I started work on a script for this last night, and I have come quite far.
Right now I have the TVLinks.co.uk site fully navigable, and support for playing any of the videos that are in divx(stage6) or flv(youtube, veoh, tudou, ect) whwich I think covers at least 80% of the videos from what I've seen.
All that I have left to do before my first release is to fix a few minor bugs and add support for the links that point to swfs, iframes, and similar.
Expect the release by the end of this coming week, probably within the next few days though.

glad to hear someone has made progress on this. I just spent a couple hours going thru the joox.net script and trying to see how hard it would be to modify for tv-links. The problem I ran into was finding the address for the videos on the hosted site. The tv-links urls are based on category/show/id type scheme but how does this relate to the external links? I'd be really interested if you could explain how you figured that out.

Definatly thanks for the work on this script. I have tried to no avail I could not get it to work properly. I look forward to this script. Thanks again.

Anyone have any more progress reports for the script?

Nope... I really wish pvtschlag would at least come back to answer my question about resolving the external links. If I could get that done I don't think I would have to much trouble putting a script together myself. Can anyone else here figure out how tv-links indexes the hosted videos? I looked through the page source quite a bit but can't pull anything from it.

if this helps here is an xml of tv-links http://www.nettwo.ca/xml/tv-links.xml

Well that is pretty nice but doesn't get me much further. I'm at work right now so I cant try this, but can anyone play a stream on their xbox using the following link - tv-links.co.uk/link.do/1/267/676/10744/18220 ? (as in make a text file with it and try and play the text file). If that works then this should be easy, but I am pretty sure I need the direct URL of the stream, not the tv-links URL, to get it to play.

Just tried it doesnt work. I'm talking with someone now who is telling me how to scrape url's from tv-links I'll get back to ya.
