Muzu TV v0.7 Showtime PlayStation 3 Media Player Plugin Arrives


132w ago - Following up on his Showtime PS3 Media Player YouTube v1.0 Plugin, today PlayStation 3 developer facanferff has released a Muzu TV version 0.7 Showtime Plugin for the PS3 console.

Download: Muzu TV v0.7 Showtime PS3 Media Player Plugin / GIT

To quote: MUZU TV is an Irish owned interactive music Web site featuring free music content legal video sharing Web site. Co-founded by Ciaran Bollard and Mark French, it was launched in Ireland and the United Kingdom on 16 July 2008. Seven million videos were played monthly and there were two million users within one year of the launch, with users creating their own TV channel.

Note: In the first image you see black/white images, it is because I was using VirtualBox, on PS3 they are full of colors.

Current features:

  • HD support (about 90% of videos on ps3 work with this setting)
  • Limit number of entries per request (default is 150, it is used to avoid memory fullness and possible crashes)
  • Browse for videos in any genre or in a specific genre(e.g.: rock)
  • Top Charts from Muzu.TV
  • Top playlists from Muzu.TV
  • Browse for videos from an artist (using search box in Showtime's homepage, you need an external keyboard, there is no Virtual Keyboard yet supported in Showtime)

The plugin is not available yet on Plugin Central but should be very soon. At the moment you should install it putting the ZIP file (UNextracted) in the folder settings/installedplugins on Showtime folder (in FTP).

Note: If in any video it shows "Cpu is too slow..." or "Cell forcing level 4.2...", it is handled by Showtime not the plugin.

This weekend PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Facanferff has announced the release of the first Showtime PS3 Media Player skin called Oceanus for the application.

Download: Showtime PS3 Media Player Skin Oceanus / Showtime PS3 Media Player Skin Oceanus PKG (Installable from the “Package Files” options) by wizzkidd / Oceanus Skin Plugin for Showtime 04.01+ [CEX] XMB Install Package: Showtime (Standalone) / Oceanus Skin Plugin for Showtime 04.01+ [CEX] XMB Install Package: Showtime (multiMAN Edition) by facanferff

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?

Fill a report if it wasn’t reported already at lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/showtime.
