WatchUWant on boxee

WatchUWant is a Pandora-style video search application for Boxee. Just type in "Portuguese vomit wrestling" or whatever you are looking for and it will generate a channel completely filled with Portuguese vomit wrestling off of YouTube.
The app: We’re Pandora for video. We create automatic programming for any distribution method. We get better and better the more people use us, even across different devices.
“Channels” are automatically generated based on user queries. These channels play an endless stream of clips, and we determine how well we choose videos based on how quickly the user skips (or doesn’t skip) to the next one.

We are particularly useful for devices that demand less interaction — mobile and television — because we remove the burden of navigation. On the Web, we’ve found that this way of presenting removes the cognitive load of choosing videos and keeps users highly engaged. All our videos are pulled from YouTube.
