    The LonelyCoder aka andoma has released a wonderful new version of his OpenSource PS3 Media Player called Showtime!

    Here is the list of recent changes and improvements to his amazing project:


    A few embarrassing bugs slipped into the last release.

    •Fix alignment issues with subtitles.
    Make sure each rendered text line is aligned same way as the text bounding box
    Fixes ticket #497
    •Don't crash if text rendering fails
    •freetype: If we are unable to get a face with style modifiers, try to get one without
    It's ok since we can do italic and bold ourselfs. Before this Showtime crashed
    •httpclient: Fix regression with non-chunked transfered data
    Problem when reading last bytes of file (truncated reads)

    •New PS3 icon in XMB (credits to gizmo)

    •Fixes for Twonky UPNP/DLNA server
    •Fix playback of some AVI files (Timestamp problems)
    •Plug a bunch of memory leaks

    - Size adjustment (no longer scale from UI settings)
    - Possible to have Showtime always select a subtitle if one is found
    •Faster start of video playback from upnp (use mimetype to infer container format instead of probing)
    •Improve buffer management, see 7ecd2e76
    •Improve performance of browsing RAR archives
    •Make work again
