Miro is easily the best open-source application I have ever used. I positively love it. I donated last week; I'll do so again next month. It's polished, functional and relatively reliable (save for the irritating issue here ).
I use the Miro Podcast downloader to download large files from 'put.io' via putcast, which creates an RSS feed of completed downloads. Miro then downloads them automatically. Works amazingly. (As a side-note, I'd love to have a '15 minute' option on when to update Podcasts, rather than the current minimum of 30 minutes: this would be easy for Team Miro to add, I'd guess?)
The only limitation is that the download is a single-segment download, which limits speed. Most download managers support multiple segments at a time (eg, 3 chunks of the same file are downloaded at the same time) : the resulting speed increases are massive; often more than double or even triple.
Does the library Miro uses to run it's download manager support this? Would it be possible to add?
