App supports playback, scrobbling

FireCore has launched aTV Flash 4.2, updating the Apple TV hack with support for Last.fm's music streaming service. aTV Flash is primarily devoted to enabling formats such AVI, MKV, WMV and VIDEO_TS, normally incompatible with Apple's firmware. It also adds a WebKit-based web browser, and permits expanded storage using an external USB hard drive.

The update also improves weather forecast presentations, as well as Sapphire and NitoTV support.
