It does work for video now.
It doesn't support all the agencies supported by the Windows version and lacks some of the features, but has all the basic functionality needed to work with the video.

It doesn't read xmp on video files!  Useless for video

Well the program offers its own tools for tagging files. After tagging the videos in the program your metadata will be later automatically transferred to the agency websites during the submission process which is the key time saver.

Dreamstime, Deposit, and 123rf doesn't read metadata edited in program! Metadata will be later automatically transferred later.... when? I'm using xmp for jpg preview of video files

Yes agencies do not automatically read the metadata from the videos.
So the program transfers the metadata during the submission process which is a separate process happening when the program finds the files on the websites.

A feature that might be worth considering (or perhaps I have missed a setting!)

I was uploading 60 images to 15 images and the power to the house failed.  When I restarted everything, Stock Submitter did not know which images had already been uploaded as I think this is saved to the files once the upload is completed and I am asked whether I should save the changes to the metadata. It would be good if the system automatically saved the upload status of each file once the upload to that agency is complete so that if the power fails in the future it won't try to re-upload images that already on the agency.

That would create unnecessary disk load. I would strongly recommend against that even if there was such an option.
However, you can enable autosave feature which can make everything except last few minutes to be up to date even in case of the power fail.
