video podcasts in the iPhone iPod application

The iPhone iPod ‘podcast’ section used to list video podcasts, but only played their audio tracks, which was odd. Now (as of the 2.2 firmware) it’ll play video podcasts as well, which is nice. For a start, I can take the ‘video’ button off the tab bar at the bottom and free up a slot for something more important.

Weirdly, it’ll play the video in portrait mode (as well as landscape mode), whereas the video section of the application will still only play them in landscape mode.
