    andoma aka Andreas Öman has released the latest update to his test version of Showtime 4.0, this version is 4.1.99, here is a quote of the last few changes:



    Add support for setting custom movie titles directly from the item popup menu
    Fixes #1213


    Add an action in settings->general to clear the entire metadb item table.
    Safeguarded with a popup as it is a non-revocable action.
    Fixes #1218


    ps3: When seeking using L2/R2, rescale seek delta based on duration of feature
    In principle this make it so that the user can always seek from begining
    to end in ~2 seconds regardless of how long the currently playing media is.



    This is the current list of third party applications available in Showtime at the moment.

    To use a plugin in Showtime, just navigate to the jigsaw puzzle icon (found in the top navigation bar) on Showtime’s home screen and from there you can browse a list of all these plugins and also install them.

    Want to manage your DEX’s Blu-ray emulator hard dive, but hate that PS3Gen is missing
    essential features like increasing the number of game slots or dumping a game from a
    disk to a file? Worry no longer! The Open BDEMU HDD Manager is here for you!

    This tool duplicates PS3Gen’s ability to manage your BDEMU HDD, but works faster and
    has some added features.

    * Dump an existing game to an EMU image file
    * Write EMU image files to disk
    * Erase game slots
    * Rename games
    * Set the default game
    * Add/remove game slots (with smart HDD size detection)

    Note that this program was whipped up and tested with just one PC and just one hard
    drive, so it may not be perfect! It absolutely WON’T screw up any hard drives that
    aren’t BDEMU drives, though, so the worst that would happen is that you’d have to
    rewrite your games.


    Open BDEMU HDD Manager.7z

    Well it seems that deank has compiled Showtime to run on Dex machines, here is a quote from the source:

    * Install “Showtime 04.00.000 [DEX].pkg”
    * Start it from “TV/Video” column - it will return to XMB after initial processing (it will happen only the first time you start it after installation)
    * Start it again and enjoy andoma’s great work

    One of the biggest plugins of the Year for Showtime is Navi-X. With this plugin, the limit is your imagination.

    Astonishing, right? You never heard of Navi-X? No problem, there's a time for everything. To quote:
    "Navi-X is a 'content aggregator' app that provides access to all kinds of multimedia content, listed on a public directory of user contributed listings or playlists for playing on your TV or PC! Users can link to content and playback video, audio, pictures, podcasts, text, rss and html on the internet and share it with people around the world in seconds! Create fully customizable playlists with backgrounds, logos and icons as well as link to your favorite multimedia on the internet or browse the already existing directory of publicly available content, in one sleek, fast and unified application!"

    During the development time of the plugin, Tyrant was valuable, giving important feedback about what was correct and what was wrong. He knew already Navi-X and that allowed a faster development of the plugin. As of his experience with it, he says to new Navi-X users:
    "Navi-x is awesome once you get to know all the directories and content."
    And after Beta Testing the plugin, Tyrant states that "Navi-x is the one and only solution in Showtime PS3 to watch movies, livetv, pictures and listen to music! A must have!"

    You may ask, What are the features of the plugin? Here it is:

    - PLX Playlists
    - RSS Playlists
    - Flickr XML
    - Video/Processors:
    - If a processor fails (gives error different than "This processor is empty, nothing to do…") add an entry to a local store that must be sent to facanferff
    - TMDB For movies

    - Item Listing:
    - Display information about the date of an item
    - Display URL and Processor if available

    - User Account:
    - Enable/Disable Login Popup
    - Add Video/Playlist to Favorites
    - Remove from Favorites
    - Create Playlist
    - Add to Playlist
    - Enable/Disable Adult Content (in settings page)
    - Automatically add video to History playlist (if it already exists, moves it to top)
    - Set if new playlists should be private or public (History playlist is by default private and can't change in the plugin)

    - Search (needs external keyboard)

    Installation: Download the zip archive (Download) and put it in the normal place for plugins.
    Note: The plugin will be added soon to the repository once andoma can.

    1. Live Streams from playlists are supported in Showtime?
    Yes they are, but they should be in rtmp protocol, there is no support for mms or http live streaming in Showtime. You can watch even TV Channels added from other Navi-X user but I'll
    not tell you where, search Navi-X and you might find it.

    2. There are some sections that says "XBMC Only", I can't use them in Showtime?
    Some of them you can, those entries are labelled like that because the videos contained in those playlists are rtmp link, that XBMC supports while other platforms can't support,
    but Showtime supports it and you can use it as well, you're free to navigate these playlists.

    3. There are some sections that says "Boxee Only", I can't use them in Showtime?
    During development, I faced myself with some playlists labelled like these and some of them didn't work since the feature behind that makes the playlist only supportable for Boxee
    is the HTML support that Showtime can't support, you might try these playlists but most possibly the plugin will not be able to get you the playlist, in these cases you'll get an empty

    4. You talk about Processors in this plugin several time, what are they?
    Well to quote from http://www.navixtreme.com/:
    "The purpose of the processor is to function as an online plugin for Navi-X which produces media playback parameters for a single item,
    normally starting with only the URL of the web page which contains the item. In other words, if a web page has a flash player embedded in it,
    the processor teaches Navi-X how to emulate that site's flash player to get the media in the page to play in Showtime."

    5. When I logged in the first time to Navi-X server, was added some few playlists to my account what should I know about it?
    These created playlists pretend to make easier and better your experience in Navi-X plugin for Showtime. For your privacy, any playlist created by the plugin are saved as Private,
    it means only you can access those, if you want you might change it in navi-xtreme verified user media.
    Currently, these are the playlists created automatically by the plugin:
    - Favorites: Keeps a list of items that you marked as Favorite

    - History: List in which is added a video when you select a video to play and it starts playing, if it gives any error from the Processor part it will be discarded.
    NOTE: Video links that don't play too due to lack of support from Showtime are added too automatically (no way to check it in current Showtime's API)
    NOTE 2: If you play a video that was added already to the playlist History, the plugin will remove the one that exist and insert a new one on top of playlist,
    creating a fresh copy.

    6. What is the status of WatchTV plugin?
    With this new plugin, WatchTV plugin became obsoleted, there's no reason to use anymore the system that WatchTV provided, in this plugin you can watch too Live Streams normally and with
    the advantage of viewing those that were added by other users without having work of setting up a server or using a keyboard to enter a link.

    7. Where can I find facanferff to talk about Showtime?
    facanferff is sometimes in Efnet on channel #showtime, you might try to find him there. There will be there some other helpful people ready to assist you.

    8. How can I give feedback, suggest or report bugs?
    To report bugs you can create a ticket in the official bug tracking managed by facanferff and running in andoma's website (Navi-X - Overview - Home Theater System).

    REQUIRES Showtime 3.5.212 - Read FAQ please

    A new version for the Youtube plugin for Showtime is now available. It contains some few features many users requested while other features are always a good addition, let’s see the changelog so you may have an idea of what to find new in it:

    - Add: Show Feeds
    - Add: Sort feeds (published, relevance, views, rating, position, comments, duration and title)
    - Add: Filter Channel Feeds by Type
    - Add: Filter Show Feeds by Genre
    - Add: Filter Show Feeds by Region
    - Add: Filter Movie Feeds by Genre
    - Add: Filter Movie Feeds by Region
    - Add: Filter Standard Feeds by Hungary region
    - Add: Live Feeds
    - Add: Background support (can be enabled via Settings page)
    - Add: Set minimum resolution to play
    - Add: Filter Movie Feeds by Language
    - Enhancement: Only show free content in Movie Feeds
    - Enhancement: If it is not possible to get the original video link(s), try to get an error message
    - Enhancement: Use API version 2.1, it allows Google users that don’t have a Youtube channel to use some features of Youtube
    - Enhancement: Upon Youtube entrance show Login popup if setting enabled, if user does not authenticate there he will not have access to features exclusive for Youtube users
    - Enhancement: Show Message Alert when user uses an action (e.g. like a video, add to favorites, …)

    There are some points I want to inform you:
    1. Sort Feeds is only available in Video and Playlists feeds.
    2. Live Feeds include all feeds in Youtube API in this topic, but take note that Showtime doesn’t support YET HTTP Live Streaming, because of that, while you can navigate the feed called “Live Now” you’ll get error 400 when clicking to play. You may ask why I leave something not functional. Well, that’s a good question and the answer is quite simple too, the way Youtube plugin is built to get the video links, it works too for Live Streams, so we have the Live Streams links, only Showtime doesn’t support them at the moment. That means, that once Showtime starts supporting those links, there’s no need to release a new version, this will automatically be compatible, unless if Youtube makes crucial changes in the way videos work.
    3. The option “Lowest resolution” may be of great interest since with that you can automatically bypass video links in, for example, 240p or 360p and focus on the really good ones.
    4. This version restricts movies to free ones, the reason is simple, the plugin can’t make rentals so there’s no need to have those listed.

    Installation: Available in Repository, in Start Page of Showtime click the puzzle icon in top right, click Available, click Youtube, click Install, voilá! You have the plugin installed, quite simple yes? Now it’s time of the real fun!

    A special thanks to Tyrant for testing development builds.

    1. I get error ‘Your version of Showtime is outdated for this plugin. Look at Showtime Download for a new build of it.’, what I need to do?
    Simply follow the link to download the latest build of Showtime.

    2. Where can I find facanferff?
    He is available some times a day in IRC, EFNet, channel #showtime. There you can find helpful people that will be able to assist you, including the creator of Showtime, andoma.

    3. Where can I report bugs and suggest features?
    Coming soon. (Will be updated when it is available)

    4. There’s a way to support the developer?

    Andoma has once again updated his awesome PS3 application Showtime, Showtime is without a doubt, the best piece of home-brew software on the PS3 and guess what, he isn’t charging anyone to use it, it is all completely free, here is a a quote from the Change Log, take note, this is not an official release my andoma, but part of the 3.5 test model:


    Add support for continuous playback of all video items in a directory
    This needs to be enabled in the video playback settings (default off)
    Fixes #501
    Fixed #530
    Fixes #864
    Fixes #875


    Write logfiles to disk (in cachedir).
    These logfiles can be obtained from


    ps3: Switch memory allocator to TLSF
    This is another attempt to fix the out of memory issues that has
    been plauging Showtime for quite some while.
    So far it looks much better than when using jemalloc


    ps3: Fix DVD playback
    Showtime should now be able to play back both ISO files and
    VIDEO_TS DVD folders.
    Fixes #507
    Fixes #921

    A while ago, a pre release of showtime v.3.4 was released, now the developer has been kind enough to provide us with Showtime v.3.4. A few quick notes:

    Today marks the release of Showtime 3.4. For a list of most of the important bug fixes and features added, see the 3.4 page.

    Download the release from github.

    Note: It seems Showtime still suffers from out of memory conditions now and then but I’ve not been able to pinpoint the exact cause of those issues. A few things were implemented just prior to the 3.4 release in order to mitigate the low memory problems.

    With that said I though I could write something about what’s been done this year and where Showtime is going.

    And a Full changelog:

    • Bug #216: Image navigator - missing rotation of previews
    • Bug #448: Photo - Doesn’t display .jpg over 900ko

    deank, has been working hard lately, even more than normal lately, due to PS1 backups running, today he released version 02.09.00 of his awesome application, here is a quote from the change log:

    * Improved performance in XMMB display mode
    * Backup from PS3 game discs now works as it should
    * You can still launch PSX games from XMMB Game Column
    * You can still launch PS3 game backups from DVD-R/RW / BD-R/RE
    * You cannot create ISO backups or access non-genuine PS3 game discs (unless Direct Disc Access is enabled)
    * You will see an animated icon in XMMB Game column, which you can use to launch your PSX backups.
    * To keep the same functionality as before you can turn on “Direct Disc Access” from XMMB Settings column.
    >>> Press [TRIANGLE] -> Enable Direct Disc Access
    >>> When in Direct Disc Access mode you can rip BD movie discs, launch games, but you can’t create backups of PS3 Game Discs.
    >>> Do not use “Direct Disc Access Mode” unless you really need it.
