Miro Media Player Gets an Overhaul

,----[ Quote ]
| I still reach for VLC Media Player when I want an open source player that I 
| know will handle almost any video file format that I throw at it. It's out in 
| a much overhauled new version as well, and is particularly good for 
| broadcasting video content online. However, the community behind Miro has 
| wisely focused it on playing and organizing video and audio content from all 
| around the web, especially videocasts and podcasts. It really shines at that, 
| especially this new version.

Cutest funding move ever? Adopt a line of Miro code

,----[ Quote ]
| Those behind the open source Internet video player Miro have launched a new
| adoption system! No, you won't be adopting babies or kittens, or even polar
| bears in Antarctica—instead, users can "adopt" a line of source code from
| Miro for $4 in order to help support the continued development of the
| software.


Mini Review: Miro 2.0

 ,----[ Quote ]
| I like Miro quite a bit. It does a decent job of pulling together the
| functionality of a lot of separate application and combining them into a
| media center with a clean UI.
| A few additions, perhaps collected in an "Advanced" tab under Options would
| allow the user to control database updating, add/edit/delete search engine
| sites, select an external player application, control browser privacy, etc.

| portals like Hulu and CBS.com to the sidebar.



Announcing Miro 1.2 - A Major Update

,----[ Quote ]
| We’ve just released a major update to Miro, version 1.2.


There are two major improvements in this update.

,----[ Quote ]
| First, we have dramatically improved performance for torrent downloading and
| we offer more settings and control (thanks to libtorrent). With this update,
| Miro is truly a powerhouse for torrent feeds, if I do say so myself. Torrents
| 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.      


Miro 1.0 is Here

,----[ Quote ]
| I am incredibly excited to announce the launch of Miro 1.0.
| With this launch, we are ready to build a movement for truly open video.
| We’re on a mission, we have a world-class product, we have an amazing
| community, and more and more open channels are being published every day.
| It’s the right time.

Watch online video? Get Miro

,----[ Quote ]
| In short, Miro makes it so much easier to find and to get video content that
| you won't want to switch to another app just to watch it.


Miro (Democracy Player) for Linux Reviewed

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.
