Miro 3.5 was released yesterday with an option to easily convert media to various video/audio formats for your media devices, better HTTP downloading performance using libcurl, option to specify the font style and encoding for the subtitles and bug fixes which include faster torrent restarting, proxy/http authentication and more.
Install Miro 3.5 in UbuntuTo add the Miro PPA and install Miro 3.5 in Ubuntu (Karmic, Lucid and Maverick), use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pcf/miro-releases sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install miro
How to enable conversion for most formats in Miro 3.5
Using the default Ubuntu packages (ffmpeg), Miro 3.5 can't convert to most of the media so it will fail when trying to convert a video for your iPhone, Droid, G2 and so on (when trying to convert to these formats, you'll get an error related to libfaac). That's because the ffmpeg package in the official Ubuntu repositories has not been build with libfaac support.
To fix this (I know, I hate that everything needs fixing too, but this one is just an extra installation):
2. Install libavcodec-extra-52:
sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra-52
Now the new video conversion feature in Miro 3.5 should work with any format (well, except for PSP, I didn't have any luck with that):
