Miro 5 released with more synchronisation options
The Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) has released the next major version of the Miro internet media application. Miro 5.0 improves the syncing functionality of the application and adds several other improvements, mostly concerning video playback.
Miro can now download HD versions of videos from Vimeo, wherever those are available. Transferring of media files to playback devices has further improved as Miro can now automatically sync files, and users can set what media type they would like Miro to fill the remaining space on their player with. The program can now also delete files from the device that have already expired in Miro. Another helpful addition is that Miro 5.0 will no longer convert videos to another format when the device it will be synced to actually supports the original format.
Miro can download and play video and audio files from several sources on the internet and is able to import podcast feeds as well. When the application is first started up, it already has a comprehensive guide of shows across many different topics and interests.
A list of all the features in the new version, including multiple bug fixes, can be found in the official release notes on the PCF web site. Miro 5.0 is licensed under the GPLv2 and can be downloaded for Windows, Mac OS X and several Linux distributions.
