clunky. doesn’t work as advertised

I’m looking for an app that will pull my favorite streaming video and put them in a window that stays above all others. ideally, the ISS feed. your app just takes me to the website. want a refund, please.

Developer Response ,

You should use the correct UStream links, those are that can be embeded, to get this work.

If you have Stream Player installed, try to
- select this link ->
- right click on selection and choose "Open Selection with Stream Player"

That should work!
