WorldTV99 upgrade is now available at maemo.org>download>multimedia or at my signiture. If you have prior versions installed, you should be able to get it via, umm.... SSU .
Major change, this time we have a user manual!
Most channels are now full screen, no eye soring black borders, more channels, less dead links. More info from user manual. Comments? Critics? Rottentomatos?
Here are pics of 0.2.0 in full screen vs eye soring black borders, http://www.internettablettalk.com/fo...t=21849&page=5, thread #49.

Go maemo.org/download/multimedia to dl/install kmplayer and WorldTV99. You should already have mplayer and media player (osso media server) installed. Kmplayer is a frontend for these two players.
Start kmplayer, WorldTV99 is already loaded and running in WindowScreen mode. WorldTV99 has 2 screen modes, double tap on the video will toggle between FullScreen(FS) and WindowScreen(WS) mode.
Favorite - tap on favorite will open up channels you selected as favorite when in WindowScreen mode. You can edit the title of your favorite channels. Double tap on video toggle between FS and WS mode.
Channels - are alphabetically grouped into countries and subgrouped into each channel; clicked on group folder Canada, will expand into each single channel. All country/channels are arranged alphabetically. Done manually, so there will be a couple notch out of synch
click any channel, it will play. If not playing, go menu>Player>pick the other player, only Osso Media Server or Mplayer are streaming. Always check Use omapfb with MPlayer, it makes video rendering much smooth.
FS mode - double tap on video toggle between FS and WS mode.
tap on right upper corner will turn on a TVmenubar, a blue bar with blue triangles on either ends and a green star on the right side. Tap on either triangles with turn channel up and down, touch the blue bar for selection. Tap on the green star will remember the channel and showed up in the favorite list. Favorite list is on FullScreen mode, double tap video to toggle between FS and WS.
* = top quality
folder = expand to see single channel
DownLoad clips - select a link from the 'feeds' group in favorites by a
single click (ie. select only). Next press the 'save' button (the most
right button). This will open the RSS feed and instead of directly
playing, you get a 'Save as' dialog. Now save it somewhere and wait
until kmplayer finished download. The saved file can be found as first item in the 'Most Recents' list, double click on this, it starts to play locally.
increase volume: add to the file /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
When kmplayer is up, menu>Player>enable Use omapfb with MPlayer, that makes mplayer decoding much smooth.
.mplayer has more hardware buttons to inc/dec vol. and has also preconfigured in a lot of channel to make it run at FS, except CBCs. OssoMediaserver runs with 2 black borders.
Bottom line: There are 2 modes, FS and WS modes, 2 players, Osso Media Server and mplayer.
