I have written a new channel called Webisodes. It is a channel to hold your favorite web series from different sources on the Internet. It will work with YouTube playlist and user uploads, Vimeo shows, Daily Motion shows, Live HLS feeds, and RSS Feeds (as long as there is an existing Plex URL service or there are links to the video files on the feed page). I have added two shows from each source by default, just to show you how the program works. It allows you delete shows and add a new show with just the URL address.
The channel is available through the Unsupported Appstore V2
Or it can be manually downloaded from the Github site at https://github.com/shopgirl284/Webisodes.bundle
PLEASE READ THE FULL INSTRUCTIONS FOR CORRECT URL FORMAT FOR ADDING SHOWS. I have included these instructions in the user entry instructions text file in the Contents folder and the README file on GitHub. I will also post these instructions in a separate post below.
UPDATES AND CHANGES

1/28/2016 - Removed references to Websites that no longer exists or are otherwise defunct like Yahoo Screens and BlipTV
8/11/2015 - Updated support for YouTube Section. Since YouTube v2 API support for playlist no longer works, users, channels, and playlists are produced as a list of playlists that then show a list of the first two pages of videos results for each playlists.
Know Client Issues and Limitations:
Adding new items to this channel requires using a Plex player app that supports user input from Plex channels. The Plex player apps for Roku supports user input and the Remoku can be helpful in entering URLs
Plex/Web (aka Media Manager) -
Because Plex/Web pulls from the cache and only updates once a day, unless you clear the cache of your web browser, changes you make to the Webisode channel will not show up for up to 24 hrs.
You can copy and paste the url address of a new show you would like to add into the search box at the top of the screen to add the channel. You must be within the directory for the type of show you would like to add. For example if you opened of the YouTube directory which shows all of your currently installed YouTube shows, then you can paste the url of the new feed you would like to add in the search box of that page. A dialog box will appear and tell you that the show has been added.
