How to Install/Update a Plugin in Showtime

There are 3 basic ways you can install or upgrade a plugin. (All this methods were tested using Showtime version 3.5.43 but should work in older versions )

1. Use the repository (if the plugin or the update version is already present), as demonstrated in this video (http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=6h8cc1&s=5)

2. Copy the timewaster.zip file to a USB pen drive, open Showtime, go to the USB pen drive icon and run Time Waster. The screenshots below should remove any doubts.

3. Copy the timewaster.zip file to using a file or FTP manager or whatever method you see fit.

Showtime plugin path (stand alone version): /dev_hdd0/game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins/

Showtime (Multiman version) plugin path: /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/st_settings/installedplugins/

Enjoy
NP

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.
