    :( unfortunatly this version doesn’t work very well, i tried installing the deb and from source and both times the player
    (a) got rid off all my channels and replaced them with the defaults and (b) crashed whenever i tried to play anything

    another thing i don’t like about this version is the search bar at the bottom left, there doesn’t seem to be anyway of hiding it, and it just seems unnecessary when theres already a search function built in

    it would be nice if there was a link to older versions of the player on the download page, luckily i managed to find a deb for 0.9.1 on this page http://home.eng.iastate.edu/~superm1/dists/edgy/other/

    Debian testing (etch) repository also has 0.9.1. I hope it will eventually upgrade to 0.9.2 (love them system-wide automatic upgrades ( :D Grin )!)

    The Ubuntu package says it is for Dapper — is this package supposed to work for Edgy too?

    Installing on my updated dist-upgraded Dapper install and I get dependency faux pas’ all over the place. Tried it on the laptop and got the same deal. IS this just me having a senior moment or is it happening to other Dapper young turks?

  11. Niels Walta says:

    Same problem as mentioned above, running Edgy and Democracy Player now refuses to play several videos that used to work in the previous version.

  12. Niels Walta says:

    Me again. The work-around posted in http://forum.getmiro.com/viewtopic.php?id=882 seems to do the trick for me for now. I just hope the implementation gets fixed for the next release.
