go Video, which is desktop application for watching YouTube videos. It provides the option to either directly search for YouTube videos from a given search bar or to find videos by some of its built in categories which include, entertainment, cars, travel, fitness, animals, funny, etc. This eliminates the need to use a browser for watching YouTube videos and also is more flexible in terms of size as users can choose a custom size by enlarging or shrinking the application window.

After being launched, goVideo shows a list of the most viewed videos. users can click on any of the categories above (e.g. entertainment), in order to view a list of related videos or perform a YouTube search from the given search box.
Clicking on any video, opens it in a new window. The size of the video can be managed by changing the height or width of the application window. goVideo does not have very intricate options and therefore is a simple and easy to use desktop alternative to a browser for searching videos on YouTube.
