    Hi everyone,

    I've only recently found this forum after getting my playbook several months ago. In reading through many threads, I'm really impressed by the sense of community.

    I really love my Playbook! So naturally, being a computer geek, I decided to build an app :-) Here's what it does and why I built it.

    The app I built is called Web Videos. I often hear about youtube videos after they go viral. I thought it would be cool to be one of the first ones to see it before everyone knows about it. After doing some research I found a way to do that through a YouTube API and using the Adobe AIR development environment. Then I realized that there were many videos that I wanted to see over again, so I added the ability to track my favorites and easily play all of them continuously (sort of like a playlist of all your favorites).

    Then, I noticed a great idea from another app for using the Playbook to easily look at TV shows from web sites of the big TV networks. I thought it would be really neat to be able to first see the latest viral youtube videos and then proceed to check-out the shows that I want to watch all within the same user interface (sort of a fusion between the latest and most interesting from user generated content on youtube and favorite TV shows)... So that's what I've added with the most recent update :-)

    Hope you try it and like it. I'd love to hear your feedback :-) as I'm constantly working on improving it.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Question: Can your 'playlist' function also play videos that are already on the pb? Folks have been asking for such a feature so that they can continuously play their shorter videos one after the other without having to do it manually.

    Thanks very much for the welcome!

    The 'playlist' function isn't enabled for videos already on the pb. But that is an excellent suggestion. I will put that at the top of my list of features to add and will start working on it :-). Thanks very much for the feedback!
