Little jQuery plugin to combine YouTube uploads and favorites feeds

I recently found that I wanted to grab a feed of a YouTube account’s uploads and favorites. Unfortunately, the YouTube API doesn’t offer this by itself, so I’ve made a little jQuery function to do it for you.

Use like this:

$(selector).youtubeUploadsAndFavorites();

My first idea for this was to use Yahoo! Pipes to combine the two feeds, which would have been better (better cacheing, etc.), but as I’ve found is often the case, the service was too slow, flakey and cumbersome for me. I ended up with something working only to find that all the module previews stopped working. Oh well.
