An unpretentious media player

Democracy Player has 2 things going for it, the first is it's integration with online video streaming from places like YouTube, and it's attitude which is very relaxed. Instead of trying to take over all your media by default, as well as launching at boot time, you can set it to the behaviour you prefer right from the install. It treats streaming media differently as well, downloading all of the video before letting you watch it, and then deleting it about 5 days later to save on space. Read on to see what PC Mechanic thought of this free software.
"The Future of Net Video. That is the tagline for this week's Freeware Frenzy program: Democracy Player. Billed as your
window to the online media scene, Democracy plays and collects nearly any media you throw at it. During the install
process, choose if you want Democracy to handle your various files, and it includes the gamut of torrents, avi, mpg, mp3,
qt, asf, wmv, ogg and more. By default it only handles flash, xvid and annodex files. I thought it was refreshing to see
a program that did not force itself on you and your computer."
