Miro 2.5.4 released!

December 4th, 2009 by janet

Miro 2.5.4 fixes bugs on all platforms and makes some key updates on Windows that improve torrent performance and compatibility for Windows 7.   All users should update.

In particular, this release fixes some data issues, including a case where invalid torrent files could cause database problems.  Additionally we have updated to vlc 1.0.3 which addresses video quality issues on Windows 7 and we have updated libtorrent which should greatly improve torrent performance on all versions of Windows.

The complete list of bug fixes is available in the release notes.

You can download this version directly from our website.  We will turn on the automatic updates for windows and mac in a few days.

We strongly recommend that all users update now.

    Thanks for updating! I had found the video playback quality under Windows 7 so bad I had to play the files via Windows Media Player.

    Thanks for still providing us with a great product!

    It keeps telling me that it is updating my database then it says there isn't enough disk space to upgrade and to try deleting some files. (but from where) the program fails to start.

  4. @HenryDubb says:

    Couldn't tell, was there any updates for Ubuntu. Sites still not working.

  5. sheemer says:

    This update seems really really happy to me and perhaps other Japanese fans. For these months and over several version updates (since before the drastic change of the interface), Miro did not work in my environment because it evoked some euc_jp related error and virtually unusable. Now 2.5.4 looks healthy but I have a concern. The changelog doesn't have any mention about it and I have a worry that this normalization is just an accidental fix done by a patch for another problem. Please check this if this fix is not included or intended specifically. During that bad time I had to use LangSwitch.app to start Miro.
    Thanks for your update!

    "unknown publisher" on update 2.5.4?!

  7. John says:

    When I tried to install Miro for the first time ever, I got an error message saying it needed an administrator account which is the type of account being used – Windows Xp with automatic updates. I also got the unkown publisher issue for update 2.5.4

  8. sheemer says:

    Well same error recurred. Now Miro is basically unusable in Japanese environment. It's something related with eucjp encoding. If I use LangSwitch.app and start Miro under the app, it goes fine. Here is the console message:
    My environment is MacOS 10.2.6 on Dell mini 10v (Yes it's hackintosh.)

  10. pbn says:

    Still having the miro database error as well, is there a fix in the works? Miro used to work great before the latest update.

    • jed_pcf says:

      pbn – it would be helpful if you could send me an email detailing the database error you are seeing. You can use the link in the comment above to locate your database and logs files and send them to jed@pcutlure.org.
