Miro Video Converter is the first WebM / VP8 converter!

May 21st, 2010 by Nicholas Reville

I am delighted to announce that we have just released Miro Video Converter 2.0, with support for the new open WebM (vp8) video format that Google debuted this week. We believe that WebM can help us all escape from the traps of closed, patented video formats and we’re excited to offer the first free WebM converter that we know of. WebM is still in very early stages, but we think it has a ton of potential ahead of it.

And that’s not all! This release of Miro Video Converter also includes:

  • Improved audio and video quality on conversions.
  • More conversions options — support for new devices, including iPad.
  • Remembers your last format selected.
  • Can send apple conversions directly to itunes.
