Recently, finding the time to work on tubecast has been just as difficult as my hunt for good quality programming on Channel Five (if you’re in the UK, you’ll share my pain). Though after applying a little elbow-grease, this weekend, I’ve reached a stage where I can begin demonstrating the TV app (albeit a very simple single channel demonstration).
It’s progressively downloading and showing videos direct from YouTube. At the moment it is running from a database-driven custom playlist of YouTube videos of which I’ve added manually. In essence what we have is a single channel which runs continuously without repeat for x number of clips (x is currently set to 10). You can view this now on http://www.tubecast.tv/ (although this link will be constantly updated). Here is a screenshot… it even has a (bad looking) DOG!
