Miro description
Miro downloads and watches all the best internet TV shows and videos
Miro helps you to download and watch all the best internet TV shows and videos in one powerful application.

Formerly known as ‘Democracy Player’, this new name, logo, and updated version of the software represents the next evolution of the project. We are hoping to reach even more people and build the open video movement.

Miro is more polished and stable than ever. The website has been re-designed with more focus on community and outreach. The new name will be less confusing to everyone who thought Democracy Player was only for videos about politics.

As always, we are a non-profit organization and we build this software because we think there’s a chance to bring television online in a way that’s more open and accessible
than ever. Companies are battling desperately to control video, monopolize users, and build proprietary distribution systems. It’s a dangerous direction for the future of media.

Miro is built to be as open as possible– open source, open-standards, compatible with any host that provides video rss, open to alternate channel guides, and able to search multiple video sites.

We want there to a be minimum of gatekeepers and a maximum of choice for creators and viewers. The future of online video is being defined right now. We need your help to make sure that the open approach is as strong as possible.

Here are some key features of "Miro":

· Play Any Video File
Play virtually any type of video file - Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, XVID, and more. Browse your collection, make playlists, stay organized.

· More HD than Anyone
Your computer screen is a high-definition display. Miro gives you access to more free HD content than any other video player. Sit back and watch gorgeous HD video fullscreen.

· Free Internet TV
Subscribe to any video RSS feed, podcast, or video blog. Explore and subscribe to over 1,500 free channels with the built-in Channel Guide. More channels added daily.

· Download YouTube
Download and save videos from YouTube, Google Video, Dailymotion, and more. You can even save a search term and automatically get new videos as they are posted.

· OPML import and export allows lists of channels to be shared.
