i haven't used the windows version, but i think it's an RSS reader with a video player to play the feeds. i watch lots of internet TV - Digg, Commandn, Hak5, Rocketboom, Geek Entertainment TV etc etc, so it would be good to have something like this. Plus it has loads of feeds preinstalled, i think :confused: and it looks cool :cool:

There seems to be a link on their website that gives a howto for running an alpha version of this program (but without installing it) on Ubuntu:

Otherwise, it looks like their working on a linux port. Otherwise, I agree... it looks cool to me. :)

oh, i didn't notice :rolleyes: thanks for the links. i just had a look at some of the programs they have and some are for stuff you have to pay for, abit like itunes suppose. but, i looks like it could still be used for RSS feeds for stuff which is free too :cool:

PenguinTV? (http://penguintv.sourceforge.net/)

I haven't used it myself, but I am planning to give it a whirl.

Further snooping around has revealed an Ubuntu beta for the Democracy player. Get it here (http://www.getdemocracy.com/downloads/ubuntu.php).

Wow, thanks for the links :cool: i'll install it tomorrow. has anyone tried it?

i might try straw too, i need something for all the feeds i have, just something to organise everything into groups so feeds are easier to look through.
