One of the easiest ways to get started with DeliTV is to use it to watch video feed subscription from YouTube.
With DeliTV, you can bookmark the following sorts of Youtube content and then view it in a DeliTV Channel:
|Bookmarked YouTube page||Resulting DeliTV subscription|
e.g Teachers’ TV channel
|Recently uploaded videos for that user|
|Playlist page e.g T151: 3D Geo-World Demos||Playlist feed|
|Video page e.g The Machine is Us/ing Us (Final Version)||Single video|
|[NEW] Search results page e.g Search for “formula one”||Search results containing 20 most relevant videos|
Here is the example channel bookmarked to a demo DeliTV channel guide: delitv_ytdemo:
(You can of course grab a copy of any of these bookmarks into your own delicious account.)
We can now bookmark this channel guide so that it appears in a DeliTV multiplex. In the following example, I’m bookmarking it to my main delitv feed, and also to the boxeetest5 multiplex.
Here’s the result in my boxeetest5 feed:
And here’s a view of the delitv_ytdemo channel guide:
This is what the bookmarked user/channel produces – the recent uploads listing for that user/channel:
And here’s the playlist guide:
Remember, with DeliTV you don’t need to bookmark the actual Youtbe feed – just bookmark the user/channel, playlist or video page to Delicious, and DeliTV will do the rest for you…

PS a new feature, currently in testing, lets you bookmark a search results page. Whilst it is possible to generate searches for playlist or users/channels as well as videos, DeliTV currently returns just the 20 most relevant Youtube videos when a Youtube search results page is bookamarked.
