To quote: With this talk and before you download Showtime + WatchTV + Channel9 + GameTrailers, you have to know how this system works.

1. Extract the folder called list from the archive to any place of your computer

2. Upload it to a website that you have or wait for a known person to you do it (the folder list must not be changed, the name should be this and only this)

3. Install the pkg provided in the package

4. Go to Showtime's Settings

5. Enable WatchTV plugin, enable too the option called "Check for new versions" (this searchs for new versions of the plugin each time you open WatchTV, it is a very useful option to enable) and below that option is one called "Remote website" there you enter the full name of your website till the folder list you uploaded to that website.

For example:

Imagine you have uploaded the full path of list folder is this:

[Register or Login to view code]


You have to write with a keyboard in that option the following:

[Register or Login to view code]


Note: You have to include "http://" (without double quotes) for it to work otherwise you get an error

6. Go to WatchTV plugin and you should have three folders called:

  • All Channels
  • Genres
  • Country

What's do each one?

All Channels: Searchs all the files of the list folder supported and shows every channel in it, as a big list

Genres: Here you can choose a genre, for example if you choose Entertainment, it will show you the channels included in the list-entertainment.xml file

Country: Same thing as Genres, but it will only show to you the channels of the selected country
That's it, you made it and you have WatchTV working.

For Devs and people that know XML: If you want to add your own streams to it, add the folowing lines:

Do you see what's between /description and /channel that's what you have to add each time you want to add a channel.

FAQ:

1. I don't want to upload the folder to a website, instead of that I have a website that uses your folder, what I have to do?

If this is your case, you may bypass steps 1 and 2, and start by installing directly the pkg, once there, in the option "Remote website" write that website as specified in step 5.

2. The genres list should have more genres, what can I do for it?

Contact me so i can add that genre.

3. The country list is incomplete it needs more countries, what can I do for it?

Contact me so i can add that country.

Finally, facanferff is also working on a YouTube plugin for Showtime, with details as follows:

Current Features:

  • Login to Youtube
  • Standard feeds (complete)
  • Movie Feeds (not supporting yet paid content)

Today Andreas Oman has updated his Showtime Media Player HTPC port for the PS3. The new release now includes 1080p playback at a constant speed and unconfirmed DVD playback.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: I've hooked up Showtime to the video decoder libraries already present on the PS3. This will accelerate h264 (Up to level 4.2) and MPEG2 video decoding so it can play up to 1080p content.

If you want to make sure that the Cell acceleration is actually used you can press L3 during video playback to see the status window. Make sure that the video codec mentions (Cell) at the end of the row. Just like in this screenshot.

You're welcome!

Features:

1. Playback of video and audio
2. Javascript plugins
3. Unified search
4. View photos and images in slideshow mode
5. Live TV streaming from Tvheadend
6. Spotify integration

Man, I really wanted to try this, but it doesn't install on my f.w 3.15 machine. I wish more developers wouldn't forget us who still use Other OS linux and therefore still run f.w 3.15 until someone enables OtherOs on higher or cfw. I have the same problem with Multiman, having to run the older v.1.12 instead of v.1.16 which is FAR better! sigh.. keep waiting i guess, i'm not giving up my YDL Zerogame emulator..

This is extremely impressive. This is the main reason I have jailbreaked my PS3. Once this has been fully optimized for the PS3 I will be in heaven. Thanks so much.
