    • When testing, my Beta Tester (El Tyrant) found that the resume videos of Showtime does not work properly with the plugin, so please disable the following settting: Video playback -> Resume video playback


    1. I found some issues, had crashes or have suggestions, where can I inform the developer about them?


    Finally, below is a brief tutorial on how to log out from the Showtime Plugin YouTube from facanferff (via for those interested:

    Recently a user in IRC (EFNET, #showtime) asked how to log out from the current user in Youtube plugin for Showtime, so here is a tutorial for it. This method is only needed for versions 1.5 and up where it uses OAuth2 as the main authentication method. This method works for the standalone version.

    The process is really simple and may be done via Multiman:

    1. Go to the jsstore folder of showtime.
    • In PS3: /dev_hdd0/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/settings/jsstore
    • In Linux: /home/<user>/.hts/showtime/settings/jsstore

    2. Delete the file called youtube-oauth2.

    3. Open Showtime and it will no longer use your old user account, so you may authenticate again for another user account.


    1. Now every time I try to play a video, it fails with random errors, what is happening?

    With the recent website changes featuring a new layout, the plugin is unable to play any video. A fix for it is being worked on and will be available once it is possible and it is confirmed to be stable. Sorry for this.

    2. I found the plugin crash for some reason, what can I do?

    The simplest answer is report it, you can either use or Please report any issue you encounter, if you don't I may not face it so I will not fix it by the simple aspect that I won't know about it.

    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...

    I always have issues with Showtime. Some upgrades ago I lost the tiled view and I got the list view with no icons for everything, besides all the channels I pinned down in the home page disappeared.

    This last update was great at first, I received a notification for a new version from inside the application, it downloaded and installed fine and all the bugs went away: the change views option returned and I got the lost channels back.

    It is an excellent version... but after close it, every time I try to launch Showtime again I receive an error message. It runs fine from inside Multiman. I will try to delete it an reinstall it from scratch.
