YouTube desktop players are becoming more popular these days as more video enthusiasts prefer to use an app located directly on their computer or mobile device to search and watch videos rather than visiting the actual YouTube web site. We will take a look at the features and benefits of the top 3 YouTube desktop players.
VLC Player is the most popular music and video player available. Using VLC Player to stream YouTube videos directly from YouTube allows users to have a little more control and additional features over the standard YouTube player.
Minitube YouTube Desktop Application
