Author's review

Watch stream videos while playing games or operating any other application, with a friendly media player.

uView is a comprehensive program which allows you to play videos while working with other applications. The software is capable of playing media files from local folders or streaming videos from a variety of hosting websites. This way you can watch your favorite videos while playing games or working.

Optimized window for multi-tasking

uView is a reliable application which enables you to watch videos while working, without the hassle of resizing the video window all the time. The media player features an adjustable window, which you can move to any location on your screen or resize in order to fit your preferences.

The window is set to stay always on top and supports transparency adjustment. Moreover, you can lock the windows size and position, in order to avoid accidental changes.

Additionally, while streaming a video from a hosting website, you can easily acquire general data, such as video URL, the URL at the current time or embed code. All the video options supported by the hosting service are also available when streaming content with uView.

Video streaming and media player tool

uView allows you to stream videos from websites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Twitch, Azubu, HitBox, Netflix, Youku, Dailymotion or Facebook. You simply need to select the desired domain, then copy the video URL to clipboard. The program can instantly import it and prompt the media player. After closing the video, the program remembers the most recently streamed item.

Alternatively, you can load a media file from a local folder, using the menu at the top of the main window. The supported file formats include MKV, MPEG, WMV, AVI, MP4 for video and MP3 for audio.

Adjustable interface

uView allows you to adjust both the video player window, to the size, location and transparency level of your preference, but also the main window. It features a double interface: the default mode and the minimized window. A dedicated button near the upper edge allows you to quickly switch between the two modes.
