NowUSeeIt Player

NowUSeeIt Player seems to be a failed attempt at releasing a profitable online video player that could be used as a standalone program to watch online videos. Removing this program is what you might want to do now, because it looks like it was abandoned halfway through the development process. NowUSeeIt Player does not even have a graphical user interface. However, its website features images depicting how it should look like and many people who like bells and whistles on their machines are tempted to get it. We think that there is a reason why this product was released prior to its completion. It might be used to secretly display subtle advertising in order to generate money to continue this program’s development or for other purposes. Whatever the case may be, NowUSeeIt Player has no reason to remain on your PC, because it does not work.

Contrary to popular belief, NowUSeeIt Player is an old program. Its Terms of Use and Privacy Policy date back as far as June 11, 2014. Still, this program is alive and kicking, and we have found that it can be downloaded from its dedicated download website at However, we are mostly concerned with the fact that it was and still might be bundled with malicious installers that feature adware and browser hijackers.

NowUSeeIt Player is owned by Verti Technology Group, Inc. It is not a very well-known software developer that needs further investigation. As far as we can tell, its software does not seem to be malicious. Still, this developer has managed to release a non-functional program that does not play online videos at all. If you get it with a software bundle, you might not notice its presence and, therefore, this program could readily display commercial promotions.

If NowUSeeIt Player actually worked, it should be a standalone online video player that does not require a web browser. So users could indulge in viewing videos online right there on the desktop. Of course, this program would be mainly focused on That being said, it is obvious that it would struggle to play videos from other websites if such a function was to be built in. The reality, however, is very different from the presented façade. Nowhere on the website does it state that NowUSeeIt Player is incomplete and will not work, which is deceptive and unfair. This program’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy indicate that in the future it might display commercial advertisements in the form of banners, coupons, and so on. We are not sure if this “future” has already come. But there is no need to experience it firsthand.

So, because NowUSeeIt Player is only good for showing commercial advertisements and does not play online videos, we suggest removing it. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel and click the Uninstall button. Even if this program does not show commercial advertisements, you should remove it anyway, because it has a process running in the background which uses your computer’s resources.

    NowUSeeIT won't let me remove it from my computer! When I click uninstall it asks me if I want to update it. I also can't manually remove the program from C: either because it says the program is still running.
