  • Login to Youtube
  • Standard Feeds (complete)
  • Channel Feeds (complete)
  • Movie Feeds (not supporting yet paid content)
  • Trailer Feeds (complete)
  • User Feeds (Favorites, New subscriptions, Contacts, etc.)

    safeSearch
  • Limit entries per request (to avoid for a bigger time memory fullness)

Note: To search for a video/channel/playlist, you have to write with an EXTERNAL keyboard what you want in the box on Showtime’s homepage (with a magnifying glass icon).

The plugin does not handle how a video is played, it is the work of Showtime, if in the middle of the video playback it fails, the audio is synched off or other, please report it to andoma.

If by any reason when navigating feeds, your ps3 crashes it is because the memory of ps3 is extremely limited, and because of that navigating extremely fast will crash Showtme itself. There have been efforts to improve the plugin since the Beta version was released so it wouldn’t need so much memory.

MKV DOES in fact play, the resolution and video quality itself is near perfect, if not perfect. But the rendering speed is quite slow, and the audio goes faster than the video causing it to go out of sync immediately. Also, subtitles are not supported.
