Showtime Gets Some Updates

September 22, 2012

One feature I like is that you wont lose “resume playback” if you accidentally start your video from the beginning. Other additions include plugin categories and  faster seeking.

On similar news PlayStation 3 developer Deank, known for multiMAN, has compiled what he calls a “dirty” release for those who would like to use this test build within multiMAN. Please note that you can also download the update within multiMAN.
