I love Miro’s new video converter! It is easy to use and cross platform. I am curious how they are dealing with the software patent issues… Here is Miro’s press release:

Hello everyone,

In our tireless (well, sometimes we get a little tired) efforts to build free and open internet video tools, we’ve just released a major update to our new Miro Video Converter. This update adds support for the brand new WebM video format, which has the potential to finally eliminate the mess of patent restricted video formats.

We’ve also added support for new devices, including the iPad and the Droid Incredible.

If you haven’t tried Miro Video Converter before, you should! It’s the simplest video converter anywhere and does an excellent job with almost any video.

And we are already hard at work on version 3, which will include support for converting multiple video files at once.

You can help open video!! Please donate now — any amount you give will be doubled

We are trying to do everything we can to support free and open video formats– can you help us by linking to Miro Video Converter on your blog or writing a review? We’re hoping to get the word out to as many people as possible.

Thank you all for your support and advocacy– together we can make the internet more open.
