Your player may not support online streams, but this is no longer a problem due to 3DYD YouTube Source. And the good news is that you can play videos from other websites as well, not only from YouTube.
Unlike other similar apps, 3DYD YouTube Source can be customized and you can adjust its settings.
By accessing the “Properties” window you will be able to select video quality – from smallest size and fastest speed to best image but using more computer resources. If you want to benefit from the highest quality available at the moment (4K resolution) select 3072p from the drop down menu (if available).
3DYD YouTube Source also works with 3D-compatible devices and makes it possible to give priority to this type of videos. You can also specify formats that you want to ignore and formats that should be given priority.
These tools are critical because most video sites hold multiple video qualities for each video file and users may want to choose a certain quality level.
Before installing 3DYD YouTube Source to your computer, make sure the player you want to use to view online videos supports DirectShow source filters. One of these compatible media players is MPC–HC
All you need to do is use the media player’s Open File option and paste the video URL – now you can watch online videos without using an Internet browser!
This application is a DirectShow source filter which helps you avoid browser problems and use the media player software installed on your computer.
