FAQ

1. Where do I must install these plugins?
Put the the zip file from the download link above at /dev_hdd0/game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins.

2. I don't have an external keyboard, how can I log in or search for videos?
While OSK (On Screen Keyboard) is not implemented in Showtime, you can't. If you're in this situation, I suggest you to disable User Authentication and User actions, so you don't see anymore boxes to write things.

3. My connection is very slow, there's no way to automatically use a lower resolution?
Yes there is, since version 1.3, Youtube plugin has a setting that let's you choose a maximum resolution, the resolution you get in simple mode is that one you selected or, if you're using Advanced Mode, you'll only get a list of video links of that resolution and lower (never higher). The default setting value is 1080p.

4. In few times (or more) I get a page saying that an error happened, what can I do?
If that page appears then please let me know by e-mailing me (facanferff.showtime AT hotmail.com) or creating a ticket on andoma's redmine website for showtime assigning the ticket to my name (Fabio Ferreira).

5. I have a suggestion, where can I leave that?
You can e-mail me on facanferff.showtime AT hotmail.com

Hope you enjoy,
facanferff

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.

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.
