All features

Slimlined user interface
StreamBuffRe provides a slim and classical interface. Icons make it simple and intuitive to find actions and settings. The most common tasks can be done with just a single click; more advanced tasks are organized in clear menus. A dark and a classic bright theme for each window is available to match your desktop enviroment.

Supports several protocols and streaming services
StreamBuffRe can handle URLs from various video and streaming websites using different protocols. These services include but are not limited to YouTube, Vimeo and Twitch. If you find service StreamBuffRe can't handle yet, you can add compatibility with your own scripts written in JavaScript.

Highly parallel
Don't either watch, save or convert a stream; Use StreamBuffRe and do all of this at the same time. No matter if you want to watch several streams at once or decide on the fly to save some of them, with StreamBuffRe you don't need to download them again. This includes recording of livestreams after you have alredy watched them.

External players
StreamBuffRe uses external media players to play streams with best quality and performance. You can create your own player profiles to directly start a player with custom settings, like using a certain screen or audio output device. Also several different players can be started at the same time, showing different streams parallel.

Integrated search
If you don't have a direct link to a stream or playlist but know its title you can search for it directly from StreamBuffRes main window. Many popular services are included. Searching for lists of titles at once is also supported.

Customizable hotkeys
StreamBuffRe and its running players can be controlled via customizable hotkeys even when minimized. One of the hotkeys is the so called boss key which lets you completely hide StreamBuffRe and all running players with a single button.

Remote control
Don't want to sit in front of your PC or no more screen is left to control StreamBuffRe? StreamBuffRes remote control allows you to handle all streams and running players from any device. The only requirement to use it is a modern web browser. No other program or app is necessary. The remote controls interface can also be freely modified to perfectly match every purpose.

External converter
StreamBuffRe is not limited to just save the streams as they are buffered, but can also use external converter to directly get them in the format you need. Extracting the sound from a video or converting a stream to be played on another device for example, are tasks StreamBuffRe will do for you with only a view clicks.

Manage streams
Create favourites to start streams with preset player profiles with a single click. Get informed if streams are online or new streams are available, to handle every supported playlist like it would be a podcast.

Preview window
Quickly check something or play a stream by using the preview window. It can be customized with several widgets, like schedules showing when a certain show starts on a stream. The preview window opens automatically, when the mouse is above the taskbar icon and hides again on leave.

Ongoing development and automatic updates
The constant development not only ensures quick fixing of bugs, but also adds new features. The internal updater keeps StreamBuffRe, its plugins and other external programs up to date for you. It ensures that you always have the latest features available.

There's no actual Linux port. I think it's supposed to run through WINE which it doesn't (at least not on my setup).
