I suggest you ...

Create an app for controlling Bintube from an Android device and/or the iPhone/iPod/iPad.

You can obviously map keys and commands with existing apps but a custom interface to bintube on mobile devices would be great. Even better would be the capability to transcode and stream videos from Bintube to the device itself.

        Hey - I was the one who requested this. :) I took a look at the blog - Splashtop Remote seems like a very workable solution for accessing BInTube remotely or using it to control BinTube running on an HTPC.

        I realize it would require a ton of development to pull off, but it would be cool to have a web interface like @TimBess suggested. I think the current solution of leveraging Mozilla is a good trajectory, but who knows, maybe the web interface could replace the desktop version altogether. You could use ExtJS for the desktop version and Sencha Touch for a mobile-optimized version (Synology has done a fabulous job writing a Torrent client for their NAS server using ExtJS).

        I suggest instead of this, adding a web interface. Then you could easily control it from any device with a web browser. set stuff to download while your out, and watch it when you get home.

        Maybe WP7 and Samsung Bada also??
