    "It works, but what's with the postage-stamp video?"

    September 10, 2008  |   By DarkHawke

    Pros

    Works with Yahoo Widgets, always a good thing.
    You can scroll through the video at will and advance to the next or go back to the previous track.
    You can see what's coming up on the playlist.
    Mute button.

    Cons

    The video is postage-stamp sized.
    There's no control over what's on the playlist; you get what they give you.
    Can't adjust the volume.

    Summary

    It's a cute thing, and it works, but in this day and age of widescreen monitors and downloadable HD content becoming more and more common, why would you want this teeny video viewer? There's none of the playlist/category control that you can get through the CNET TV page. I prefer Miro for my CNET video downloads, but even iTunes (shudder!) woudl be a step in a better direction. It's functional but pointless, in my humble.
