  • Add: Filter Standard Feed by region (in Settings page)
  • Add: Support for Watch History playlist in Advanced Mode
  • Add: Filter for Video format (All formats, MP4, WebM or FLV) in Advanced Mode
  • Add: Set maximum resolution to play
  • Enhancement: Use default Showtime's error page instead of messages
  • Enhancement: Item listing show more information now (title, duration, views count, favorites count and when it was published / updated)
  • Enhancement: Full support for Safe Search
  • Fix: Universal Subtitles support was not working since a minor layout change of the Web site

Note: This update is fully compatible with latest updates of plugins of NP (in Youtube's calls)

As always any suggestion or feedback are welcome.


1. Where do I must install these plugins?
Put the the zip file from the download link above at /dev_hdd0/game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/settings/installedplugins.

2. I don't have an external keyboard, how can I log in or search for videos?
While OSK (On Screen Keyboard) is not implemented in Showtime, you can't. If you're in this situation, I suggest you to disable User Authentication and User actions, so you don't see anymore boxes to write things.

3. My connection is very slow, there's no way to automatically use a lower resolution?
Yes there is, since version 1.3, Youtube plugin has a setting that let's you choose a maximum resolution, the resolution you get in simple mode is that one you selected or, if you're using Advanced Mode, you'll only get a list of video links of that resolution and lower (never higher). The default setting value is 1080p.

4. In few times (or more) I get a page saying that an error happened, what can I do?
If that page appears then please let me know by e-mailing me ( AT or creating a ticket on andoma's redmine website for showtime assigning the ticket to my name (Fabio Ferreira).

5. I have a suggestion, where can I leave that?
You can e-mail me on AT

Hope you enjoy,

If it freezes when you watching a movie, you could try to replace showtime.self. From a different working showtime, find the showtime.self.

Once you got that, go to dev_hdd0/game/bles80608/USRDIR and copy it over the non-working one. Or you could update to habib 4.66.
