With Tv Wave watching your favorite TV stations or listening to various radio shows on your PC should no longer be a problem. The application can stream many TV and radio channels from around the world under various formats such as Sopcast, VLC, Tvu, Flash or WMP.
Hassle-free setup and accessible GUI
During the installation process, this program also includes all the plugins it requires, thus saving you valuable time. After completing the setup process, you come by a minimal and clean interface.
It encompasses a few tabs which enable you to access all available data, as well as a few buttons, and a panel in which to display the video feed. Although no Help contents are included, all types of users can learn how to handle it without encountering any kind of issues.
View lists of all available channels, take screenshots or record feed
Tv Wave displays a list of all supported channels from where you can easily choose the one you want to watch with just a click of the button. The list can be sorted by number, name, genre, country or plugin used.
In addition to that, it is possible add channels to a Favorites directory, so you can always find items that interest you, without going through the whole list again, as well as take snapshots of the window, and record the video or audio input.
Use a TV Tuner and incorporated web browser
The application can also make use of your TV Tuner, if any of course. You can stream tracks and videos using your TV Tuner or by simply selecting the desired video files. Several options are available here, allowing you to convert the image to grayscale, invert colors or flip it vertically or horizontally.
Last but not least, a lightweight web browser is incorporated which enables you to also stream music and clips from popular websites, such as YouTube, SoundCloud and Vimeo, as well view the TV schedule.
Performance and conclusion
The quality of the video stream is not that great and it is better suited for low resolution screens. Most of the High Definition channels are compressed and cannot be viewed at their true quality. The system’s performance is not going to be hampered.
To conclude, Tv Wave is a pretty good solution for people interested in watching TV online or with the help of their TV Tuner.
