eduMagnet can search and access different online video sites (YouTube, Blip, TeacherTube, RSS, German public TV, etc). Students and pupils can create playlists of lectures and talks and play educational content using an embedded video player (MPlayer). As an OLPC project eduMagnet is developed for the sugar OS, but can also be used in any Linux environment using GTK. Students may synchronize playlists to the online platform eduMagnet.org so that other users can subscribe to their playlists. Access to new online video sites can easily be added using python plugins ("Magnets").
