Play Live TV and View Transcripts

Web Player Marquee

Watch live or recorded TV from your favorite Web browser with SnapStream's Web Player. When you run a TV search, it drops you right at the point of mention, highlighting where it found your search terms in the The TV transcript. Click on any word in the transcript to be taken to that point. Do it all from here: make clips, share TV to social media, transcode and more.

TV video tagging

Custom tagging allows you to label media items with relevant terms that become part of the search meta data, making the TV content easy to locate in the future.

Windows and Mac Compatible

SnapStream delivers fluid experiences for Mac and PC users alike. We support Windows XP and above and Mac OS X 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard) and above.

Easy Install

Easy to install and use

Upon initial playback of a TV recording, the Web Player plug-in knows to install itself. It's that smart. Unless you face high IT restrictions, you won't need assistance.

Compare and Play 4 TV Shows at a Time

SnapStream multi-viewer

SnapStream's new multi-viewer allows you to monitor up to four channels simultaneously and compare what's airing at the same time in different places. What did your competitors cover in tonight's newscast? What story were you running? SnapStream helps TV stations and broadcasters gather this valuable competitive intelligence. The multi-viewer is also a handy resource for content analysis at journalism schools, i.e. how Fox News vs. CNN covered a story.

View and Work with TV in Playlists

SnapStream TV Playlists

Add as many TV recordings, clips and segments as you'd like into a designated playlist, and you can view them back to back in sequence in SnapStream's Web Player. The playlist feature is practical for instances where you are sharing several pieces of content during presentations and meetings. Playlists are also a simple way to group content together and then do something with it. You can run a batch of common processing tasks, such as ShowSqueeze, SmartChapter and Workflows, on your playlist.

Thank you, someone will be in touch soon.
