Miro Public Preview 1 (0.9.8)

Miro formerly 'Democracy Player' is an Internet video player that allows you to choose from a variety of channels, subscribe to video feeds and view them with the integrated player. It can automatically download videos from RSS-based "channels", manage them and play them. It is based on XULRunner, and is free and open source software. Miro is supported on Windows, Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux, and integrates an RSS aggregator, a BitTorrent client, and VLC media player or Xine Media Player under GNU/Linux.

At least, Democracy Player suggested its intention. Miro doesn't.

Well, intentions or not it works very very fine.
