Showtime TV: WatchTV and GameTrailers PS3 Homebrew Arrives


140w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer facanferff has made available Showtime TV: WatchTV and GameTrailers for PS3 homebrew fans.

Download: Showtime TV: WatchTV and GameTrailers for PS3 / Showtime + WatchTV 3.41 PKG by CloneD / Guide / GIT

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:


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


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:

Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer facanferff has made available an update to the Showtime PS3 Plugin TMDB (The Movie DataBase) bringing it to version 1.2.5 followed by v1.3 with the changes below.

To quote: A new version for Showtime Plugin TMDb is now available and adds some features that many users have been asking since day 1.

Please read carefully the changelog and the Important information section as both help you get a better experience in Showtime.

Changelog:

  • Add: View Collection images option in movie view
  • Add: View images option in movie view
  • Add: "Search in Showtime" option in movie view (thanks Buksa)
  • Enhancement: Improve some design aspects (makes images fit better for different screens)
  • Enhancement: In "Director" field in movie view show all directors instead of just one
  • Add: TMDb item menu option (it allows users to see a movie view from any video, including offline videos or anything else)

Thanks:

  • andoma: for creating and maintaining Showtime
  • Tyrant: for Beta Testing my plugins
  • Buksa: for giving me the idea to add a Search in Showtime option

Installation:

From plugin central inside Showtime you can download and install the plugin.

Important information:

  • To use TMDb item menu option you need at least Showtime v4.3.261.
  • If you have Custom Background by Andreas Oman installed you can use the View images/View Collection images to set as main Showtime background a fanart of a movie (in above screenshots, the background was set using this feature, choosing this image: d3gtl9l2a4fn1j.cloudfront.net/t/p/original/wz1h8VPa8DsofvKvu4mFsktUqfl.jpg)
  • It may be confusing for some users since a few time ago I said I would not work more in Showtime Plugins, I thought better and decided to make some changes that make me able to continue working in Showtime Plugins, later I'll talk more about it.

Update: A new update to Showtime Plugin TMDb v1.3 is now available. Finding free time has been extremely hard (studying is hard ) so this is what I have to give you right now to enjoy, more features are being prepared by due to time I don't know when will they be ready.

Changelog version 1.3:

  • Add: Setting to allow show all movies found in a search from item menu
  • Add: Search for movie by custom title in item menu
  • Add: Add movies to a list

Note: For now you have to create manually a list in themoviedb.org website. I tried to add this but right now there seems to be some problem with TMDb API so it isn't included for now.

Installation: Download at Showtime Plugin Central (Apps) inside Showtime
Requirements: Showtime v4.1
