Get The Popcorn Ready, its Showtime!

May 4, 2012

Guess what time it is?  You got it, its Showtime.  That’s right Showtime has received another update to the test build today which adds some extra features and fixes some bugs as usual.  Want to know what’s new in this release?  Keep reading and you’ll see.

Showtime already gives us lots of features and a wide variety of formats to view our favorite movies in.  Now we have a little more continuous playback of videos in the directory which would be good I guess for a music video mix or maybe a Big Bang theory marathon or something.

As always when dealing with the test build please remember that this is not a fully stable version and is a constant work in progress.  So if you’re having an issue report it and maybe it will be fixed in the next update.


Add support for continuous playback of all video items in a directory

This needs to be enabled in the video playback settings (default off)

Fixes #501
Fixed #530
Fixes #864
Fixes #875


ps3: Switch memory allocator to TLSF

This is another attempt to fix the out of memory issues that has
been plauging Showtime for quite some while.
So far it looks much better than when using jemalloc


ps3: Fix DVD playback

Showtime should now be able to play back both ISO files and
VIDEO_TS DVD folders.

Fixes #507
Fixes #921
