I am a big fan of Firecore's ATV Flash. I have it running on my original ATV and am considering for my ATV2 at some point.

Media Player is the most useful part of it all for me so here is what's new in version 0.6

  • Added AC3 and DTS (5.1+ surround) sound
  • Added access to DVD menus during playback (press menu)
  • Added low buffer detection warning (prevents stuttering)
  • Improved playback of larger files
  • Improved buffering and re-buffering (when required)
  • Improved FF/RW controls for larger files
  • Improved audio decoding performance
  • Improved center channel (voices) audio mixing
  • Improved DVD file playback
  • Improved file sorting logic
  • Improved performance and memory management
  • Improved error handling
  • Resolved DVD subtitle issues
  • Resolved stalls observed with some files during and after FF/RW
  • Resolved synchronization issues observed after buffering some files
  • Resolved audio synchronization issues
  • Resolved rare floating crash observed at the end of some files
  • Resolved resume related playback issues
  • Resolved various screensaver related issues
  • Local files are now hidden when one or more remote shares are setup
  • Minor metadata fetching improvements
  • Minor UI improvements
  • Other miscellaneous fixes

Hi Hugh,

The ATV Flash site mentions they add support for MKV, AVI, etc. video files. How exactly does this work? Is it somehow integrated with the native video player or is it simply XBMC that provides that functionality? I already have jailbroken ATV gen 1 and gen 2 devices so I'm wondering if ATV Flash buys me anything. I like XBMC fine but it would also be handy to be able to play movies, etc. through the native video player instead of having to load XBMC.
