Ok read the FAQ. Says that it is not possible right now.
Please make it possible and keep me with the player instead of switching to evil Iproducts.

Just to clarify, it is possible to transfer video files with a little format conversion, but in the case of iTunes integration most of the useful metadata will be lost. There isn't an elegant solution just yet.

That depends on the file format you're working with -- check out Alok's post for an idea: http://getsatisfaction.com/participat...

Keep in mind there are a number of free utilities you can use to convert file formats. A lot of people like iSquint: http://www.isquint.org/

Yes, Miro stores your files in a folder on your computer. Check options, folders, downloads. You can transfer the files from this folder to any device that will support the file types. You may need to convert the files to a file type that your device supports when it comes to video. Ive had good luck using a freeware called anyvideoconverter: http://www.any-video-converter.com. Of course if its a audio podcast then it will be in MP3.

I do this with my LG phone.

I'm Quite satisfied with this encoder http://www.xmedia-recode.de/
But still it's a hassle to encode and copy the files.
It's more comfortable to use evil Iproducts.

We're looking into integrating (in a fashion) with doubletwist for the next version of Miro, which would allow for easy syncing with almost any device.

The open source podcatcher juicereceiver.sourceforge.net has iTunes integration and work much better than iTunes itself (in my opinion). I was hoping to replace Juice with Miro since its an inactive project that's seen no updates in a few years.

Any chance the dev team could integrate some code (I think its all python) from Juice and bring that iTunes functionality into Miro?

For a Juice replacement I would suggest gPodder, it is looking very promising.

I use the http://www.orb.com to view PC media on my mobile device. It's kind of like a slingbox where the PC is the TV and your phone is the client device. There is no need to do any manual conversion of audio or video. The PC does however need to be powered on and connected to the internet, and then Orb software acts as a personal media server.

I'm not proposing it as a solution but nonetheless some may find it useful.

Given that the audio players I own can all be accessed as USB flash drives, in the short term I'd settle for a "Copy" button against downloaded files that copies them to a selected directory and marks them as having been played.

I'm using "4videosoft" converter platinum. It converted my creative zen when others wouldn't (don't use Creative's conversion software - junk). 4video has a multitude of ways to convert to any format. Very happy with this software.

there is a whole bunch of nice video converters out there. I perefere Xmedia recoder. A friend preferes Handbreak.
The thing that still does not work for me with all these decoders is the amount of steps I need to get the video from Miro to my mobile device.
I dont want to bother about it at all. Most of the clips are quite short and it takes longer to get them on the device than just watching them on the computer.
As there is no solution for this ohter than the apple one I made the switch.

If there was a portable version of Miro, you could place it on the portable media player and just attach the media player to a PC and run Miro, whenever you want to update your subscriptions. Now THAT would be great! :-D
Please, make Miro portable!

1. HIGHLIGHT THE FILE YOU WANT FROM MIRO.

2. GO TO "FILE" AND CLICK ON "SAVE FILE AS"

3. SAVE THE FILE ANYWHERE YOU WANT (LIKE THE "DESKTOP").

4. I HAVE A MAC OS X. FROM HERE, I JUST DRAG THE MUSIC FILE FROM MY "DESKTOP" INTO MY "iTUNES." NOW I AM ABLE TO ENJOY THE MUSIC FROM "MIRO" ONTO MY "iTUNES."

Hope this all helps!
