The Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) today has released a Mac-only beta of its DIY Internet TV software that may bring moving images to podcasting - and make it simple, too.

The open-source software has been built to make watching and developing video transmissions within RSS feeds easy. Linux and Windows versions of the software are being developed.

It offers users a built-in way to subscribe to video channels. The software also integrates with BitTorrent, so users can download those large video files without munching the feed provider's bandwidth.

The developer's admit that the beta is buggy, but such flaws are being addressed.

The PCF has also built publishing software that lets video-makers broadcast full-screen video.

To launch the product, PCF is offering $1,000 to the designer of the best user interface, and another $300 to the designer of the best logo.
