Democracy Internet TV Platform

The Participatory Culture Foundation is on a roll. They just released today the first Windows version of their popular DTV software, which they renamed Democracy player.

Democracy is actually a complete internet TV platform to watch, share and “broadcast” video on the net. It is based on four main technologies: Democracy player, Broadcast Machine, Channel guide and the Video Bomb web application.
 
I think that DTV was a better name for the player since it made a direct and “punchy” reference to the more traditional broadcasting world of Digital Television.
 
The metallic black GUI looks great. It’s quite similar to the recently released iTunes “killer” Songbird. The application crashed when I first ran it but was fine the second time. I also had trouble downloading some video files (the download simply stopped).
 
Anyways, it looks to me like all these applications show the way forward. Great work PCF!
