Try Miro – A Free, Open-Source Video & Music Player

May 16, 2012

The EdTech Maestro is a big believer in this…

You’re probably familiar with iTunes and Google Music, but have you tried Miro? Miro is an open source media player available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. With Miro installed on your computer you can search for, watch, listen to, and download media. You can search multiple video sources including YouTube and Hulu within the Miro player. When you find a video that you like, you can download it and store it in the Miro player.

If you choose to allow it, Miro can search your computer for existing media files to add to your Miro player. The Miro player can also be synced with your Android device. The latest version of Miro has the capability to stream between devices over a local network. The video below offers an overview of Miro.

Applications for Education
Miro provides a great way to download videos to use offline. If you work in a school that blocks most video sites, Miro is a good application to have installed on your laptop. Download the videos you want to show to students at home and then play them back at school regardless of Internet availability. The mainstream media channels on Miro provide thousands of videos relevant to all content areas.
