Showtime v4.3.207 (test build) – Includes FTP

April 30, 2013

A test build of Showtime is available, and what special for this new build is it brings FTP support. The FTP feature is still in beta, so besure to report any issues you encounter with it!


Fix bug making ‘Refresh metdata…’ option in item menu not to work at all


Avoid loading .mkv attachments into RAM

Instead we keep a reference to where in the MKV file the attachment
is located and we can later open a slice of the mkv-file as the attachment.

This combined with the fact that freetype can open fonts from a file
handle reduces the static memory use for attachments to 0 bytes

Fixes #1689 (out of memory (av error -12) with certain MKV files)


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

Fixes #1697


Add Danish translation


Fix bug that caused “Custom search query” to disappear for video items

Fixes #1696


Fix a bunch of memory leaks
