Showtime Gets Disk Support

July 6, 2012

Showtime the popular media player is getting a plugin to enable music, video and pictures from your disk based storage of choice.

If you’re like me and you like to store your movies on a DivX disk then you’re going to enjoy this add-on for andbey0nd’s media player homebrew Showtime. That’s right, all you have to do is install this and all of your data DVD/CD/BD will be accessible and useable with Showtime, something that I have personally been waiting for since the first release of the App. That’s not all you’ll get out of this though.  You will also be able to take screenshots, listen to music while looking at photos and watch your movies on your PSP and PS Vita with remote play or whatever else you remote play with. Have a read of andbey0nd’s release below and enjoy the benefits of this great homebrew.

Showtime Disc Access (stDISC.pkg 100kb)
=======================================

Requirements:

* CFW/MFW 3.41/3.55 with peek/poke/lv1 access (KMEAW/REBUG/ROGERO/HERMES)
* Showtime media player 3.99+ or Showtime for multiMAN (installed in default location)
* Data DVD/CD/BD in the PS3 tray (video/music/photo content)

Purpose:

* Allows access to optical data discs (DVD-R/RW, CD-R/RW, BD-R/RE) which usually are not accessible in homebrew apps
* Minimizes the steps to access content stored on such optical discs (no need to launch multiMAN with DirectDiscAccess)
* Allows Showtime to play all your backup videos/music if you used optical media

Extras:

* You can take screenshots of movies while Showtime is playing
* You can play music from XMB [Music] column while Showtime is displaying photo slideshow
* You can use “Remote Play” to watch videos on your PSP / PS Vita or other compatible devices

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!
