"Most Innovated Program and Website To Date"

January 08, 2012  |  By metaltech007

 |  Version: Veetle TV 0.9.17

Pros

HUGE selection of channels. Movies, tv, documentaries, live cams, music and more.

Open forums and live chat so viewers can communicate with each other and the broadcasters in real time.

With each passing day more people are broadcasting higher quality programming due to the cost of high-speed broadband going down in most areas.

So far immune to most copyright issues. As long as broadcasters broadcasting possible copyrighted material do so in moderation, meaning 12 hour streams every 24 hours instead of 72 plus hour streams, the copyright police seem to leave it alone. Although, I see many who broadcast such material 24/7 for many days with no issues. I believe Vettle something in place which keeps this site protected from such claims as this is the ONLY program and website I know of that's open and popular that still remains online without issues.

It's FREE!

Cons

Comments disappearing. The automated Veetle comment mod can be very schizophrenic and will delete your comment if you use a banned word. Which words are banned and when I don't know. Swear words of course, but there have been times my comments were deleted because I used the word "I'll" or the year "2012." I test this by splitting up my full comment to find the banned word, and many times just minutes or hours later, I'll be able to use the banned word. So if you leave a lengthy comment be sure to copy and paste it so you can go through it and remove whatever word it's not allowing you to use. See how silly this is, I spent how many words talking about mostly a non-issue that shouldn't even be an issue.

Too many people broadcast in lower bitrate quality but that trend is slowly turning around.

You need at least a 3MB download speed to view higher quality channels. Even though a high-quality may run at 1,500 bitrate, the peaks can be double that. 5MB or higher is recommended.

Summary

Just what the internet needed.

The best way to navigate is from the main page click on "channels" then to the left will be categories. Movies are "Entertainment" and TV shows are now "Shows." Then there is All, Animation, Comedy, Education, Gaming, Mobile, Sports, Music, News and Religion.

I was a longtime viewer turned broadcaster. This is now one of the top 3 sites I spend my time on. I love the ability to interact and connect with other users and for the most part it's a "troll free" environment. There is no Porn as some claim, in Veetle's early days there was some, but very little, now a porn channel wouldn't last more than a few minutes if at all. I haven't seen one in more than 4 months.

For windows pc and mobile users it's flawless, but since the last Mac OS upgrades/updates there have been issues with Mac users finding many channels unable to play, but Veetle will have a fix for it soon. Some Mac users report no issues though.

Come join the new revolution in entertainment, it can't be stopped. SOPA and the Protect IP bills and similar ones WILL NOT survive congress if we THE PEOPLE, THE TECH PEOPLE, ban together and bring in the new world together. Peace

"Empty Promises"

October 17, 2011  |  By minge95

 |  Version: Veetle TV 0.9.17

Pros

Good programs listed.

Cons

Programs dont stream well..some are unwatchable. And now, Forensic Files and Twilight Zone are gone. Useless. Probably some content left for 12 year olds.

Summary

Let me know if and when it comes back and shows some good old classic TV programs. For now...deleting the program.

"WOW! Wonderful program!"

June 11, 2010  |  By searley99

 |  Version: Veetle TV 0.9.17

Pros

Installs easily, works as described without draining resources. On the Veetle site it is nice to have so many choices and enjoyable to read the user comments too.

Cons

Channel selection seems too static. I would think there would be more new channels happening faster than there are. I hope more people decide to broadcast comedy (hint, hint).

Summary

Like everything related to the VLC group of programs and projects it just works, easily and correctly. I send a big thank-you to everyone who worked to make Veetle a reality. Thank you.

April 22, 2010  |  By jackrbike

Pros

Looks good, but won't implement till I know what they will do with info.
Clear, simple privacy policy, but . . .

I cannot properly rate this, but wanted to highlight privacy problem. Will write and ask for policy.
