Live TV Player
Live TV Player is a very simple application that allows you to watch online television and listen to your favorite radio stations using just your Internet connection.
The market is already full of similar software solutions, but Live TV Player attempts to attract a larger audience with a very clean interface that's addressed to all types of users.
Truth is, this isn't the most appealing interface we've ever seen, but it still provides a quick way to find a channel and play your favorite content.
While it boasts both a “Search” and a “Browse” channel tool right in the main window, Live TV Player organizes all channels by country, so you can easily find the streams available from Belarus, Argentina or the United Kingdom.
Another interesting feature of Live TV Player is the one that lets you save certain stations to favorites, which means that you can quickly watch a certain station at a later date.
With Real Player and Windows Media Player needed to open the available streams, Live TV Player seems to work flawlessly on all Windows versions, with a minimum footprint on hardware resources.
The problem is the same as in any other similar application: some of the streams do not work anymore and although that's not the developer's fault, an update to clean the dead links would be great.
But overall, Live TV Player is a decent software solution that does what it says and it's far from being a resource hog. A new and more appealing interface is a must have though.
