YouTube Widget 220.127.116.11
Search for YouTube videos and watch them without using a web browser with the help of this lightweight and easy to configure widget
YouTube Widget is just one example and, as you can probably imagine, it is a handy widget that aims to provide you with a simple and comfortable method to search for videos on YouTube.
Once installed, the widget displays a simple window, comprising a retractable search form and a playback screen. In order to start a new search, you must enter the desired keyword within the form, set the sorting options and press the 'Submit' button.
The search results are neatly displayed, enabling you to easily navigate to the one you want to watch. Videos can be sorted by relevance, last update date, number of views or rating.
Clicking on any of the generated results sends the video to the built-in player, enabling you to watch the video without accessing the YouTube website in your browser. Needless to say that the application requires Internet access in order to work properly.
While the Yahoo! Widget Engine is compatible with the latest versions of the Windows OS, we experienced some issues while testing the widget on Windows 8. However, everything worked fine on Windows 7 computers.
YouTube Widget offers an alternative to watching videos on YouTube with the help of a browser. Just place it anywhere on your desktop and search for online videos faster, whenever you want to.
