I have used Veoh TV to download for a while now but the other day downloaded the new Veoh Web Player Beta as well. When I download now it is the Web Player that does it not Veoh TV as it was previously. My question is do I need both these programs installed. If I uninstall Veoh TV will the Web Player still work or do I need Veoh TV in order for the Web Player to work?.

The only way to know for sure is to try it and find out.
Keep in mind that a Beta version is not a final release and will still contain some bugs in it

I think the player is part of Veoh TV but the download/upload ability isn't part of the standalone player. I haven't downloaded or uploaded anything from Veoh lately so I'm not sure if they've changed it recently. But I only have Veoh TV and not the player you're talking about. Why don't you check their FAQs for clues? It could be the same product under a different name.

The Veoh Web Player is a new release from them from about two weeks ago which is the reason for my query. I looked through there FAQ but no mention of it there. I will try and post the question there as well. Thanks for the replies.

This from the Veoh blog tells the story. When you watch a long video on the Veoh website, it shows a five minute preview and produces a button that opens the Veoh Player so you can watch the whole video. This new player is web based and eliminates the five minute preview. I can see a use for both products because with the original Veoh player, you can search multiple video sites and watch videos in full screen. This looks like it might be designed to only be used on the Veoh site but I'm not sure about that. I don't think this web player includes upload capability either.
