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:

[Register or Login to view code]


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)

Following up on all their previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Andreas Oman released Showtime PS3 Media Center v4.8 Stable Build for PlayStation 3 with some updates and the changes outlined below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (7.50 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) by deank

To quote: Showtime 4.8 released

Finally time for a new release just before 2014 ends. In total 183 issues have been filed and fixed (showtimemediacenter.com/versions/60)

Major changes

  • Add support for streaming directly from bittorrent peer-to-peer network.
  • Improved HLS streamer, in particular better support for live streams and quicker adaption between bitrates.
  • New javascript engine for plugins (duktape.org) which is actively maintained and offers much better support than Spidermonkey. Spidermonkey is now deprecated and will be removed for 5.0 so plugin authors are urged to port their plugins.
  • Major rewrite of user interface rendering code. This is a preparation for Showtime 5.0 which will sport a new user interface.

Minor changes

  • It's now possible to turn off automatic browsing of archives (ZIP and RAR) as folders.
  • It's now possible to configure the amount of time Showtime skips when seeking backward and forwards. Settings available in settings -> video playback.
  • Since February 2014 (Showtime version 4.5.108), clearing metadata does not erase playcount, resume point, etc. Update the 'Clear metadata...' -warning text to reflect this.
  • Improve metadata lookup speed when using external sources such as themoviedb.org, etc.
  • Add support for video panning during playback.

Improve User Interface when streaming from Tvheadend:

  • Added show description and name of next show to TV playdeck.
  • If a channel has an icon, display that instead of Display.png in list view.
  • Added tv show description to iteminfo view.
  • Sort channels based on channelNumber set in Tvheadend's user interface.

PS3 specific

  • Fix interlaced h264 playback
  • Display HDD utilization in sysinfo overlay

Raspberry Pi specific

  • Fix broken AV sync when streaming from Tvheadend

Finally, from deank comes Showtime for multiMAN v4.09.021 with the following notes:

Save the downloaded file as: /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/SHOWTIME.SELF

  • Added: XMB videos and last folder visible in Showtime
  • Added: Return to multiMAN when using the EXIT icon in to top right corner of main Showtime Interface

Since version 02.05.00 of multiMAN you can update your SHOWTIME within multiMAN, by going to XMMB Video tab -> Press [TRIANGLE] while "Start Showtime" is selected -> Update.

You can also update your showtime.self by deleting it from multiMAN's USRDIR folder and play a video - you'll be prompted to download the updated version. Be advised that in multiMAN versions 04.00.00+ SHOWTIME.SELF is located under USRDIR/sys folder.

NOTE FOR DEX PS3 USERS:

You have to install the official CEX/CFW standalone version of Showtime [DEX] BEFORE starting multiMAN DEX for the first time.
