What it is:

television and video.
It allows you to download and watch videos from RSS feeds (including
podcasts, video blogs, and BitTorrent feeds).

Features:

Miro can automatically download videos from RSS-based “channels”,
manage them and play them. The application is designed to mesh with
other PCF products such as Video Bomb, a social tagging video website,
and the Channel Channel, a TV guide for Internet television.

Miro integrates an RSS aggregator, a BitTorrent client (based on
libtorrent), and a media player (VLC media player under Windows,
QuickTime under Mac OS X, and Xine Media Player or GStreamer under
Linux). Since 2.0, Miro supports the adding of website bookmarks under
the “Sites” category; by default, ClearBits.net is preloaded in Miro
as a bookmark.

Examples of supported video files are QuickTime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, XVID
as a video player. It also supports RSS BitTorrent. When a new video
is available, the program will notify and download if possible.

The Miro Video Converter, a separate free program, converts video formats.
