Quite simply, Miro is a free application for channels of internet video (also known as 'video podcasts and video rss). Miro is designed to be easy to use and to give you an elegant fullscreen viewing experience.
There are thousands of free internet video channels that you can watch. You'll be able to download all the videos that each channel offers and when new ones are released, Miro will grab them automatically.
a. On Windows, Miro will now generate thumbnails for any
file that you download or add to your library. It makes for a much nicer
browsing experience. If a channel already provides a thumbnail for a video, Miro
will show that instead.
b. Miro now shows the channel icon instead of the generic
video icon each video in a channel. It’s a simple change that makes a big
c. If you search for a video in your Library or a channel
and then start playing it, Miro will remember the search term when you stop
playing the video. Fixes a small annoyance.
d. Miro now has the ability to add alternate channel guides
and initiate individual video downloads with a 1-click button. We’ll be
putting up 1-click button makers for these features soon and we’ll be
integrating this functionality into the Miro Guide.
e. We’ve spent some time improving the first-time user
experience. When you run Miro for the first time, you’ll see this
page which has a quick video overview and you’ll be able to subscribe to
some batches of channels on specific themes, like Sports, News, Food, etc. We
hope it will help new users get their bearings a little more easily.
f. At the request of video bloggers, we’ve put a
‘permalink’ below the video playback area. This makes it easy to go to that
video post and leave a comment. Someday we’d love to have integrated
g. Some install functionality that makes our Co-Branded
Miro service possible.
h. Compatibility with OSX Leopard and Ubuntu Gutsy.
i. Lots of bug fixes and small tweaks.
