Sponsored Links
119w ago - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer facanferff has updated the YouTube Plugin to version 1.5 for Showtime PS3 Media Player which fixes 720p / 1080p playback and more as outlined below!

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view 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.

Below is Showtime 4.1.368 for PS3 CEX and DEX from Andreas Oman which has been compiled by deank who states the following:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (5.62 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (5.69 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (5.60 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (5.67 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

I compiled it with my changes and it should be ok with mM 04.18.00. Also I decreased the size of the pkg/self with 1MB. Showtime 04.01.386a is compiled with my changes as always. Also the size of the pkg/self is decreased with another 20KB.

  • You can update your Showtime for multiMAN from within multiMAN via the Video column (select showtime, press Triangle and then Update)
  • Showtime 04.01.368 [CEX].pkg standalone is available in the WEB column, too.

Hello, I'm using Showtime to read video files stored on an "UPnP Media Server" via WiFi connection. Sometimes with big MKV files, WiFi is too slow (or connection is too bad) and video is lagging. Is there any way to copy the video file before reading it. In others words, can I copy file from Media Server (or network drive) to PS3 HDD. Thanks for help.

Edit: Perhaps Comgenie's Awesome Filemanager or Multiman can do this kind of copy but I did not manage?

Sorry for the double post, but I can no more edit it...
