To quote from his blog (linked above): Facanferff strikes again with the first Showtime Skin Ever! The skin is called Oceanus, with it you’ll be able to use different views for a better Showtime experience.

This first version supports already several views that you can enjoy. Check it out!

  • Array view (photo taken from Vevo plugin)
  • Artists view (photo taken from Vevo plugin)
  • Posters view (photo taken from Crackle plugin)
  • List view (photo taken from Youtube plugin)
  • List 2 view (photo taken from Youtube plugin) This view is the default one.

“Oceanus was the Titan of Water. When I started creating the skin I always wanted to create something that would be enjoyable, flexible and that would expand Showtime experience in new ways and Oceanus is all about that.” -Facanferff

“Special Thanks to Tyrant for beta testing and giving fresh ideas” -Facanferff

This new skin really makes the user experience much more enjoyable and it also takes the Showtime plugins to a whole new level!

Info: Coming soon to Official Plugin Repo.

Installation: Needs Showtime with 4.1 or later.

  • Put the zip archive in /dev_hdd0/game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins/

FAQ:

1. How can I change between views?

To change between views open the page menu (Triangle button in PS3 or F1 in PC) and click continuously in View setting to select a view.

2. I’m finding issues with the plugin, what can I do?

Hey all..

Great work with the homebrew home theater..

I used this all the time to listen streamed music but one thing I have a problem with is the stuttering with watching movies bein streamed and even on my PS3's hard drive. Is this just for me or is it happening to others to ?? my movie files are mostly 720p MP4 x264

cheers

Showtime is not a 'new' application. It is a cross platform media center, which was ported by its author to PS3.

As you can see its current version is 2.99 (3.0 will follow soon) and it is available for various platforms like wii, linux, mac os, etc.

Because of some PS3 hardware specifics, the PS3 port may need some tweaks, but in no words this is a new and untested application!

Many thanks to the author Andreas Íman (and all other participants).

Normally when one releases a prototype application this is how it advances

1. A 1.0.1 version is released that fixes bugs/ increases performance

2. After about 5 or so of these releases they finally get to adding easy to implement features ala NTFS via the already released binaries

3. Add new (more advanced) features such as plugin support

4. Restart from step one and go on to step three

This is probably how this application will advance; hopefully he's not a Hermes

works great on PS3ITA 3.55 mkv support. Used mkvtools (mac only don't have a window) to split the files bigger the 4GB so the fit on Fat32 HDD.
