I'm using Ubuntu with JYA's repositories for .22.  I have no issues 
playing the files downloaded from Miro BUT Miro itself as in the 
package, is in conflict with the version of VDPAU.  I'm sure if I went 
to the point of download the source or rebuilding the Miro package I 
could get it to work but in reality I don't need Miro since I already 
know what feeds I want - so I just need a downloader.

So to be clear, Miro's package has a requirement for VDPAU 180 so it 
won't install as a package.  Rather then going through the process of 
getting Miro working under my config, I was hoping to just drop Miro and 
use something that will fetch the videos based on the RSS feeds provided 
by the sites.

I've been using .22 on and off for likely a year now and I love it.  The 
latest RC is looking great.  I wish I had more free time to contribute 
and provide patches or even my own plugins to solve my little problems 
but for now it can only be feedback and testing.
