EtherTV: video playlist editor

At the beginning of this year, I had an idea for a web site that would allow you to string together videos from other sites to make video mix-tapes. I've called it EtherTV, and it's located at http://www.ethertvtuner.com/ (similar to my streaming radio station aggregator RadioWave at http://radiowavetuner.com/). Basic information, along with any updates, can be found on my public wiki here.

EtherTV allows you to create and share streaming video stations by aggregating videos from web sites like YouTube. Each station broadcasts the videos in a fixed order then repeats when all videos have been shown. Like broadcast television, anyone watching a station at a specific time will watch the same video, at the same location, as anyone else who is watching. However, viewers can choose to skip to any other video in the station any time they like. Viewers can also easily return to the current location in the broadcast.

It's light on features right now, but I'll be continuing work on it to slowly implement my feature list. If you find it useful, recommendations are welcome.
