Showtime Andreas Öman has released a new stable build of Movian v4.10 (formerly known as Showtime Media Player)

This release is mostly about stability and improvement of already present features. In particular the HLS streamer received a lot of love. Downloads are available here

  • Added magnet torrent links support
  • Support browsing local network for Windows/Samba servers and also browsing shared folders on each server.
  • Upgrade to libav 11

Vastly improved HLS demuxer

  • More robust streaming of live content.
  • Support for supplementary audio tracks (multiple languages, etc).
  • Improved adaptive bitrate switching.

Raspberry Pi specific features

  • Support for Raspberry Pi 2.
  • Audio pass-thru over HDMI.
  • Automatic deinterlacing of interlaced content.

The future

I will now start working on the 5.0 release which will focus on an updated user interface. Stay tuned…

Have fun!
