Miro is a rad new open-source, non-proprietary desktop media player with tons of functionality – it plays any video file format, allows video feed subscriptions, features 1,500 free channels, and has a built-in BitTorrent feature. I’ve been messing with it for about five minutes and am completely sold.
The best part? Miro is nonprofit-run and a vocal proponent of open media – the Participatory Culture Foundation created and maintains the application. According to the Miro site, “open video will only have a real impact if it can reach a mass audience”:
Agreed. The Participatory Culture Foundation site also features tutorials for creating and publishing your own Internet video.
