FAQ

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 (facanferff.showtime AT hotmail.com) 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 facanferff.showtime AT hotmail.com

Hope you enjoy,
facanferff

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.
