Probably not impossible, but unlikely to be very useful. There are several reasons why:
1. It's built in python and wdlxtv doesn't have python support
2. It's difficult to find a suitable format to pipe into wdtv's playback engine. Especially for streams! The playback engine likes to work with files of known size and likes to be able to seek to the begining and end of said files.
3. All streaming experiments so far had to use ffmpeg for transcoding, and this meant a severe performance penalty (<15fps playback)

Thanks Mad_ady for the prompt response. Actually i need to play this youtube live link in wdtv but not able to find a working solution.

Well, getting the actual stream url may not be that difficult, but i'm worried the wdtv will not be able to play it. DjArty knows a lot about streaming on the wdtv. You can ask him if his iptv plugin could play that.

if it's just a youtube video
why not use the official youtube app
or maybe with youtube hd enabled if it's blocked

It's not a regular video - it's a live stream.

I make early some experiments around playing youtube live streams via iptv plugin.
Looks like its possible (something like m3u8 streams).
But i finally don't add it into iptv plugin because dot see peoples interested things like this.

This might be apples and oranges, but my Live Plus can play a live stream from my HDHomeRun TV tuner (HDHR4-2US) via DLNA. The HDHR shows up under Media Servers. No Pause, FF or RW, of course.

I can add youtube stream support to iptvv3 but first need see its need for many peoples - not only for sorb ;)
(adding new functions into iptv make it more hard and slow - so need massive arguments to add new features)
