Democracy Player 0.9.0 - one step closer to world do... a very cool Internet video/podcast application

Democracy Player 0.9.0 has been released yesterday, which has been announced in quite a number of places already, e.g. Boing Boing.

It's available for Mac, Windows, and Linux; if you're on Debian unstable the installation is as simple as apt-get install democracyplayer (I uploaded the new packages yesterday, they should have reached all mirrors by now).

If you want to know what this is all about, but you're reluctant to install yet another program, check out this screencast (MOV, 37MB) which shows the basic functionality and user interface and discusses some of the new features... I think you'll like it.

You can use it for all kinds of video blogs and podcasts, it'll download and play almost anything with an RSS feed.

usable behind proxy?

hi,

does it support to configure a proxy? Seems like it doesnt
honour $HTTP_PROXY and after a short look i couldnt find any
part reg. Proxy configuration within the settings too.

$HTTP_PROXY

Democracy Player doesn't honor $HTTP_PROXY yet, unfortunately. But it's on the TODO list.
