just FYI, these are 2 seperate quotes from danfred
"These XML files source their data from theStreamDB.com ("an open database for live streaming media"). The site verifies the status of all it's streams hourly... so the above XML files on community-links will also be updated hourly. Available streams will show a "+" sign prefix if they have been confirmed available within the past hour.. if a stream is unavailable, it will show how long the stream has been unavailable (hours/days)."
"Just goto thestreamdb.com and click on "add stream"... it will present you with an option to "sign up" for a new account if you're not already signed in.
There are a few others continuing to add new streams daily. Today I added 58 new streams myself (mostly Chinese). Any streams you add or update will be automatically tested and available on community-links within 1-2 hours.
To update any existing streams... click the "edit mode" button and then click on any number of streams to quickly update their links. The site was built in such a way that the stream links can be updated very easily (to encourage people to keep them updated!)
If you or anyone else has any issues using the site please send me a PM.
so unless the page is completely abandoned, people are adding to it and it is tested all the time, the addon grabs from this and shows how long ago it was last tested live. I am not saying it is perfect but it is alot of work already done.
The other possibility is that I am completely wrong and typing without any knowledge on the subject. If this is the case I am sorry, I just was trying to help take the load off by showing what is already there. However if I am correct, all that needs to be done is add to the database instead of writing all the code to change the addon.
Thank you as always
