Target version:-


the showtime is very powerful on ps3, it can play most video file on internet with cell decoder, even the video is 1080p, this is very excited!
so i decide to devlep a plugin to play ott content video in china! this work is very useful!
but i meet a problem: many video is split into several segment file, and format is flv or mp4, so i find the way to solve in past discuss and get no!
what i need is, the showtime can accepted a who movie that's splited into several segment, and can give a api to accept this, please refer to below!

what i need is not the playlist, playlist is not a goog way to solve the problem!
1: there will be a black screen between two video in the playlist, and can't be played back in all the video in playlist!
2: in internet, it is very common to split a movie into several segment file to store on server, like hls, but the format can be flv, mp4 etc, in this case, showtime will be able to play all the segment file as a whole movie! in this way, a user can give the url by this format "http://host/1.flv|http://host/2.flv|http://host/3.flv"(suggest)

if the showtime can support this feature, i will develop a plugin to most chinese user, it will work as a android tv box to ps3 user, it very useful to most user, i expect this function.

thanks a lot!
