How to use this free video browser to watch videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, etc.:
Getting started with Motionbox is quite easy; download it from the link at the end and install it. Do note that while installing, it will first install Qt framework, if not installed on your PC already.
As I said, its interface is quite intuitive. It’s pretty similar to a web browser; but customized for searching and playing online videos. There is a search bar the top to find videos from any platform of your choice and the options are YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and SoundCloud. There is also an option to perform a unified search on these platforms. To begin with Motionbox, let’s see how to search and browse videos in a tab. Nothing tricky here, use the search bar at the top and type a keyword. It then automatically shows suggestions, select any one and then select a search engine to browse or play videos, as shown below. To perform a unified search, select the “Video Network” option.Once you have performed the search, you will see a video (not played) on its play section and a list of next videos in the playlist in the bottom section, as you can see in the main screenshot. Simply double click on any video in the playlist to play it or you can even use the controls to see the next and previous video from the video player section. Once you have started playing a video, you can easily browse related videos from the “Related Browser”.
Now, if you want to play more videos, you can open up multiple tabs inside Motionbox and perform the same procedure to find videos and play them. In order to open a new tab, click on the small “+” button at the top. This will open a new tab and you can now stream videos in a similar fashion as explained above.
