The only video player you need.
Free and open-source, because open media matters.
Developing so that watching internet video channels will be as easy as watching TV and broadcasting a channel will be open to everyone.
I've tried so many similar programs and have always been left wanting. Miro has my vote and is the first truly enjoyable experience I've had with this type of interface. Editor
Play Any Video File. Browse your video collection, make playlist, stay organized... and it does this very well.
Play HD Your computer is a high definition screen and Miro gives you access to more HD than any other video player.
Internet TV : to any video rss feed, podcast or video blog. Explore and subscribe to over 1,500 free channels with the built-in channel guide.
Download and save from YouTube, Google Video, Daily Motion and more. You can even save a search term and get new videos as they are posted.
Bit Torrent : any BitTorrent file fast, and then watch the video.
Miro is built to be as open as possibleľ open source, open-standards, compatible with any host that provides video rss, open to alternate channel guides, and able to search multiple video sites.
One Note: I'm not sure you want to have Miro launch when your computer starts. This is recommended so the program can continue downloading content you may have choosen to view. That sounds great and for the most part is not a problem. as a matter of fact, I'm writing this and Miro is working in the background... the problem is; it's huge. Taking 219 MB of memory. Now if you've got the memory (I'm now on a 1GB Laptop) doing text type work, browsing, email, etc. would not be a problem but I don't think I'd want Miro running in the background while editing multi-media.
But I'm loving it. So quick and easy. You gotta get this.
