Miro media player update

The Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) has released an update to its media player, Miro 2.0. A fresh widget-based interface has been added, with an option to play any video in an external window. The developers claim that the update is faster, more responsive and uses less system memory than the previous version. Users can add streaming sites such as Hulu to the sidebar, along with download sites including Archive.org and legaltorrents.com. Playlists, list views and audio support have also been improved.

The program can be used to watch full-screen HD content, with support for a variety of formats including MPEG, Quicktime, AVI, H.264, Divx, Windows Media, Flash Video and others. The program interface provides options to migrate video libraries to different locations such as an external hard drive. Channels can be grouped by topic or placed into customizable folders, with an option to automatically search the computer to find any video files that can be added to the library.

Miro 2.0 is available for free and compatible with Mac OS X, Windows and Ubuntu operating systems.
