    It seems that Mac version is broken…

    • janet says:

      Can you describe what you mean by broken. Do you have the gatekeeper setting to allow: Mac App Store and identified developers?

      • Ari says:

        I’m experiencing the same issue, and I’ve got the gatekeeper set to “Mac App Store and Identified Developers”.

        To reproduce:

        - Double click the downloaded disc image file
        - Opens up MVC folder view
        - Double click the “Miro Video Converter.dmg” file

        Throws the following error dialog modal:

        “‘Miro Video Converter’ is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.”

        I’ve tried dragging the dmg file into the Applications folder as well and running from there – same result.

        I’m on OSX 10.8.2.

      • Ari says:

        Fixed. I had to set “Allow applications downloaded from” in Gatekeeper to “Anywhere”. Apparently the download does not get recognized as an “Identified Developer”.

        Works now. Just a bit disconcerting.

    We recently acquired a PVR that can play back various video formats, except the format(s) of nearly all files Miro fetches. I recently converted one of the programs (Rachel Maddow Show) to MP4, sent it to my PVR and enjoyed the video on our large-screen LCD.

    I’m wondering if there would be some way to automate the conversion process on the fly, so to speak, so that incoming videos automatically are converted to a format chosen by the user?

    I should add that I can watch the videos via our home wi-fi, so it’s not even necessary for me to physically move the files to the PVR.

    What do you think? Would such an automated process be possible in the future?

    Thanks, and regards,
