Projects / HeldenViewer


HeldenViewer makes it possible to search for, download, and view Youtube videos in a very easy to use fashion. An important feature is the concept of adding authors as favorites, in order to be notified at the next start of HeldenViewer if the author has uploaded a new video. You will no longer be interrupted by any commercials. Much like the Youtube platform, you can watch the videos while downloading and use your favorite videoplayer to do this. The only restriction is that the video player must be able to play .flv files, e.g. VideoLanClient.
