The iDesktop.tv team have been very busy working hard on a new version of iDesktop.tv which is near beta.
Have you ever wanted to create a custom player and playlist of YouTube videos with a few clicks?
Have you ever found YouTube’s custom players limited?
Have you ever wanted to create different player types such as pop-out players and video walls?
Have you found using the embed player does not match the design and style of your website?
Have you ever wanted to brand your own player with your own logo, colour and skins?
Have you ever wanted to put your own advertisements between videos?
Well iDesktop.tv has gone all out to produce fully customisable players that will suit non-commercial and commercial needs.
Custom players can now be produced taking videos from YouTube’s users, channels, results of a search, featured videos, top rated, your favourites, your playlists and much more. With over 15 players and playlist types, users can now produce those custom players they have always craved for their websites. Extensive custom options are available to produce the unique player that suits you. We have also added fully customisable advertising allowing users to place certain videos at the start, between or at the end of videos in the playlist.
New features to the idesktop.tv website include :
- Custom embedded players for playlists
- User Interface
- Video player re-design
- MP3 downloads
- More Stable and faster website
- And a lot more

The Expo took place in the Berliner Congress Center on 21st October 2008.
The application involved writing a short description about iDesktop.tv. From this, Lukasz Gadowski(Spreadshirt) and Brady Forrest (O’Reilly) chose iDesktop.tv to present with 5 other finalists (Aka-aki, Amazee, Plista, SoundCloud and Txtr) at the Web.20 Expo in Berlin. iDesktop.tv were the only UK based compnay. The format was simple, five minutes on stage and a maximum of 15 slides, no demos and videos are allowed. We gave a presentation on the upcoming release v2.0.
Jason Grimmitt and Dale Pepper flew over to Berlin to represent iDesktop.tv. At 17.45 local time, iDesktop.tv were on stage in front of over 1000 people including Lukasz Gadowski, Christophe Maire, Brady Forrest and Mike Butcher, who gave feedback on the presentations. The presentation went well with all the judges giving postitive feedback.
