Okay. This is cool.

- Has one of them "as you type" searchbars for video and wikipedia. Type in "kitten" and it shows in nanoseconds all the relative stuff about kittens.
- Really fast, as from software point and in downloading videos.
- Seems to have gazillion video sites.
- Plays videos really smooth. Has different quality settings and an audio only mode. (Tested with Wizard)
- Background and playlist mode for video downloading. Good if you're using cellular networks.

It does have few bugs and it doesn't really have a way to list videos like "top 10 from youtube", instead it shows a list of some news, sports and political stuff on the search page by default.
They also seem to be planning a java version for the functionally challenged phones

aside from just playing "unrestricted" video, this is pretty brilliant

Brilliant piece of software.

Just one thing I noted immediately after its installation.

1) I tried to install this on the storage card. But it actually installed in the programs folder of the main memory.

2) After I installed this software I keep getting the sound I have associated with the event "Connection Established" ever few seconds though actual connection does not take place. As a fix I have disabled any sound for the event "Connection Established". Anyone else noticed this. My device is the HTC Touch.

Regards

I agree, would really like to filter the results by site (i.e YouTube only).
Since it downloads the videos in order to play them - I nice feature would be to beable to save the videos for later repeat views.

I had the same problem... Is there any workaround to get it installed to storage card instead?
