The Young Turks is an online news program. They now have a 24/hr live stream and they upload all of their segments to YouTube. They also have a number of shows associated with the TYT network. I was hoping someone could create a TYT Network add-on for XBMC similar to the TWiT add-on (http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:TWiT).

Ideally, the add-on would allow access to the TYT live stream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2CKDRQBUsI), the main videos (http://www.youtube.com/tyt), and the other shows on the network like:

TYT University: http://www.youtube.com/tytuniversity
What the Flick: http://www.youtube.com/user/whattheflickshow
The David Pakman Show: http://www.youtube.com/user/MidweekPolitics
NerdAlert: http://www.youtube.com/user/NerdAlert

There are other shows, but those are the ones I watch mostly.

Everything is hosted on YouTube, but the XBMC YouTube player isn't working for the live stream (at least for me... and I haven't been able to get any help about it in the release thread... every other live stream works just fine. Just not TYT) and it doesn't allow for any kind of folder/organization, so everything gets mixed up with my other subscriptions. But because everything is on YouTube, I wouldn't think this would be super difficult, but I really don't have the technical expertise to know.

Just thought it would be a good idea. Hopefully I'm not the only one out there who loves this network!
