Miro Public Preview 1 Released
Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 9:52 AM EST
Posted by: Brian

The Participatory Culture Foundation has released the first public beta of Miro, a free open-source desktop video application formerly known as Democracy Player. "This new name, logo, and updated version of the software represents the next evolution of the project. We are hoping to reach even more people and build the open video movement. The software is more polished and stable than ever. The website has been re-designed with more focus on community and outreach. The new name will be less confusing to everyone who thought Democracy Player was only for videos about politics," writes Nicholas Reville of the Participatory Culture Foundation. The software is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The Mac version requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later and QuickTime 7, but some video formats require Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

New features in Public Preview 1 (0.9.8):
  Keyboard shortcuts on all platforms. This should allow remote controls to be configured to control Miro.
  Improved system tray functionality on Windows, including a context menu.
  Added a new 'report a bug' menu item.
  Adds Veoh.com as a search engine.

Bug fixes:
  Fixed behavior when maximizing on Windows (won't cover up the taskbar).
  Smarter importing and folder watching to avoid adding audio files.
  Removed Yahoo as a search engine, since most results did not link to enclosures.
  Fixed a memory leak.
  Fixed several unicode errors.
  Fixed miscounting of new and unwatched items in folders.
  Minor UI fixes, including name changes to sidebar items and new Miro Guide logo.
  Many other small fixes.
