Miro (previously known as Democracy Player) is a platform for Internet television and video.
It allows you to download and watch videos from RSS feeds (including podcasts, video blogs, and BitTorrent feeds).
The application is designed to mesh with other Participatory Culture Foundation products such as Video Bomb, a social tagging video website, and the Channel Channel, a TV guide for internet television.
Miro is built to be as open as possible – open source, open-standards, compatible with any host that provides video rss, open to alternate channel guides, and able to search multiple video sites.
It is targeted at average, unsophisticated Internet users with broadband connections.
It uses GTK+.
