Moovida Moves to Help Viewers Stream Movies

By Peter Suciu

"Seek and you shall find" seems like good advice, but the scripture of Matthew shows that he never dealt with online streaming services. Even once you have the content yourself, managing it can be trying, even for someone with saint-like patience.

But the makers of the Moovida service have come up with a solution that could be considered almost divine. The Moovida media player is designed to provide a simple way to find, manage and play content regardless of the format. Moovida offers users a visual, intuitive 3D graphics environment that is based on GStreamer digital framework, and supports playback of content in Full HD (1080p) with a number of formats including DivX, H.264/AVC, AVI, ASF, WMV, MKV, FLV, MOV, OGG, MPEG-1, MPEG-4, Xvid, Matroska Sorensen, MPEG-2 Audio, AC-3, On2 TruMotion VP6, WebM/VP8, Vorbis and Quicktime.

"Moovida is here to actually help you find the content you are looking for," said Emmananuel Marquez, CEO of Moovida during a demo of the media player at this week's CES in LAs Vegas. Marquez added that "digital media is both everywhere and yet nowhere."

The Moovida player further allows viewers to navigate through the incompatible video formats from a number of partners, while allowing users to search by movie title, director, writer or use filters to search through content. It can be used to backup and catalog a DVD movie collection as well.

The Moovida media player is available now as a free download.
