Building, Building, Building

October 6th, 2008 by Nicholas Reville

You may have noticed that there haven’t been a lot of big updates to Miro or the Miro Guide recently. Don’t worry, it’s the good reason, not the bad one– we’re building major updates that are getting close to launch. First you’ll see a totally revamped Miro Guide, then you’ll get Miro 2.0 (a HUGE step forward) and with Miro 2.0 there will be new features in the Miro Guide that take advantage of new features.

If you’d like to help us test our new toys, take a look at our testing FAQ and dive in!

    Exciting! Looking forward to it. Do you have any good roadmap or anything like it if one want to look what might go into 2.0?

  2. lazyj says:

    by using the nightlies now, will that database work when 2.0 is officially released?

  3. William Maggos says:

    very excited too!

    im hoping for a lean-back interface option w/ use of an Apple remote & support for Shoutcast TV.

    johan — we don’t really have a roadmap or feature list up yet, though you could poke around the bug tracker and see what’s been getting done.

    lazyj — we aren’t planning for it not to work, but of course the nightlies are unstable and you do take the risk of losing your database.

    thanks nicholas, do you happen to have a rough timeline for the 2.0 release?

    My miro 1.2.7 database has corrupted 3 times, and I’ve lost all of my subscriptions/database (movies are still in the archive folder of course).

    So I’m really hoping the 2.0 database schema is more rock solid this time…. i’ll take my chances on the nightlies over the 1.2.7 branch :)

    lazyj– that sucks, sorry to hear it! have you filed a bug yet? we definitely want to make sure that’s fixed. our goal is to have it out before the end of the year, but more importantly we want to make sure it’s great.

    Will the old version still work with the new guide?

  9. Dean says:


    Yep, the old Miro will work with the new guide!

    Miro fan from India here. It’s an amazing piece of software. I hope 2.0 will include more features already available in VLC — e.g. right-click on full screen video and change the aspect ratio, adjust brightness/contrast settings, crop etc.

  11. chext0r says:

    Another great feature would be an extra button next to the thumbnail which allows you to open the video in a new VLC window (“Open with VLC”).

    Also, I hope it automatically renames videos to their RSS title. That is absolutely required!!! ;) The filenames used now are quite cryptic.

Looking for something?
