Miro 6 (previously known as Democracy Player and DTV) is a free HD video player. It can play almost any video file and offers over 6,000 free internet TV shows and video podcasts.
The player has a simple, gorgeous interface designed for fullscreen HD video. Since Miro downloads most videos, you can take your shows with you, even on an airplane. Quite simply, Miro is a better way to watch all the video you care about.
Best of all, this player is 100% free and open source, developed by a non-profit organization and volunteers around the world.
Unlike your browser, Miro’s built for HD. The built-in Guide connects you to thousands of free High Definition video shows. Miro downloads video fast and stores it on your local computer for a level of quality that is often impossible on streaming video websites (even the ones that call themselves ‘HD’). Fullscreen, HD video on Miro is like nothing you’ve ever seen online.
Miro can play virtually any type of video file – Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, XVID, and more. When it comes to video podcasts, Miro goes far beyond iTunes by letting you subscribe to BitTorrent RSS feeds, with one of the fastest torrent downloaders in the world (it’s called ‘libtorrent’).
Instead of separate programs… for downloading torrent files and then watching them, Miro is one integrated experience. And it makes BitTorrent RSS dead simple – when a new episode is available, it will download automatically and be ready to watch. If you are trying to teach someone how to use BitTorrent, Miro is the easiest place to start. And Miro’s torrent performance is powered by the screamingly fast open-source libtorrent engine, which is why we’re also a favorite of hard-core torrenters.
Search, download, and save videos… from YouTube, Google Video, Blip, and more. You can even save a search term and automatically get new videos as they are posted. With YouTube’s new HD support, the video quality can be incredible.
Miro is based on XULRunner, and is free and open source software. 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).
