Revision3, TED and Deutsche Welle to Use Miro Open-Source Video Players for
Distributing Programming

,----[ Quote ]
| Deutsche Welle, Revision3 and TED today announced that each will launch 
| open-source desktop video players based on the popular Miro internet TV 
| platform. These new players will give viewers direct access to high-quality 
| programming from their desktops.

| we offer more settings and control (thanks to libtorrent). With this update,

| are still a difficult and mysterious technology for many users, despite the 
| huge bandwidth savings they provide to publishers. We aim to make your 
| torrent experience seamless at worst and invisible at best.

| At the end of the day, Miro has been one of my favorite methods of 
| downloading, maintaining and enjoying user created content. It's been a 
| source of joy and discovery for me personally, and I only wish to see them 
| gain a better focus on their future direction. Remember, non-profits can 
| indeed, generate a profit. It's just a matter of reinvesting those funds into 
| the project to better see through the mission of the group as a whole.
