New Features
  • Subtitles: If subtitles are embedded or in the same folder as your video, they will be available automatically in a new drop-down menu. Or pick any subtitle file.
  • Even Faster: Miro is faster and snappier in all sorts of ways from downloading torrents to deleting lots of files.
  • Louder: The maximum volume for videos is now at least twice as high. Really nice for laptops.
