Miro 5 Media Player With Integrated Youtube, Hulu and Torrent Downloads
Miro is a free and open source media player with a lot of built-in features that can’t be found in any other media player. We have already reviewed other media players like KMPlayer and Media Player Classic but Miro take a non-traditional route by integrating online streaming services like Youtube and Hulu right within the player. So you don’t have to open the browsers to play a video from Youtube or watch a movie from Hulu. All of this will take place within Miro media player.
Let’s take a look at some of the features of Miro 5 which is the latest version of Miro Player.
Easy to use music library
Miro comes with an automatic music library feature which means that you just have to point Miro to the folders or files and all of them will appear in Miro. You can also switch from iTunes to Miro without changing anything.
Download and play videos
Now you can download and play videos from different streaming sites like Youtube, Hulu, Ted, PBS, YouTorrent, ClearBits. You can even download podcasts from popular sites.
Buy music within Miro
Now you can buy music from Amazon store, Google Android store and eMusic store right within Miro.
I was pretty comfortable with the interface of Miro Player but I will not replace the standard Windows Media Player with Miro because I’m pretty comfortable with it. But I will be using Miro for streaming videos from Youtube and downloading video torrents. What do you think about Miro Media Player? Share your thoughts in comments below. Note: There is a file embedded within this post, please visit this post to download the file.
Note: We are hosting Miro Player on our servers because the setup file on Miro site comes with additional toolbars which are junk and useless in my opinion. The above setup download is clean and will only install Miro 5.0 media player.
