Install Miro 3.5 in Ubuntu 10.04/10.10, An Excellent Video Player/Converter For GNU Linux

Miro, although many call it a media player, which it is. But, when analyzing its GUI and behavior, it feels more likely a media center rather than a player. The GUI is pretty close to Apple i-Tunes interface and by default Miro supports almost all the video/audio codecs out there!.

Although at first, it was just a player, but with the 3.5 version, they've added the support for converting multimedia files as well. As said, it is more than a player actually, because it lets you watch online TV channels by adding them directly to its GUI (in full HD) as well.

Main features...

*. Plays almost any file - H.264, H.263, .avi, MPEG, AAC, MP3, WMA, WMV, .mkv, etc.

*. Converting multimedia files (included predefined presets).

*. Share videos, supports bittorrent protocol. 

*. Watch/download films/TV shows with online sharing sites.  

*. Play-list support.

*. Manage large albums.

*. Video thumbnail support.

*. Automatically remembers the last position of the multimedia files before closing the app.

So, if you run Ubuntu 10.04 or the 10.10 then you can easily install Miro using the Terminal. Please enter the below commands.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pcf/miro-releases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install miro

If you want better file type support while converting, then install the libavcodec library using the below command.

sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra-52
