Miro is a free application that turns your computer into an internet TV video player.

The Mac version of Miro uses Quicktime 7, which is built into the operating system, to play video. In addition, it uses plugins for Quicktime to play even more video types. The Mac version can play MPEG, MP4, MOV, H264, Flash, Xvid, AVI, OGG, and more.

Previously known as Democracy.

Hmmm. Looks like I'm still getting the windows version through the d/l link...

indeed it did. Fixxored

Download seems to point to the windows version...

Today, July 21st 2007, Miro is able to search videos in YouTube again.
(I wonder what happenned the last two days...)

For some reason, today Miro is not able to search any videos from YouTube. (Yesterday it worked OK.)
I have tried with the other websites included in the search field (Google Video, Dailymotion, blip.tv, etc.) and they all work perfectly. Searching in YouTube gives no result. Nothing at all!

I have been trying Miro and there are two little things that could make it even better:
1. When there are more than 20 videos in a search, it displays only the first 20. There's no way to access the other ones. (Or am I missing something?)
2. It would be nice if there was a field to insert the video URL (from those websites) and then play it.
Otherwise, it's excellent!

This has now been rebranded as Miro.

@el_cravito : You are very much right. I updated the description.

I suppose this is the application that used to be called Democracy. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
I have just installed it and... it is great!
Go to the application's website and watch the screencast. It's very well done.
Miro's interface is very nice and everything is so easy to use. I specially like the search of movies in YouTube, Dailymotin and other websites inside the application.
Excellent!

Not too delightful on my old iMac with only 512 MB. More RAM would definitely help, but I think it is a bit of a Ram-muncher in any case ;-)
