Thanks. Agreed, currently it is just reading all the <item> tags from the desistreams xml file which contains the feeds in alphabetical order... (i.e. first a list of Sports, then a list of Urdu, then Hindi etc) -the first item (youtube Geo News channel) is an exception
I will need to change code to respect the channel tags but haven't had the chance because we have been spending time on trying to add more channels.
This is never ending job.... and thats where these kind of addons fail because they require an ongoing maintenance. For this it will be easier to create a website that can be free hosting.. for example. "mysite.dynsite.com" etc and create a database of these links redirect your addon to that site and read xml file. Make couple of admins or give access to people who can add working channels to the list or will keep on updating the links. Otherwise it will keep on getting hard and hard for you to keep track of everything..
Here is an example from livestreams addon database website being used for updates... http://thestreamdb.com/
