"In case you have been feeling out of options when it comes to watching Internet TV and finding video podcasts, the Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) on Monday released a major new version of Miro, its open source Internet TV and podcast player. Miro 2.0 brings integration with streaming sites like Hulu and Archive.org, a windowed video player, and much-improved performance.

"The first noticeable change upon running the new version is some appreciated new UI polish. Miro's sidebar has been tightened up and now features separate sections for sites (we'll get to those in a minute), subscribed feeds, audio feeds, and playlists. The toolbar has been rearranged to place controls on the left and give more space to the timeline for scrubbing, and videos can now be played in an external window to allow for browsing and organizing while watching an episode."
