LeapDroid, finally a practical Android on PC

I have tried many Android emulators, but none of them could play TV Plus 2.0 - the best way for watching Chinese TV. This problem is now solved by LeapDroid, now I can watch TV on any one of my monitors, Windowed or full screen. CPU usage is only 50% or so while watching HD TV.

By default, there are two virtual machines installed to  "C:\Users\Username\Documents\Leapdroid\VMs". You may delete one of them to save about 500-800 MB space. The install file, LeapdroidVMInstaller.exe, is copied to "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Leapdroid"; you may delete this file to save another 200MB.

[update] By default it uses too much RAM, so I modified the following line in \Documents\LeapDroid\VMs\vm1.vbox

Memory RAMSize="512" PageFusion="false"
