Purpose:

  • Allows access to optical data discs (DVD-R/RW, CD-R/RW, BD-R/RE) which usually are not accessible in homebrew apps

Installation:

  • Copy "stDISC.pkg" to the root of a USB drive/stick
  • Install from [Game] column -> [* Install Package Files]
  • "Showtime (Disc access)" entry will appear in the [Video] column in XMB
  • Launch it with data disc in the tray
  • In 5-10 seconds your Showtime Media Player will load with disc access

Enjoy!

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.
