Miro …

July 18, 2007

It’s so boring to lay down the whole day (sprain at left ankle), I decided to give a try to Miro, a software to “watch internet video channels as easy as to watch TV”. Before trying it, I tried to watch their video demonstration but it’s not working since it requires the proprietary Flash player …

Now, if you want to try Miro, do not use “yum install Democracy” on Fedora 7 (Democracy Player is Miro former name). It will give you version 0.9.5.1-10 that will cause many problem (the main one being it won’t run).

If you want to try Miro, go to their download page and download the ad hoc package (i.e. version 0.9.8-1 when I’m writing this). Try to install it by typing “rpm -i Miro…” and resolve the dependencies (I had to download libfame). If, like me, you are already using Firefox 2.0.0.4, it will still require version 2.0.0.3. You can force the installation by typing “rpm -i –nodeps Miro…”. And it still doesn’t work. I get some errors apparently linked with dbus. I posted a comment on the Miro forum. I hope to get an answer soon …

Meanwhile, it’s still boring to lay down the whole day …
