Bug Description

Now the new Video Lens sources in Precise are:
"YouTube Movies", "TED Talks", "\u641c\u72d0", "RTVE", "Encuentro", "3sat Mediathek", "YouTube Education", "VODO", "Crunchyroll", "SCI-FI-LONDON", "YouTube Shows", "Vimeo", "Bing Video", "Dailymotion"

They seems to be fetched from here:
http://video.u1.to/v0/sources

It should be really nice to provide a way to customize those sources in a localized ISO, like radios in Rhythmbox using ubuntu-defaults-builder
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-defaults-builder

summary: - Allow the Video Lens sources customization
+ Allow a Video Lens sources customization in localized ISOs

It's currently hardcoded in /usr/lib/unity-scope-video-remote/unity-scope-video-remote

It should check a file first (which ubuntu-defaults-* supplies) and fall back to the hardcoded value if no file exists.

Martin, it's not hardcoded, the list of sources is currently provided by http://videosearch.ubuntu.com/v0/sources , based on your IP geolocation.
I agree that it should be handled better, probably by matching these sources to a list of potential translated strings. Or server side.

I'm adding Candiru (the server project) to the bug report.

For the lokalised Dutch(NL) ISO we are looking for something like this as
well. Now we have custom radio stations, bookmarks, etc.

At the moment I wrote a custom lens[1] to search Dutch TV programs. I
presume we definitely need custom code, because each dutch website has its
own format of presenting the search results. So for each website I wrote
custom Python code to parse the results.

I'm not sure if I fully understand this issue. If this functionality will
become available , can we (the Dutchies) can make use of this as well? Or
do you recommend to keep our custom package for a lens, or scope?

If you find interesting sources providing an API, you should open a bug on the Candiru project (https://bugs.launchpad.net/candiru) to ask for it. It could become included by default for everyone, or depending on your geolocation.

You could also turn the lens into a scope for the video lens and make it available in the Software Center. If you need any help with it, I'll be happy to provide some.

I don't think the video lens still makes sense in the next context with Unity8 or that I will take time to work on this. please feel free if anyone is interesting into it to have a look :)
