Leonflix multi-platform desktop app for finding movies and TV shows
How does it work?
Leonflix is a modular search tool for content. It crawls video/file hosting websites and can find and return the videos hosted on those sites. You can find more than just movies. Find semester-length video lectures from MIT’s OpenCourseWare, or the complete Khan Academy video lesson series on AP Physics 2, all using the Modules built by the amazing members of our community.
In today’s world of streaming, every time a video changes hands, from the host to the site that shows it, more ads are added. By the time it gets to the viewer, the content has been “stepped on” so many times that it is nearly unwatchable. Leonflix’s novelty is that it extracts only the desired content that streaming sites provide, filtering out all the pop-ups and adware that have been cut into the product.
Ads, tracking, and micro-targeting are not only annoying, in the age of Evercookie, but they are also a violation of our civil liberties. Can you imagine a society that financially rewards those who create fake news designed to trigger anger and hate? Such a society is not only unconducive to democracy, but it is also the society we live in today. Therefore, our mission is to provide a free and modular tool that’s suitable for everything from education to entertainment, without all the adware, bulk data collection, and micro-targeting.
P.S. Since Leonflix is still in beta, users may experience some bugs. We’re actively working to fix those bugs while pushing out new features. You can join our community at r/leonflix to report bugs or make feature suggestions.
