Sponsored Links

Below are the changes, as follows:

  • Add: Support for OAuth2 instead of ClientLogin (see Note 1)
  • Add: Videos not available in user country are displayed in Orange
  • Add: Videos that are available in HD (720p and up) are identified like that in video listing
  • Add: Setting to list only videos that are HD
  • Add: Filter videos by duration (see Note 2)
  • Add: Show nickname of author of a video in video listing
  • Add: Show Likes percentage in video listing
  • Add: YouTube Transcribed Captions
  • Add: YouTube Automatic Speech Captions
  • Fix: Videos in HD/Full HD would give an error stating "CPU is too slow"
  • Fix: The plugin would try to get empty subtitles from Universal Subtitles
  • Fix: In some situations user actions would not appear despite being authenticated
  • Fix: Search was broken when background support was enabled
  • Fix: Playlist search would not show results
  • Fix: Browse Videos would give error
  • Fix: Force Reload Plugin (Shift+F5) would give several errors
  • Enhancement: Don't download some Cat files from YouTube for returning visitors

Note 1:

  • In April of 2012, YouTube deprecated the ClientLogin way to authenticate way, due to that this version includes the newest authentication method, it totally different but works really well. A tutorial showing how to authenticate will be released next to the plugin release, it will feature
    screenshots that will help you understand the process.
  • This method uses a computer with Internet connection to authorize the plugin, because of that, you don't need a keyboard to type anything in Showtime to login.
  • Additionaly, OAuth2 provides extra security since it doesn't save the actual credentials in HDD, only an access_token (temporary) and a refresh_token (to get a new access_token), no passwords involved.

Note 2:

  • This feature is only supported in search feeds, including Standard Feeds and Search Videos, in other feeds it will not filter

Installation:
1. Put the zip archive in [path.to.showtime]/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins OR
2. Put the zip archive in a PEN USB, insert in PS3, in Showtime search for the folder where you put the zip archive, click it and install.

Special thanks to Tyrant for Beta Testing this version and reporting some important problems.

FAQ:

1. In boxes to type text a keyboard doesn't show up, why?
Showtime doesn't support yet an OSK (On Screen Keyboard), you need to use an external keyboard.

2. Where can I suggest features and report problems with the plugins of facanferff?
At irc.efnet.net, channel #showtime.

Tutorial - Log In to Showtime Plugin YouTube 1.5 with OAuth2 (from facanferff via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-2307/):

You need to have:

  • Showtime Plugin YouTube 1.5: Showtime Plugin YouTube v1.5 - 720p / 1080p Playback Fixed and Many Improvements
  • Computer
  • Internet connection

The process of authenticating users in this method is simple, but for consumers it may still be confusing in some few points, because of that this tutorial will show you everything you need to authenticate correctly and use the plugin as an authenticated user.

1. Execute Showtime with Showtime Plugin YouTube 1.5 already installed.

2. Open the plugin, the first thing you should see is a message explaining the process (this tutorial but only in words). Note: Don’t close that message, otherwise you have to reopen the plugin and repeat this step.

3. Go to a computer with Internet support with the message of step 2 still open.

4. Go to the Web site specified in the message ( “Website: XXX” ), generally it is [Register or Login to view links]

5. It should show a page requesting a code, type in the box available the User Code that is displayed in the message ( “User Code: YYY” ) and click in the button on the page.

6. If the code you typed was correct, you should get to a page where it asks if you authorize the plugin to use your YouTube account. You need to accept it in order to use it in the plugin.

7. You should get now to a page confirming that you authorized the plugin and you should return to the device.

8. Return to the plugin and click in “OK”. If the process goes well, you should see now a last folder called “User Profile”. See it? If so, then congratulations, you’re authenticated and can use the plugin with your YouTube account.

FAQ:

1. What does that "Time limit" in message means?
It means you have only that time to do this process with the code, otherwise you'll have to repeat from step2.

2. After authenticating, if I exit Showtime and reopen it, will I be able to use my YouTube account?
Yes, you will. The plugin saves locally a token that uses to authenticate you at YouTube servers.

3. What if the token expires, may I still be able to use my YouTube account?
When a token expires, in the next request to the API the user makes, the plugin will automatically check if the token is expired and if so will refresh that token, getting a new fresh one, making you still be able to use your account, without having extra work.

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.
