What Andreus is saying is, this plugin makes your ps3 able to watch live tv feeds using the rtmp streaming format with showtime.
Not that I have used webmedia plugin myself, but have used others in the past and as far as I know you use or create xml files with your tv listings in, then within showtime you run the webmedia plugin, then the webmedia plugin looks for a xml file and TV icons hosted where you wish and then connects to the TV live feed and plays it.
You will need a fast internet connection as it uses loads of bandwidth depending where your dragging the feeds from, so there are a number of things you need to consider with using rss feeds, like most feeds are in formats that the ps3 will not play unless you change what codecs the feeds use when you create your xml file.
This plugin as good as it maybe, is only the player, you will need to gather your channels yourself then have a xml file served on a server to watch live tv channels.
Hi guys, I'm having a bit of a problem with showtime since the 312 release.
Ever since I installed this version and the next .328 and the latest .344; I've been having some issues: evertime I try to watch an mkv file from my external drive, showtime crashes showing a blackscreen on my tv, and freezing my ps3.
Anyone facing this same issue?? Any ideas on how to solve this??
Try installing latest showtime unofficial release. Andreas Oman, showtime developer, as corrected several bugs.

And as the plugin name says it all depends on the web, so of course the betters your connection the better your experience. But you don't need much I have only copper 24Mbit/s connection connect to PS3 from wireless g router and works very good.
If anyone needs help ask.

Showtime PS3 Khan Academy v1.0 & YouTube v1.2.5 Plugins Arrive
This weekend PlayStation 3 developer facanferff has released Khan Academy v1.0 and YouTube v1.2.5 (which includes subtitle support) Plugin updates for the Showtime PS3 Media Player homebrew application.
To quote: The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit educational organization, created in 2006 by Bangladeshi American educator Salman Khan, a graduate of MIT.
With the stated mission of "providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere", the Web site supplies a free online collection of more than 2,700 micro lectures via video tutorials teaching Mathematics, History, Healthcare & Medicine, Finance, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy, Economics, Cosmology and Computer Science.
With this plugin, learning advanced Math is easier than ever it was. And you can choose too a language as subtitle.
Note: Thanks to GPatel for the logo.
YouTube v1.2.5: This is a minor update to Youtube, but the new feature is one that I think is one of interest to many users, with it you can, for example, watch a music video and in real time read the lyrics of the song on the screen.
Add: Subtitles support (via Universal Subtitles) (you need to activate the setting for it, see last photo)
Enhancement: Unescape two times titles because some of them are double escaped
Fix: Some videos would not get the video id correctly from playlists
1. Where do I must install these plugins?
Put the the zip files from the download links above at /dev_hdd0/game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins.
2. No virtual keyboard support?
At the moment that is not possible, maybe in future.
