Version 0.9.2 of the Democracy has been released. I have been using iTunes to download my video podcasts, but I decided try Democracy.
This application makes if very easy to subscribed to video podcasts. There is an integrated guide of video podcasts, in a easy to navigate way . (Very similar to the iTunes podcast directory.) Downloads can happen at a higher speed, as th video player has built-in bottorrent support.
I don't think that I am going to use this regularly. There doesn't seem to be a way to automatically transfer the videos to an iPod. (This is an annoyance, but the growl notifications default to being sticky, so you have to manually click on them to make them go away.)
