Miro at its core is a media player that combines local playback support with remote features. These remote features make it interesting, as it allows you for instance to watch YouTube videos directly in the player, download those videos, subscribe to podcasts, or download torrents.

No new features have been added since the release of the first release candidate of Miro 5. Existing users who upgrade to the new version find the following new features now integrated into the application:
