Reviews of Miro for Windows

  1. 5 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing 6.0 (May 5, 2013)

    Find yourself a nice collection of video sources, get Miro's capable download manager to auto-download them (file links, RSS feeds, torrents - whatever!), watch them straight from within the app, and tell me how you lived without this incredible peice of software.

    Version 6.0 cuts down on CPU Usage (it's zero when no downloads are taking place), and my cheap-o dual-core Atom (2GB RAM) has no issues running this in the background. The interface is better than before (if a tad clunky) but functionality-wise, this is just plain unbeatable. And it's both free and open-source, to boot!

    For podcasts alone, I've paid for apps that do a worse job!

    I'm donating.

    I tried it out and I simply don't see the point in it?

    Reviewing 5.0.2 (Jul 29, 2012)

    I don't like to be harsh, but this is a piece-o-crap.

  4. 3 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing 5.0 (May 3, 2012)

    Sound volume is low. It should be boosted as in VLC or KMP.
    The interface is amateurish.
    The software is laggy and a CPU hog.
    Adding podcast/feeds is not simple enough.

    Cross platform
    All-in-one podcatcher.
    Miro has potential to be a must-have multimedia app.

    Terrible memory usage in 4.0 and 4.0.1 when it's not doing anything.

    1. Do you have your latest video drivers from the manufacturer of the chipset (ATi/Nvidia/Intel, etc.) installed?

    2. Have you tried videos from more than once source in order to make sure the publisher didn't just screw up?

    3. Have you tried playing the same type of file (most likely an MP4) using VLC (which is what Miro uses internally)? Did you get video?

    4. Are you playing on primary monitor or a secondary/extended?

    I have K-Lite installed as well (Mega version) and I have no problems.
