As always any suggestion or feedback are welcome.
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

“Oceanus was the Titan of Water. When I started creating the skin I always wanted to create something that would be enjoyable, flexible and that would expand Showtime experience in new ways and Oceanus is all about that.” -Facanferff

This new skin really makes the user experience much more enjoyable and it also takes the Showtime plugins to a whole new level!
