- TV Search
SnapStream's new Web Player is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and all of the major Web browsers, so now everyone can engage in TV search. Inside SnapStream, TV becomes this editable, clippable, linkable medium, fostering conversation and collaboration in a whole new way. And we make it easy to get started. The first time you open your browser and point it to SnapStream, you can self-install the plug-in to begin monitoring TV right away.
Open your favorite browser to log into SnapStream and get your search on.
Use Chrome, Firefox or IE for Windows.
Use Chrome, Firefox or Safari for Mac.
SnapStream now supports Mac OS X 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard) and above. For PC users, we support Windows XP and above. Whether you have a Mac-only environment or a blend of the two, it's no problem.
Make unlimited TV clips and e-mail them to anyone you please. Drag your start and end points to mark the boundaries of your clip, and that's all there is to it.
SnapStream renders the closed captioning data below the video as you play back a TV search result, so you can instantly verify keywords and phrases as they appear on TV.
SmartChapters segment the Web Player's timeline into programs and commercials, making it easy to skip to the content most critical to your TV monitoring operation.
When you click play from a TV search result, the Web Player transports you directly to the point of mention. Fast forward, rewind and jump ahead are available too, for context.
Send a colleague a link of that funny or important TV moment you just found. As long as the recipient is networked to SnapStream, it's as easy as sharing a Web hyperlink.
The first time you play back any 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.
For new customers, SnapStream is now shipping with the cross-compatible Web Player as part of the primary user interface. For existing customers, you can schedule your free upgrade from 4.x to SnapStream 5.9 if you meet the hardware requirements and if your account is in good standing. Learn more about upgrading to 5.9.
What kind of TV do you plan to archive, SD or HD? It's important to consider, HD video takes up a lot more space than SD. If you'll primarily use the footage internally for media monitoring purposes, standard-definition TV will do the trick and allow you to archive content much longer. We recommend high-definition TV to organizations who plan to rebroadcast or repurpose TV content in any way.
