You need to install the Tilelayer Plugin. From Internet / OpenLayers plugin Menu, this provides a list of available tms layers such as osm.
I have not tried adding a custom layer in QGIS, but the TileLayerPlugin github page describes how to specify custom layers.
Example of the syntax recognized by this pluginRoadMap FreeTileMap http://freetilemap.example.com/road/{z}/{x}/{y}.png  You would then have to convert the link provided in the Nepal Imagery wiki page for Martadi replacing {zom} by {z}

I'm trying to figure out how to bring in Tile Mapping Service within QGIS using the TileLayer plugin. I have attached a .tsv file that I am using to try and access the Martadi imagery tiles from this page: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal_imagery_hosted_by_Google_Crisis_Response
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for how to get this to work. I want to create educational materials (labs) to show how OSM data/imagery can be used to explore world events in great detail and tell a story about how certain data is actually being utilized on the ground. For example, a module may be:
a. Using the imagery and available data identify all of the IDP camps in a neighborhood of Kathmandu
b. Estimate the population density assuming 3 people per X square meters of tent
c. Given some total amount of resources (food, water, medical supplies, clothing etc.), allocate X amount of resources to each IDP camp based on that population density
d. Determine how long it will take to get to each camp assuming an average speed of X km/hour while taking into account downed bridges and blocked roads

Getting imagery into QGIS is my biggest hurdle so far!
