Download and Play Videos in High Definition with Open Source Miro Video Player

miro_ui.jpgMiro is a free and open source internet TV platform and video player that can play virtually any video including, Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, and XVID.

The real strength of this application however, is the ability you now have, with Miro installed, to subscribe to any video RSS feed, podcast, or Video Site/Blog such as YouTube, Google Video, and Yahoo Video, through channels. When a channel is created in Miro, the program checks for updates periodically and will retrieve content for you through a HTTP download, or the included BitTorrent client.

Given that your computer screen is, in reality, a high-definition display, you can watch these videos in HD full screen. Pretty neat.

To make it easier for you to find content for viewing, the included channel guide service is comprised of more than 1,800 channels which are searchable by category, keyword, popularity, or language.

Some of Miro’s great features include:

  • Built-in Channel Guide – explore hundreds of free Internet television channels.
  • Bit torrent download
  • Manageable Hard Drive folders
  • Resume playback
  • Channel surfing
  • Organizing video feeds by topic
  • Video sharing and hosting
  • Creating videos

 

This program continues to receive high praise from video geeks, and it’s worth adding to your entertainment applications.

  4. I could not agree more. Miro is a great tool. There is however a fundamental issue with distributing TV exclusively to PCs: it is too complex for most users. We are just conducting the beta testing for 100dimensions TV, a simpler alternative to Miro, in several countries. We find that most users are overwhelmed by all things technological (let’s start with double clicking!). Hopefully, things will improve once we release our direct-to-TV no-computer involved product.

  5. but can I edit hd and play it on my pc?
