Great idea! I'm currently using a variety of userscripts for this e.g.:

- but I'd prefer a unified solution.

Glancing at the code, it looks like you've spent a fair bit of time (re-)creating scraper plugins for various sites. Have you thought of using the Navi-X scrapers? [1][2] They function like a web service that translates a web page URI into the URI of its streamable media file. It should be possible to extract/repurpose their NIPL interpreter code. [3]

Alternatively, you might be able to build your server as a layer on top of Navi-X or as a standalone app that delegates to it.

Hey, don't get offended Smile I didn't mean it in the commercial way ..
Anyway - have you ever checked out Navi-X ? They've been using the same principle (a list of url processors for content hosting providers) for years now, and have a pretty large database of them. What they did very providently was to maintain them online and not locally as you do thus having to update them in a single location when something changes.

This URL pattern is new, use megavideo.com/v/ instead. I will add this pattern in next release

I've been looking for such a 'push' service for a long time. Works great, though I've been playing with it only for a short time. I do have a couple of suggestions though:
- The (firefox) extension is active on all domains, meaning I am able to 'fling' any URL, say http://www.google.com, to the ATV2, where it quietly dies without any error. You might want to send to the service only domains you can support (parse & play)
- Can PlayIt be added to the context menu for URLs, so I don't have to go the actualy video page, but just right-click on the URL and 'fling' it?

Thanks, all your good work is appreciated.
