Miro is a free/open source video player that automates subscribing to feeds of videos that are fetched using Bittorrent and then played in a flexible player that supports practically every format. Miro works on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
Miro 3.5 was recently with an option to easily convert media to various video/audio formats for your media devices, better HTTP downloading performance using libcurl, option to specify the font style and encoding for the subtitles and bug fixes which include faster torrent restarting, proxy/http authentication and more. Miro can play virtually any type of video file – Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, XVID, and more.
Install Miro 3.5 in Ubuntu
To instal in Ubuntu 9.10 / 10.04 / 10.10, open the terminal and type
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pcf/miro-releases sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install miro
Using the default Ubuntu packages (ffmpeg), Miro 3.5 can’t convert to most of the media so it will fail when trying to convert a video. To correct this error you need to install libavcodec.
sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra-52
You can find Miro under Applications–>Sound & Video–>Miro Internet TV
