Showtime 4.4 Released

Added by Andreas Smas about 7 years ago

Over 750 commits later I've finally decided to release Showtime 4.4

Some of the most prominent features are:

Raspberry Pi support

Full SD images are available that turns your RPi into a Showtime powered media center.

SD Card images can be downloaded at:

The STOS (Showtime OS) have built-in upgrades of both the Showtime application itself and the whole system (including the Linux kernel)

PS3 specific changes

  • NTFS support. Both Read and Write (Finally!)
  • Ability to turn off system when video playback is completed
  • Use X button for Play/Pause

General new features

  • Built-in FTP Server
  • Automatic code page detection. Showtime will guess the code page used for SRT files, etc based on language heuristics.
  • FTP client support (Stream content directly from FTP servers)
  • Ability to delete file and folders where applicable
  • Custom background (via plugin)
  • .sub (Microdvd) support
  • Much improved support for loading subtitles from different locations
  • Ability to activate/devative automatic metadata lookup per-folder
  • Mark all items in folder seen/unseen
  • On Screen Keyboard on systems other than PS3
  • Subtitle position can be configured per movie

Plus a lot more bug fixes. For the full list of issues closed see:

Have fun! /Andreas

Hi ..
Thank you for this useful software.
I have a question:
Why Showtime software does not support Farsi subtitles?
