The idea is: For all the non-flash videos on the internets that you're too lazy to download and watch, or download and then search for a codec for several hours to watch it.. you can alternatively use Phlix to do all that for you. All you need is a web browser with flash installed. In a attempt to simplify what it for the masses: It's a media player. Let's call it that. Right now, the quality suffers massively due to the low bitrate and the flv codec. I'm working on a on-the-fly h.264 encoder, but that'll be a little bit of a wait.
I have tried it on a lot of different video files I found around the net, and it works amazingly well."
