About this project

Do you take home movies or do video editing?  What if you could take full advantage of every moment from your video, movie, and music library from creating your own screencap "scene snapshots" to making new media productions from just your favorite parts?

HBrowser is ideal for home video editing and is excellent for simply finding all those video and audio moments in your media library.

I'm Brent Baxter, the creator of HBrowser and I've come to Kickstarter to share with you my Media Indexer.

HBrowser has the world's only Hierarchical Pyramid Browser and offers amazing media playback control and access through parallel index files pre-recorded on your computer.

HBrowser is the only video browser in the world to utilize a hierarchical-pyramid media browser.  No one else has it.  This offers amazing search results and unprecedented frame level access to every scene and every moment to all your video, audio and movie files.

In addition, HBrowser provides instant access to all your media files through a set of Parallel Index Files linked to your original source media.  These Parallel files do not alter your original files at all - instead they provide unbelievable playback control, scene access and many wonderful video tools based on favorite moments selections.

The Break Down Mode is one of two main search modes used by HBrowser.  Break Down Mode slices up media into ever increasing "Zoom" searches within chosen "chapter-like" media sequences.

The “H” in HBrowser stands for “Hierarchical,” a pyramid zoom browsing method that allows users interactive, time-based key frame access to every media moment with ever more frequent thumbnails - all the way down to frame level.  Think DVD style “mini chapters.” 

HBrowser not only can help users instantly find chosen moments in large movie, music and home video libraries, HBrowser has a range of very useful features.

HBrowser can even create new media productions from just the favorite moments using the integrated, award winning video tool, VirtualDub.

HBrowser, Media Indexer, has a rich set of useful favorite moments’ based features, including the ability to easily identify scene changes and edit out commercials.

Rediscover the joy of working with videos, music and media with instant access to all your favorite moments and much, much more!

I hope you will discover how fun and simple it is to use HBrowser and the satisfaction you can have from instantly accessing, saving and making use of all your favorite moments from screen snapshots to "just the favorite parts" clips.

HBrowser v1.0 was written for Windows XP but is coded exceedingly well.  HBrowser 1.0 has been fully tested and works flawlessly Windows XP, Vista, and functions near perfectly with Windows 7 and Windows 8.

HBrowser also works perfectly with Macs and Linux using "Parallels," "Bootcamp," Wine or similar programs often even better.  For this project we are using WineBottler

Video Tutorials for installing HBrowser on Mac iOs and Linux and other operating systems using WineBottler along with other useful information will be provided by future Updates after this fundraiser closes.

This Kickstarter Fundraiser is intended to share HBrowser for those who do not know about it ...

But that is only the start. We also want to make it better than it was, faster, stronger... you get the idea…HBrowser is a wonderful media indexing and navigator tool with untapped potential but we really need your support to help make many improvements possible.

In addition to updating HBrowser to work flawlessly with today’s operating systems, some key features planned in this Kickstarter campaign include the following:

1) HBrowser will streamline the interface for touch screens, tablets and smart phones and todays devices across ALL PLATFORMS.

2) HBrowser will carry a valuable set of new tools including an internal integrated video recorder for recording screen activities and streaming media.  So now, HBrowser will not only be able to index media it will be able to record and simultaneously index that same video on the fly!

3) HBrowser already works with audio but the next version of HBrowser will work much better for all your music files including integration with lyrics and a very cool and fun visual music search process.

4)  Being able to share favorite moments, notes and time saving pre-index rates are already available to HBrowser but require a number of steps. Integrating these features with media sites, such as YouTube, and sharing them through social media, such as Facebook, are other upcoming features.

What better to do with your favorite media moments and favorites based new movie, video and music productions than to share them with others?  HBrowser will help you to create the “mix tape” media of today’s generation!

5) Instant Key Frame relocating is another new feature which allows users to instantly reposition their current Key Frame display set to match the current location in the media.

HBrowser is a Media Indexer that helps you find and select favorite moments from your audio/video multimedia collection by providing instant flexible access (hierarchical and time based) to the original source through a parallel index file pre-recorded on your computer. The selected favorite moments can later be instantly recalled with a mouse click.  A pyramid browser offers quick access to search levels and you can collect, save,recombine and even print favorite moments. HBrowser works with almost any AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV, WAV, MP3, WMA, unencrypted DVD’s, miniDV tapes and live sources: Web Cam Video Streams, TV/Sat Tuner Video Streams and Generic Capture Devices!

You can download a trial version here:  http://www.mediaindexer.com/Download.html  and you can also read more information here and  here.

HBrowser can work with a large variety of sources including media files, DVDs and streaming media.  During streaming, indexing is done "on the fly" in real-time.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges with updating software primarily with encountering bugs or incompatibilities. As with any program, there could potentially be some bugs to be worked out. This may also be true when upgrading HBrowser to v2.0. Consequently, this may potentially delay the upgrade release date and slow rewards until everything gets ironed out.

But otherwise, there are no other major concerns.

There is one other important thing to note for existing HBrowser v1.0. For Best Results when using HBrowser, place your movie, music and media files to be indexed into individual folders. When you do this, HBrowser never fails.
