Poised to become the ultimate desktop video app, Miro is across between a media player and a Bittorrent client. It handles every major video format including MPEG, QuickTime, AVI, H.264, DivX, Windows Media, Flash Video, 3GP, and others. It downloads torrent files and has a wealth of settings geared for user customization. You can e-mail videos, autodelete, autodownload, set favorites, organize your video collection, and more.
Miro arranges content feeds into "channels," showing that there's no need to reinvent television terminology when it's useful. And unlike other software-based Web video viewers, Miro's double duty as a Bittorrent client makes it a worthy addition to your desktop.
