Miro – a free, opensource video platform has recently been released. It’s a piece of software that allows you to download, manage, and watch video content and it runs on Microsoft Window, Mac OS X and Linux.
Their pitch is “Miro: turn your computer into an internet TV… watch free internet video channels and play any video file”.
You’ll need a broadband connection to get the full benefit of the ‘channels’ but I’ve been using it for a week or so now, and I’m very impressed. It’s good because it’s opensource software but it’s also good because it’s software that works.
Miro is a video tool that rolls a whole host of functions into one, including:
Miro also includes tagging, sharing, import/export and search features.
If you want a tool that gets the job done, and want to support the opensource software movement: Go get Miro.
