I've been thanking about porting over some plugins I wrote for a closed platform, and have come up with a few questions after skimming the docs:
1.) Am I allowed to create plugins for sites that offer links to content hosted without the consent of the copyright owner (will such a plugin survive the approval process)?
2.) Can Showtime handle dependencies (allowing me to dump all my video resolving code into one plugin package and call functions defined in it from another plugin)?
3.) What protocols are supported in Showtime (http, https, ftp, mms, rtmp(t)(e), etc)?
4.) Can I manipulate the headers used to request the video file (cookies, referrer, useragent, etc)?
