Latest Showtime Test Build Incorporates FTP Client

April 28, 2013

The Lonely Coder is at it as well pumping out new test builds of Showtime. If you haven’t been following the development, there’s a new FTP client that has recently been added to the homebrew app along with the myriad of bugfixes and updated translations. Here’s the full changelog detailing how the FTP client works.


  • Initial attempt of a built-in FTP client in Showtime. To use it enter ‘ftp://ip.address.of.ftpserver’ in search bar or create a bookmark (much like the CIFS/SMB client).

Note that the code has only been tested against a few FTP servers so it’s probably still buggy. If you find any problems and want to report, please turn on “FTP logging” in settings:dev and include the logfile in ticket.



  • upnp: Include video playback URL in canonical URL

Fixes problem with UPNP servers that just give sequential numbers to directory items. If just using the URL items would be confused with other items if video are removed from the directory.





  • Fix bug that caused “Custom search query” to disappear for video items
  • Fixes #1696



  • Fix a bunch of memory leaks

You can download the latest test build of Showtime Mediacenter below.
