Is this page anything more than an advertisement? The links don't work, and neither does the windows uninstall for the software. How best to reflect that in the article? -Sweavo 22 Jan 2007
- The links do work and so does the windows uninstaller. It seems like it is just you? --Sish 22:35, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Sounds like Cory Doctorow won out and the project recently changed its name to Miro, the url will be changing to getmiro.com soon. Probably not worth mentioning until they make the change over. Kookrme 00:02, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
- it should be mentioned now, as the miro project is looking to build name recognition.riffic 02:09, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Miro.png
Image:Miro.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Screenshot is very old
The screenshot being used is very old - at version 0.9.9 while the current version is 2.0.3. I presume that uploading a newer one (as the ui is significantly different enough) would be worthwhile? Faemir (talk) 02:32, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Unbalanced Content - Need for Revision History?
The substantive content of the article is barely a dozen sentences or so (as of this note); it is dwarfed by a multi-screen table of the version revision history, down to four-decimal version numbers, some only days apart, most giving no information other than the version number and date. This seems awkward and not very useful. Perhaps just a brief mention of major upgrades, and a note on the name change, would suffice?KTK (talk) 22:59, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
Should provide the intended pronunciation. I for one haven't been able to locate it... Cub
- Sort of on that note, I've been wondering how they decided on this name. What immediately came to mind for me is that "miro" in Japanese means "look" (the imperative, as in, "Look over there!") If that's where they got the name, then it would be pronounced "MEE-roh". Does anyone know where they got the name? NoriMori (talk) 14:40, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Miro 3.0.3 & Malware
I think note should be made in the article that this softwares newest version, 3.0.3 by default it seems contains malware, something Ad-Aware id's as "Zugo (fs)" ..
- The above poster is probably referring to the toolbar added by the installer for the Windows build. See  where the Participatory Culture Foundation representatives explain why they use the Zugo installer and that users have the choice of not using the installer. See also  and . I may be too close to this topic having used Miro on Windows, both the official Windows build and a portable apps build, and having found and removed Zugo traces on my PC (flagged as adware and toolbar Zugo by DrWeb and NOD32 and as not malicious by VIPRE, see ). The toolbar appears to be not present in the portable version, see https://www.virustotal.com/file/b7c70e9ccd14b3a098029a4ac10363e8f93f00df89cfadc29f94093cbde7f24a/analysis/.
- However, from a wikipedia viewpoint I searched for reliable sources that mention Miro with Zugo or toolbar: Google news only found  and . Google web search finds many more results including this list of software derived from this Installers Hall of Shame list that also bundle toolbars and other adware. That list includes such well-known software as Adobe Flash Player, Avast, Google Earth, and Sun Microsystems Java installer, none of whose articles mentions adware or bundling. One exception is IrfanView#Search Engine Toolbar cited by a CNET post. This CNET Editors' review criticizes the toolbar installation in MIRO but does not label it adware or malware. Finally, Martin Brinkmann of Ghacks covered adware bundling in other installers in this post. -84user (talk) 20:38, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
Can somebody fix my reference if I don't get back to this in time. Also the references and links are all mixed up.--tumaru 03:09, 18 January 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tumaru (talk • contribs)
removal of reports of crumware
It would be good if this topic got covered from the other angle, here is an official blog post on the topic

- Restored deleted malware section, which was properly cited. The official site for Miro Video Converter  hosts a Windows installer that tries to install some "AVG anti-virus" package with an overreaching EULA. It's not some third party doing this. John Nagle (talk) 20:56, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
