How to install miro on Ubuntu 9.10+

If you don't know, Miro is a free HD video player. It can play almost any video file (Quicktime, WMV, MPEG, AVI, XVID, and more) and offers over 6,000 free internet TV shows and video podcasts.

Miro has a simple, gorgeous interface designed for fullscreen HD video. Since Miro downloads most videos, you can take your shows with you, even on an airplane. Quite simply, Miro is a better way to watch all the video you care about.

Best of all, Miro is 100% free and open source, developed by a non-profit organization and volunteers around the world.

How to install it:

First we need to add PPA on our system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pcf/miro-releases

It will result in something like this:

Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv DB6F4249F501C2D31923CF8CE38FDEE72D75E850
gpg: requesting key 2D75E850 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
gpg: key 2D75E850: public key "Launchpad Miro releases" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)

Then we update repositories list:

sudo apt-get update

Install the video player:

sudo apt-get install miro

After everything has finished, you can find the application on Applications -> Sound & Video -> Miro Internet TV
