I was downloading using piratebay or eztv and it worked perfectly. Miro 6 is not working except for TED, Can you help me to sort this out or show me a way to download previous version that was working perfectly
I too am unable to download with version 6 so I went back to version 5.0.4 and it works perfectly. I must admit that it took some doing to find the older version and even more effort to get it to install. Several times I tried to install what I thought would be version 5.0.4 but when I was finished it would be version 6. The Miro version 5.0.4 I found that actually worked for me is at oldapps.com. To find this I googled "Miro 5.0.4". One other thing, version 5.0.4 seems to be set for Windows XP, I had to left click on the exe program, go into preferences, select compatibility and change the setting to match my operating system. I hope this helps.
I have the same problem
Thank you for your suggestion Jennie W. I have uninstalled and then installed the old one from your link.... But I cannot seem to open/run it. The set-up said it completed - the icon is on my desktop and everything!
If you have any hints on how to get it to work, I'd really appreciate it. I am not IT savvy at all, but appreciate help and patience.
I would appreciate any help at all on this! Thanks in advance.
I had the exact same issue with Miro v6.0XXX
I went into preferences / download tab and checked the box "LIMIT TORRENT CONNECTIONS TO:"
left to the 100 value, above starting ports 8500 & ending ports 8600 and the peers re-appeared and all started working well, just like previous versions.
Maybe it was already resolved.
Hoping it helps you all!!!
Had exactly same problem, I just did what Pepe le Piew suggested above and it was resolved, the download started up perfectly - Yay!! I cant really pretend to understand it, not being very computer literate lol. Thankyou Pepe - I run windows 7, I had upgraded to Miro v6 and it just would not work - after making sure Miro was allowed through the firewall, which did not solve the problem, this did. I hope it lasts, I've always relied on Miro...
Pépé le Piew's solution only worked for a few seconds then the problem came back. BTW: I am using the Linux version of Miro, so it looks like the problem is not just on the Windows version.
I had a similar problem since version 6 in my ubuntu setup. My Mythtv/mirobridge scripts were failing as a result. Pepe le piew's settings change worked for me
Having same issue (ever since updating to 6.0) on Mac OS X.
This has been reported for a LONG time. Is it being resolved? Miro has been a useless app for me since updating to 6.0.
I ended up having to give up on Miro - I removed all traces of it (new and old versions), and installed BitLord instead. I haven't had a single hiccup, what a nice change it has been!
Thanks for the suggestion. I am not sure, however, BitLord is a decent substitute for Miro. As far as I can tell, BitLord is primarily an application for finding and downloading torrents. Whereas, at least in my case, I primarily use Miro for managing streaming media content from various providers like YouTube, Google Video, etc. Does BitLord have this functionality, and I am simply overlooking it?
You can definitely download series and movies from websites available over the internet. Give these sites a try. https://www.infogeekers.net/watch-tv-series-online/
