichannel audio output on the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Another release. This build adds support for multichannel audio output on PS3 (AC-3, DTS and 8 channel linear PCM). Note that due to how the PS3 audio frameworks applications can not output raw digital bitstreams.

So Showtime still needs to decode the audio and than the PS3 will reencode the audio in the best available encoding mode the user has selected (or don't do any encoding at all if 8 channel PCM is available)

Still this is a major step compared to having just 2 channel stereo.

For all you who roll your own builds of Showtime, please note that you need latest version of my PSL1GHT fork for Showtime to build.

I've also fixed a major memory leak that manifested itself when rendering fonts with outline (which is default for subtitles). So if you watched a movie with subtitles the memory would drain and Showtime would eventually crash.

Another thing is the increase of packet buffer to 40MB in conjunction with some adjustments to socket buffers, etc. This should hopefully make streaming over lousy wireless connections better.

Have fun!

Andreas

works great on PS3ITA 3.55 mkv support. Used mkvtools (mac only don't have a window) to split the files bigger the 4GB so the fit on Fat32 HDD.

Does anyone knows if it works on Waninkoko`s V2 CFW 3.55. I got only error

Yes it works, it was also giving me that error, then I tried repack for 3.41 version and it supprisingly works.
