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.


Miro 5! (plugins not required)

Monday, May 7th, 2012

If you are already enjoying all the enhancements for device syncing and music support that we brought to you in Miro 4, then just wait until you get your music on Miro 5.

The latest release of Miro will allow you to clean up your music collection by changing titles like Track 01 to their real title with a single click! Unknown Artists are replaced with the actual name.  Browsing your collection is vibrant and organized in the new Album/Artist view.

If you are tired of listening to the same old tracks on your device, it’s time to freshen it all up with Miro 5.

We’ve added eMusic to the Stores section, so you can sample and buy, and keep it all organized in your Miro music library.

There are new options added to device syncing.   You can sync automatically when you connect your device.  Choose to have Miro fill a percentage of your available space with an assortment of music and podcasts based your preferences with the new Auto Fill option.

And don’t forget the conversions. We have updated to the latest and greatest from ffmpeg to convert any media file to apple, android, KindleFire and web-friendly formats.

If you love your internet video, on Miro, it has just gotten better.  We’ve added support for HD downloads from Vimeo. We’ve upgraded libtorrent.  On Windows, we have updated everything on the backend, bringing a cleaner UI, better browsing, and clearer, sharper playback.

Along with the new release, we’ve moved Miro’s Support and Forums to a new platform to help us help you, and to assist you in helping yourselves and others. Have a question, or maybe some answers? Join in to discuss Miro here.

Miro 5 is the media player you need to share with your friends.  If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for?

Best Practices in Fair Use for Online Video

Monday, July 7th, 2008

The Center for Social Media just released a white paper with guidelines for using copyrighted material in online video. Fair use is often misunderstood (and rightly so, it’s a complex law), so I’m pleased to have a set of clear guidelines to point people to.

This is an especially great resource for anyone doing remixes, mashups, or other pop-culture derivatives. I recommend the PDF version, as the formatting makes it much easier to digest.
