December 17, 2011 // 9:06 pm - This weekend PlayStation 3 developer facanferff has released Khan Academy v1.0 and YouTube v1.2.5 (which includes subtitle support) Plugin updates for the Showtime PS3 Media Player homebrew application.

Download: Showtime PS3 Khan Academy v1.0 Plugin / Showtime PS3 YouTube v1.2.5 Plugin

To quote: The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit educational organization, created in 2006 by Bangladeshi American educator Salman Khan, a graduate of MIT.

With the stated mission of "providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere", the Web site supplies a free online collection of more than 2,700 micro lectures via video tutorials teaching Mathematics, History, Healthcare & Medicine, Finance, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy, Economics, Cosmology and Computer Science.

With this plugin, learning advanced Math is easier than ever it was. And you can choose too a language as subtitle.

Note: Thanks to GPatel for the logo.

YouTube v1.2.5: This is a minor update to Youtube, but the new feature is one that I think is one of interest to many users, with it you can, for example, watch a music video and in real time read the lyrics of the song on the screen.

Changelog:

  • Add: Subtitles support (via Universal Subtitles) (you need to activate the setting for it, see last photo)
  • Enhancement: Unescape two times titles because some of them are double escaped
  • Fix: Some videos would not get the video id correctly from playlists

FAQ

1. Where do I must install these plugins?

Put the the zip files from the download links above at /dev_hdd0/game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins.

2. No virtual keyboard support?

At the moment that is not possible, maybe in future.

Yes, I was. I wonder if the Ps3 will ever have naything as good as XBMC was on the original xbox. Those were the days.

Yes, but I don't see how that helps native PS3 playback. I assume you're talking about transcoding.

This is a welcome addition to the homebrew library. Would it be possible to add support for a codecs folder (ala XBMC)? Anyway, thanks andoma!

low res mkv files will work but more optimisation is needed before it's a real alternative to the inbuilt video player. great work in progress though.
