Hello, I'm using Showtime to read video files stored on an "UPnP Media Server" via WiFi connection. Sometimes with big MKV files, WiFi is too slow (or connection is too bad) and video is lagging. Is there any way to copy the video file before reading it. In others words, can I copy file from Media Server (or network drive) to PS3 HDD. Thanks for help.

Edit: Perhaps Comgenie's Awesome Filemanager or Multiman can do this kind of copy but I did not manage?

Sorry for the double post, but I can no more edit it...

2 questions, first i have a little problem with the showtime youtube plugin.

i have the 4.1.208 version of showtime and the latest version of youtube for it. i have authenticated youtube but whenever i go on my user profile i get this message:

unable to open resource
youtube:user:default
ReferenceError: reference to undefined property data.yt$username

and i can't login into my youtube account. can anybody please tell me how to fix this or if it even can be fixed at all. i tried uninstalling and reinstaling everything, re-authenticating ....

second i have troubles with getting showtime to see some plugins like megaviewer, hd-trailers, game trailers and so on. i put the rar's in the appropriate folder but they don't show once i go to the plugging section of showtime

can anybody help me out here?? thanks

Below are the changes, as follows:

The first major release of the plugin was more than a year ago and now it is time to renew that experience and provide a improved experience that I hope everyone will enjoy. Please see carefully the changelog so you know exactly what's new:

v2.25 Changelog:

  • Add: Itemhook "Search in Youtube" for video entries in Showtime (in item menu,
    you can use this feature to search for videos in Youtube given any title of a video item in Showtime) (requires 4.3.261)
  • Add: Show debug information if setting is enabled

2.2.1

  • Fix: Search for space separated queries

  • Add: Show more information for videos in pages using API v3 (enable in Settings)
  • Enhancement: Improved User Profile
  • Enhancement: Started work to upgrade plugin from API v2 to v3

As you may see several things that were being asked since the first release are now here, fresh and ready to be used.

Showtime Plugin Youtube changes:

  • The new Home Screen, using SELECT + Arrows in PS3 you can customize the order of the items.
  • The improved item listing.
  • The new Youtube Search screen providing easy to use search for everything you want.
  • The new advanced mode in videos, cleaner and easier to use.
  • The new User Profile screen, featuring an easy to use and fast experience.

Installation:

Go to Plugin Central (puzzle icon in home screen) inside Showtime and download the plugin.

Special thanks:

  • andoma: for creating Showtime and maintaining it
  • Tyrant: for beta testing the plugin and giving fresh ideas

Note:

  • When testing, my Beta Tester (El Tyrant) found that the resume videos of Showtime does not work properly with the plugin, so please disable the following settting: Video playback -> Resume video playback

FAQ:

1. I found some issues, had crashes or have suggestions, where can I inform the developer about them?

At lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/showtime.

Finally, below is a brief tutorial on how to log out from the Showtime Plugin YouTube from facanferff (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-log-out-showtime-plugin-youtube-2841/) for those interested:

Recently a user in IRC (EFNET, #showtime) asked how to log out from the current user in Youtube plugin for Showtime, so here is a tutorial for it. This method is only needed for versions 1.5 and up where it uses OAuth2 as the main authentication method. This method works for the standalone version.

The process is really simple and may be done via Multiman:

1. Go to the jsstore folder of showtime.

  • In PS3: /dev_hdd0/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/settings/jsstore
  • In Linux: /home//.hts/showtime/settings/jsstore

2. Delete the file called youtube-oauth2.

3. Open Showtime and it will no longer use your old user account, so you may authenticate again for another user account.

FAQ

1. Now every time I try to play a video, it fails with random errors, what is happening?

With the recent website changes featuring a new layout, the plugin is unable to play any video. A fix for it is being worked on and will be available once it is possible and it is confirmed to be stable. Sorry for this.

2. I found the plugin crash for some reason, what can I do?

The simplest answer is report it, you can either use lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/showtime/ or github.com/facanferff/showtime-plugin-youtube/issues. Please report any issue you encounter, if you don't I may not face it so I will not fix it by the simple aspect that I won't know about it.
