Watch the Olympics with Miro

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Go Team!!  Miro 5.0.2 is released and contains a few important bug fixes.  And just in time too!

As someone who doesn’t own a TV, I was a bit dismayed once I started researching my options for watching the Olympics this year.  I had no problem driving to town to watch some key matches of the Euro 2012, but the Olympics are non-stop events that go on for weeks.

There are numerous posts detailing the requirements for the NBC Olympic coverage which are not super helpful if you don’t live in the USA.

However digging a bit further I found the Eurovisionsports stream and some podcasts to keep me up to date on all the action and commentary.

For your viewing pleasure – I put together an OPML file of some key websites for streaming, an events schedule and some podcasts so that you don’t miss any of the action or features.

To watch the Olympics with Miro:  Download Miro-5.0.2 and this OPML file.

Once Miro is running from the Sidebar menu, choose Import Podcasts (OPML),

Sidebar -> Import Podcasts (OPML)

browse to the downloaded OPML file.  The website and podcasts will be added to your sidebar.  Enjoy!

Help update the Miro translations

Friday, July 13th, 2012

We are in the process of putting together a Miro 5.0.2 release that includes a few bug fixes; one of those requires updates to the translated strings.

Chimel, who works on the French localization has posted a nice summary of the changes.

Here is the getting started info for translators.  You can post questions, see announcements and discuss in our new Translators forum.
