Miro – free, open source internet tv and video player

What the hell is Miro is the question most of you are asking yourself. Well if you wanna watch videos and internet tv kinda stuff and don’t care how much you download then you better get this.

Miro is an open source internet tv client and video player. It can be used to subscribe to channels posting videos on the net. The channels can be found in Miro Guide after you install it. There are 4000+ channels available for subscription and here’s the best part… everything’s absolutely free! By default, miro auto-downloads the newest videos of the channels you subscribe to. You can either shut it off or even make it download all of the videos of the particular channel. Another good feature is that it deletes the downloaded videos 5 days after you download it. Of course, you can choose to keep it if you want or delete it right away too.

Besides that it also offers you to search videos in sites like youtube, google videos, yahoo! videos etc. You can also use it to play videos already on your disk. It plays Windows Media, Quicktime, MPEG 1, 2, 4, H264, AVI, DivX, XviD, Flash, OGM, and lots more.

Oh yeahhh…. The software also has a few pre-subscribed channels. If you can’t get a hang of Miro then you can also download videos off ‘Using Miro’ Its one of the pre-subscribed channels.

About Jayghosh Rao

This person of slightly inadequate height compensates for his not-too-short stature by being extremely annoying. Oh, wait. That's not a positive quality, is it? But heck, that's who I am. I am a decent acquaintance and an annoying friend. I like doing nothing, wasting time on a computer, learning about random things, watching TV, movies, and cartoons, writing an occasional article, talking philosophy and science, home-made food, and, of course, hanging out with friends and annoying them. I am currently pursuing MSc. in Simulation Sciences at German Research School, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen. And I'm loving it.
