Miro 1.2.2

Miro (previously known as Democracy Player and DTV) is an Internet television application developed by the Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF). Miro can automatically download videos from RSS-based "channels", manage them and play them. Miro is designed to mesh with other PCF products such as Video Bomb, a social tagging video website, and the Channel Channel, a TV guide for internet television.

Miro lets you watch Internet videos like you watch TV. Download and watch all the best internet TV shows and videos in one powerful application. New channels arrive daily in the built-in Channel Guide. Stop squinting at tedious web videos - sit back and watch big, high resolution videos one after another. It's so easy to use that you'll be watching interesting videos in moments.

Miro is based on XULRunner, and is free and open source software. Miro is supported on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and integrates an RSS aggregator, a BitTorrent client, and a media player (VLC media player under Windows, QuickTime under Mac OS X or Xine Media Player under Linux).
