CineTube, a streaming movie player for Windows Phone 8


CineTube is a simply laid out movie player for Windows Phone 8 that taps into full-length movies that are freely available over on YouTube.

CineTube has a bit of appeal but also could use a little refinement.  It is worth a try but don't expect to see any current blockbuster hits listed.  However, you may find an older movie title that is just as entertaining.

The main pages for CineTube has a Home Page listing recently added titles, a Genres Page that breaks down the movies into broader categories, and a Search Page where you can hunt down a movie title by keyword.

CineTube's Main Pages

Movie titles range from Mad Max (1979) to 2 Guns (2013) to Nosferatu (1922).  Movie titles may have multiple streaming sources and lack any description when you pull up a title.  It would have been nice to have seen an IMDb link to the movie available to give you a clue as to what the movie is about.

CineTube Streaming Movie (Mad Max)

Streaming was smooth and while the movie selection is somewhat limited, there are some nice titles thrown into the mix.  CineTube comes across as a nice movie player with a simplistic approach.  Maybe a little too simplistic though.  In searching through the movie titles and watching a few of the classics, I could not help but think the app needed a little more meat on the bone.  Descriptions of the movies would be a step in the right direction or a way to tag the titles as favorites for easy access.

CineTube is a free, ad-supported app available for Windows Phone 8 devices.  You can eliminate the ads through an in-app purchase of $1.49.  You can pick up your copy of CineTube here in the Windows Phone Store.

Jazmac says:

This may turn out to be a really important app IMHO.  The older films are in many ways better written and better acted than the stuff being released today.

wangsa86 says:

Movie planet or filmspot is better

Koen Geerts says:

Nah, flash videos

Seconded, I got it for free so yay for me

el-ojo says:

Thanks, I knew Movie Planet from W8. I was unaware they had an app for WP.
The good thing about both those apps is that the Ads don't cover the screen when watching a movie unlike CineTube. Appreciate it.
