Features Overview
Mixture of youtube style video streamer + downloader
Get best of both the worlds

  • Watch videos, from any source.
    Current version supports youtube,direct links and split links.
    The next release includes support for vimeo, dailymotion, and browser integration.
  • Watch & download simultaneously
  • Neembuu downloads data only once! Whatever we see is cached on harddisk. When we watch the video again the content is not downloaded, the local caches are used.
  • Get full download speed like any download accelerator, no compromise
  • Includes a copy of VLC media player so that users may enjoy their favorite videos in the best media player ever created. You can also use any other video player of your choice.
  • You can increase the volume of the streaming video upto 200% on VLC media player.
Advanced solutions to buffering problems
  • Buffers are not deleted no matter what. You can even
    reboot your pc, and you will still find the buffered data to be present
  • When you forward the video the streaming/download point also shifts, previous buffer is not deleted!
  • When two buffers meet they are magically joined.
    When all buffers join and you have the full file which you may save.
  • You may save a copy of the file once it has been buffered 100 % (before using this do ensure that you have rights to keep a copy of the file)
  • Advanced concurrent multi-streaming : Buffering can happen from more than one location.
    Which means you can watch the same video from two different locations.
    This advanced feature is useful when you are watching complex non-video file formats using Neembuu.

How it works

Neembuu uses a 3rd party userspace filesystem library called PismoFileMount.
The developers of PismoFileMount have worked in close collaboration
right from the beginning and have been kind enough to add some features
which Neembuu needs to work better.

PismoFileMount was originally made for windows only and then ported to Linux and mac.
The only thing stopping neeembuu from being ported to android and iphone is the problem of
getting PismoFileMount or a virtual filesystem of somekind running on these platforms.

PismoFileMount has been ported in java and the port is called JPfm. NeembuuNow uses
JPfm to do all filesystem wizardry.

NeembuuNow creates a read-only virtual filesystem.
This filesystem can be mounted as a drive (Z: for example) or as a folder (NeembuuVirtual Folder).
It then adds http links as virtual files in this virtual folder.
The application which opens the virtual file sends a read request to operating system,
the operating system forwards the request to Neembuu and then Neembuu downloads the
required data and then supplies the data back.
Only the region requested by the application is downloaded.
