    Tried to donate $40.00 with a visa card but was only charged $1.00. Tried again to send $39.00 and was only charged another dollar. Nicholas you need to fix this script if you want to make your 50k goal.
    Best of luck

    This program had trouble importing my itunes library. It was also very clunky and slow. I really want it to work, but it just doesn’t for me on my mac.

    Also worth mentioning, its based on XULRunner a “RIA” worthy of more attention (and a better name)

    I downloaded Miro on the good word from the Boing-ers and I’ve been nothing but disappointed in it. Before they go asking for my money, they should make something that truly does all the things they say it does: scraping YouTube? What about all the videos I search for that don’t pop up? Is there some proprietary issue? As for the RSS, I was unimpressed. iTunes (which I dislike) had a more intuitive interface. And, despite their claims, it bogged down my system. Pretty significantly.

    I’ve been using Miro for a month or so now on my living room TV. I’m about to pull the plug on my cable tv subscription. Between Miro and Joost there’s nothing else I need. Joost is slicker, but Miro gets great content (imho).

    Miro is a great project, I’m definitely going to donate.

    Does Miro support podcasts? For example, can I download and listen to TWiT on Miro? If so then I’m ready to do away with WMP and iTunes. Thanks.

    Good to see Miro being proactive. I think this is the right step to succeed in the crowded world of media players.

    Also good to see that boingboing is promoting Miro, which is very kind, I think.

    Yours Sincerely.

    Donate to the VLC or FFMPEG projects instead since Miro would be worthless wihout them.

    I tried Miro. It was a slow resource hog. Hype is counterproductive when the product does not measure up.
