What is Quietube?
Quietube is a tool designed to enhance your YouTube experience by cutting out all the ads, comments, and pictures of other videos that fill the screen as you watch a video. It is fast, free, and easy to use. Quietube is great because it allows you to view and share your favorite videos without seeing all the sleazy, annoying ads and inappropriate content you normally find on ad banners. Instead, you get a plain white screen with nothing but the video on it.
Not only is Quietube wonderful for watching videos, it allows you to share videos without the risk of directing friends and family to a page full of embarrassingly inappropriate material. Simply copy and paste the link to the Quietube page onto your blog, Facebook profile, or email message in place of the YouTube link. With Quietube, you get the video and nothing but the video--making it a great resource for parents who want to keep their kids safe from all the bad aspects of YouTube.
In addition to YouTube, Quietube works with BBC iPlayer, Viddler, and Vimeo. Support for other video sites is in progress. For the up-to-date status see the Quietube Twitter feed: @quietube.
