For the data source like Facebook or Instagram that could be configured directly in App Studio, you can add the section in App Studio.
While for the live streaming for TV channel, you'd better make the configuration in Visual Studio, which could make it more convenient if you need to add more advanced features or maintain it later. You could refer to the sample project playerframework
you provide on codeplex.com. In App Studio, maybe you could try the custom API since you need to access third party data.
