Yeah the webscraper is limited to youtube, for a series of reasons. One is to focus on users curating content rather then just self-promotion. youtube as censor against child porn ect.. is another. There is close to an infinite amount of videos available on youtube, we just need methods outside of popularity to sort through it all. So this simple taging system creates a loose narrative between often dis-similar videos. 
	I would love to expand it more but we've a surprisingly hard time running realtime streaming through building playlists using open source software. We had to modify a lot of components to get it to work in manner that all on-demand does yet stream like ustream does. Because of the possible copyright infringement we had to build our own platform. Please hit me off list about the playlist you build it sounds really interesting and would be lovely mod if the rendering can happen offline. 
	All the best. -splnlss
