After presenting here on this blog Miro 2.5 RC 1, and Miro 2.5 RC 2, the final release of the popular open source, cross-platform internet media browser and player, Miro is now available for download with its release notes that strangely have never been available with the Beta versions.
The big thing in this major update is certainly the Podcast Section. Miro 2.5 has improved speed, 2 – 4 times faster than previous. Miro 2.5 offers a direct link to download video from YouTube when you have it as sidebar site.
- Better interface for audio playback.
- New Library interface with ‘Video’, ‘Audio’, and ‘Other’ sections
- New keyboard shortcuts for virtually all functions (great for programming a remote control)
