I have the same problem. I tried this layer: geoportal.cuzk.cz/WMTS_ORTOFOTO/… (OGC WMTS 1.0.0) which should work according to the QGIS mailing list: bit.ly/17kiga7 but still getting error: pastebin.com/AnjqPwmk –  Juhele Apr 25 '13 at 13:57

It looks like it could be possible if you modify the existing OpenLayers Plugin for QGIS to do this

You can get the source code for it at github to get an editable version: https://github.com/sourcepole/qgis-openlayers-plugin

You don't have to fork or clone with git account, they offer the source code in a zip/tarball for anyone to download.

You can see some instructions on how to add your own entry at theproject wiki for this plugin:

  • Add a HTML file with your layer in html/
  • *Register your layer in the __init__ method of class OpenlayersPlugin (openlayers_plugin.py)*

It looks like this plugin was used to make a new plugin recently added: TMS for Korean Users so mod away =)

And according to the GetCapabilities document of the WMTS you've pointed to, they offer the service in the Google Mercator projection so it should fit nicely without having to modify any SRS parameters in the OpenLayers plugin.

i'm completely new in the world of open gis so i'm sorry about not understanding a word. could you please explain that a bit simpler to me? thx. –  stefan Feb 20 '13 at 9:03
    
No worries. I'll see what I can do to get it started. I've got the HTML part for OpenLayers almost done. I'll let you know how it goes. –  SaultDon Feb 21 '13 at 2:18
    
hello, perfect! –  stefan Feb 21 '13 at 9:15
    
Hi SaultDon - just wondered if you got anywhere with this. I have a WMTS that is not google projection, so How could i fix the projection declaration in the openlayers_plugin.py? –  tjmgis Jul 4 '13 at 12:29
