Showtime PS3 Media Player v3.5.72 Changelog:
PS3: Use jemalloc instead of newlib's malloc
Using jemalloc significantly reduces memory fragmentation and thus mitigates the out of memory conditions that happens
now and then when using Showtime (in particular during movie playback)
It's also much more efficient than newlib's malloc thanks to per-thread caching of allocation and per-thread memory arenas
For more information about jemalloc, see http://http://www.canonware.com/jemalloc/
Upgrade Showtime to use libav 0.8.1
This adds better support for multithreaded decoders and a lot
of stability fixes.
For more details please see http://www.libav.org/releases/libav-0.8.release
Upgrade Spotify integration to use libspotify 11
Add user setting for configuring the VDPAU deinterlacer (Linux only)
