Hurrah! Miro, the amazing, free, DRM-free, play-any-format, BitTorrent-based video player goes 2.0 today, and it absolutely, totally rocks:
In a nutshell, here’s what’s new:
* A beautiful, all-new widget based interface (see it in action here)
* Browse while you watch– pop out any video to an external window (our number one requested feature)
* Miro is now faster, more responsive, and uses less memory
* You can add streaming sites like Hulu to your sidebar (note: streaming with Flash only works in Windows and OSX)
* You can add download sites like Archive.org or legaltorrents.com to your sidebar and download to Miro with a single click
* Improved playlists
* New compact, sortable list view
* Better audio support
…and a few days ago we launched the all-new Miro Guide that looks beautiful and works with Miro 2.0 (for example, the Guide is now starting to list some streaming sites).
Miro 2.0 Open internet TV, beyond anything else.
