Miro 1.0 - Internet TV

    Description from LORA:
    Miro (formerly Democracy Player) is a free, open video platform that allows you to view not only video files from your disks, but also online TV.

    Among the main features are:
    # Watch videos in MPEG, Quicktime, AVI, H.264, Divx, Windows Media, Flash Video
    # Create playlists and small preview icons, rating system
    # Ability to download torrents
    # Search and download YouTube videos, Yahoo !, Google Video, Blip
    # Support for RSS and podcasts. It can find a video even if only a link to a file is found in the tape
    # Setting the limit on the disk for downloaded files

    I read the description and was delighted - well, finally!
    The program for ala amarok combine for video only has been released. I have no ideological hatred of xulrunner, so I immediately installed it. What I saw was a little disappointing.

    The frank disadvantages of the local collection:
    - the video was piled up in one pile
    - there were no tags
    - the ogg sound files were mistaken for video
    - the complete lack of video viewing settings
    - thumbnail for some reason is not present on all files (although they play fine)

    I'm not very spoiled watching an online video, but noticed the following youtube search minuses:
    - no tag search
    - no ratings

    And the biggest minus is the almost complete lack of settings for anything. The program looks very poor. So far, Miro can only be used to watch videos from youtube, if for some reason you do not want to use a browser. A plus of miro can be considered the ability to quickly get a link to a video file to save it for the future.
    And of course, there were some open bugs:
