Drag & drop YouTube, Vimeo or local clips into HUDTube and enjoy browser-free watching! 

Have you ever wished you could watch your favourite videos from YouTube or Vimeo in a separate window, adjust it’s size or just easily loop the video you really, really love without downloading it? We had the same dream and decided to make it come true. Now your wishes may come true too, with HUDTube. 

* Give your browser a rest

HUDTube is simple, but it has all the stuff you need to really enjoy browser-free videos. You just drag YouTube, Vimeo or local clips to HUDTube dock icon or its window, and it’s done. Or if you want, you can instal plugin for Safari and Chrome and you just click one button. But don’t think that it’s all to it. As your clips are now outside the box you can:

⌘ loop your favorite music videos to watch them over and over again without looking for the browser’s tab and clicking play every time the video ends,

⌘ decide about the sound level (just use media keys to adjust volume up, down or mute the video), 

⌘ play with the size of the video's window and its opacity, 

⌘ leverage HUDTube's incredible memory and play previously watched clips with just one click - no more firing up your browser tab to search what you want to watch,

⌘ manage your video playlist – create, edit, search - play,

⌘ control the stream quality – you better stay with SD on mobile network and rock with 1080p when watching videos at home.

* Freedom is about making your own decisions

While HUDTube puts itself in your menu bar, which is super useful, as you can drag and drop there video’s url at any time, you can also put it in the dock, have HUDTube window always on top or let it run in the background (or minimized). You can also import links by using dedicated plugin for Safari and Chrome.

* Why buy?

① to let your browser run uninterrupted and fast while watching tons of videos

② to keep your workflow clean while listening to conference videos

③ to freely watch walkthrough videos for your favorite games

④ to loop your current earworm – and never care about clicking "play" over and over again

⑤ to relive your browser – you won’t find flash around here

⑥ to have your most loved videos always within your view, even while you're doing something else

Review by deibu76

Great app - esp. with playlist support improved in new version - It seems A lot of the gripes re:playlists seem to have been addressed in this latest update, and I'm using it quite a bit now! You can drag-and-drop between playlists, delete from playlists, and rearrange playlists easily, making it a great way to create and manage video playlists seamlessly from a mix of several online sites and locally-stored files you might want to add. So it definitely seems that the developer addressed the playlist issues previous reviewers had. As with the previous version, it uses much less memory and CPU than Adobe Flash, and video playback is smoother than HTML5 or Flash, and also works better with multiple monitors and desktops. No more exiting full-screen when you go into mission control in Lion! Only think missing that I would like to see is the ability to drag-and-drop a video onto a specific playlist in the Playlists Manager. Excellent app, and thumbs-up to the developer!

Review by Rodolfo

AppleTV Streaming removed???? - Guys, this is the whole reason I brought your app !! --This is THE key feature of your product-- On the software practice side, you are breaking an important rule. YOU CANNOT JUST REMOVE A FEATUR. You can do that in a new version I.e. “2.0” or “Lite” but not in your commercial product. In addition, you exposed a fail on the Apple Store: My computer is set for automatic “updates”, You should informed to Apple that you were going to DOWNGRADE you app, and the Apple store app should not allow automatic updates for this kind of situations to ALLOW users decide if they want to trash their money (In this case $6.99) or not. Sorry Macosocoe guys, I want my App back or my money back...

Review by Blue545

Broken App - Wow, thanks guys. All I really wanted from this app was the browser extensions and they don’t install. “Safari Can’t Find The Server” appears when you choose to install them. Wasted $7, and in true App Store fashion, there’s no way to get your money back. Crooks.

Version 1.6.1
Review by droxey support no longer works - Purchased the app, tested with a link, and the error reports it is unsupported. Vimeo support is the key feature to this app. Don’t waste your time on this, folks. Poorly maintained with zero functionality.
