Eugene Plotnikov has updated his SMS (Simple Media System) multimedia playing application for the Sony PS2. Using this program you can view multimedia files including DIVX, AVI, XVID, MPEG, MP3, etc … on your Sony Playstation 2 video gaming console.


– added FLAC audio support;
– added small (32 entries FIFO) history buffer for video clips. It is saved into ‘SMS’ folder on the memory card. History is based on the absolute file name. Only clips that were ended by the user action (triangle gamepad button) are added/updated to the history buffer and the buffer is saved automatically, so there can be some pause when playback is ended by the user;
– added support for raw .ac3 audio files;
– added functionality to control vertical image position for video clips. It is available via player menu during playback and may be useful to display subtitles more nicely;
– updated USB mass storage driver (added device handling with sector sizes other than 512 bytes);
– updated network driver;
