Miro (open and free video player) has been released and is bowling over the competition such as Quicktime, Joost, and Windows Media Player.

I am thrilled to announce that Miro, the open and free video player, has gone 1.0, and launched in a polished, slick package for Windows, Linux and MacOS. Miro (formerly Democracy Player) is the open and free alternative to Joost, Windows Media Player and iTunes for getting, watching and organizing your video. In place of DRM and proprietary formats, Miro uses the VLC video-engine to play practically every video format under the sun. It has over 2,700 channels of free content
And it uses BitTorrent to download, which means that the creators you love won’t get clobbered by bandwidth bills when their videos get popular.

Miro launches: Democracy Player evolves into a 1.0 product! (almost!)
