5 thoughts on “Howto install Miro in Ubuntu Jaunty/Intrepid/Hardy

  1. I installed it in intrepid and it runs, except if I try to go to HULU, it tells me that I need a later version of flash. I have the requisite version installed and it works fine in the browser, but not in MIRO. Any idea how to get miro to recognize the flash version I have installed?

  2. Thanks for alerting me to this great application, I have been watching TED lectures all morning. I’ve found the same problem with flash as Dan Donaldson, any suggestions anyone?

  3. This package is simply available within the ubuntu repositories no ? What is the problem with this default-package, other then the fact it might not be entirely up-to-date (but will be in 2 months) ?

  4. I second what Joshua said, i’ve been using miro from the repositories for months and haven’t seen any issues with it. Why not just use that one?
