How to Convert and Transfer Videos to Kindle Fire

Friday, December 23rd, 2011
With Miro 4.0.4, released today, you can automatically convert and copy videos and music to Kindle Fire. Here’s how:

1. Open Miro. (Download Miro here if you don’t have it.)

2. Connect your Kindle Fire with a USB cable to your computer and it will appear in the ‘Connect’ tab in Miro.

3. Drag any videos or music to the Kindle Fire in the Miro sidebar and they will automatically convert to the right size and format and sync.

That’s it!

Note that videos that aren’t purchased from Amazon will be viewable in the ‘Gallery’ app on your Kindle Fire, not in the ‘Video’ tab.

we also put together this simple site explaining how it works: Sync Video and Audio to Kindle Fire

Miro Needs Your Help. Really!

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

We need your help to keep Miro alive. To those of you that have already donated this year– thank you so much. If you haven’t given yet, here’s why it’s urgent.

Over the past year, PCF, the non-profit that makes Miro, has had some big successes. We’ve won a Tech Award for advancing equality and an award from the FCC for innovation in accessibility for the deaf and hard of hearing. Miro has taken huge strides forward, adding full music support, Android syncing, and much more– Miro is now used by millions of people every month!

We believe deeply in the power of open tools. But our very small budget depends on donations from users and we are facing serious shortfall going into 2012. Can you make a donation?

Yes, I can donate to Miro

After you give, you’ll see a list of new features that we are considering: please vote on what you’d most like to see in the next version of Miro.

We are already hard at work on a major update to Miro that will bring exciting new features and major performance improvements. Miro is built by one of the smallest software teams in the world for a project of this scale, just a few very underpaid developers. But even with our tiny (and incredibly talented team), it does take some money to build and offer Miro for free to everyone.

Our request this month is very real– we just can’t afford to keep making Miro without more user support. If you can make a donation of any size today, it will help ensure that Miro can live on into next year and beyond.

Thank you for reading and, as always, for using Miro. And please, if you possibly can, make a donation today.
