MEPIS 11 Community Repo: The Miro Thread

#1 Postby Stevo » Wed Jun 01, 2011 11:52 pm

Update 6 May 2012: new version 5.0, new features include:

1. Song information and Album art lookup

Clean up your music collection by automatically looking up
the Artist, correct title, and album name and artwork among other thing.

2. Album View

A clean view to group together all your songs by Album and Artist. Also a simplified way to view video items by kind (Movies, Clips, Podcasts…)

3. Faster Device Syncing and Conversions

We’ve added a Quick fill option to get your music onto your device fast! Automatic syncing, options to convert only when necessary, and updates to the ffmpeg binaries. (N/A on Linux)

4. eMusic in the Stores section

Purchase music from eMusic and add it straight to your library.

5. Download HD videos from Vimeo feeds

When available, you can now download HD quality videos from Vimeo podcasts.


Update 25 Dec 2011: new version 4.0.4, adds support for video conversion and syncing with the Kindle Fire.

Update 05 July 2011: Miro 4.0.2, from Debian Sid, is now in the main testing repository.



Miro 4.0.1 is now available in the main testing repository. It was sourced from Miro's Ubuntu PPA. Before upgrading, it's a good idea to backup (actually, it looks like the upgrade process also does a backup, but one can never be sure) the sqlitedb files in ~/.miro, since the new Miro will irrevocably change them.

The new version adds several online Android app and the Amazon mp3 store. You can also convert download media files into various mobile formats, though most will require the debian-multimedia ffmpeg be installed. Please let us know how it's working--and you may have to reboot if it starts eating RAM after the upgrade.

Please note that Miro cannot play DVD or CD media, just downloaded files.


miro - 4.0.1-1mcr110+1

Version: 4.0.1-1mcr110+1

Section: net

Architecture: 32bit and 64bit

Description:
Miro is a media player that lets you subscribe to podcasts, search
for media on the Internet, buy media from stores, sync with devices,
convert to other formas, download torrents, and a variety of other
things.
For the ability to convert media to the most formats, installing the debian-
multimedia.org ffmpeg package and associated libraries is suggested,
depending on the legal situation in your jurisdiction.

Bump: Debian Sid's 4.0.2 now in the main testing repo. Seems to be bugfixes and a database format update.

Please let us know how it's working (I find Miro does a great job of multithreaded converting video to Droid mp4format, ideal for use on my Polaroid 5" personal video player) Full length movies come in at under 300MB, and embedded subtitles tracks are also converted.

What a nice application! Tested on 64 bit M11 Stock...Miro 4.0.4-0mcr110+1
Installed libnet-bonjour-perl...

What worked:
All the audio stuff...all the Torrent stuff
TEDTalks Video, Lifehacker video

What didn't:
YouTube, Hulu, PBS...all complained that I needed a new version of Flash. (If there is a fix, I'd like to know...this is a very cool program...)

I don't think they support any Flash streaming in the Linux version; at least that was the situation in the past. It seems tht they should be able to now, though.

.
Yeah, what can you say. People have been yelling at them for quite some time about it...but now with Adobe throwing in the towel, they're probably trading Flash for LInux for other priorities. Oh well.

Bump: Now in the test repo: our own build of version 5.0, modified from the Miro PPA, since it's not in Sid yet. Flash streaming is still not available, and they have not used the HTML5 alternate :(

This was built against the ffmpeg/libav in the test repo also, and video conversions have only been tested against that ffmpeg (and work well, too)
