We’re delighted to announce a new version of Miro Community (0.9), which brings a host of new features and themes to the table. The software is incredibly powerful for bringing together video from all over the web into a cohesive website that can have a look and feel that suits a community or organization.

Miro Community is currently powering over 250 video sites and continues to grow—the software is free and open source and we offer hosted versions here.

A few highlights:

Enhanced Performance - Miro Community now checks for new videos from your sources more often, and we’ve made a variety of changes to make the sites run more smoothly.

New blog-like theme (“blue theme”) offers editors the ability to do blog-like commentary for video items and highlights user activity such as recent comments.

Categories hover menu in navigation bar – You no longer need to be in Category theme to have the categories accessible on the front page.

Increased Chrome Support - Site thumbnails now look crisp and clean in Chrome as well as other browsers.

Custom Themes for Premium Users – Premium users can now upload their own Django templates to the site, allowing them more flexibility in site design.

reCAPTCHA and default comment moderationreCAPTCHA is now included on all video pages, making it much more difficult for spammers to leave comments.

Reorganized Administrative Area: We’ve pared down the administrative area to make it easier to navigate.

These are just a few of the many improvements.

To try out Miro Community, go to http://www.mirocommunity.org/signup/ and create a site today.

    On my site I do a series called ‘Album Of The Day’ and I put up a video for every album. Sometimes though it is a right pain in the bum to find a video that can be embedded, does this mean I will be able to find the video on a whole load of different video sites until one works? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick completely?
