November 28, 2012 // 7:01 pm - Following up on the previous release, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer facanferff has made available a Showtime PS3 Plugin TMDB (The Movie DataBase) followed by TMDb v1.1 alongside an Oceanus Skin Plugin for Showtime v04.01+ (CEX) with details below.

Download: XMB Install Package: Showtime (Standalone) / XMB Install Package: Showtime (multiMAN Edition)

From his blog, to quote: Showtime Plugin TMDB released!

That's right! We're again at that time a new release comes to Showtime and this time is the newest plugin for TMDB, featuring a different experience from anything you could find before in Showtime.

TMDB Updates:

1. Home Screen
2. Movie View
3. Person View
4. See more
5. Authentication, easy to follow instructions on screen
6. User Profile
7. Loading screen, should reduce potencial crashes

I hope you enjoy this release, so now the instruction to get it: First of all, it requires Showtime 4.1 at least.

Method 1 (both standalone and multiMan embedded Showtime):


Put zip archive at dev_hdd0/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins or if you use Showtime through multiMAN

Put the zip archive in: dev_hdd0/game/BLES080608/USRDIR/sys/st4_settings/installedplugins/

Method 2 (only for standalone Showtime, thanks wizzkidd):

Download: or

Install the pkg normally.

Method 3 multiMAN edition PKG:


Special thanks:

  • andoma: for creating Showtime
  • Tyrant: for beta testing the plugin

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