Helping Out

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

Several people have hopped on #miro and #miro-hackers and asked how they can join the community and help out.

Here are a few URLs to pages that talk about how to help:

  • Help build the open video revolution Talks about why what we're doing is important.

  • Translating If you can help translate, definitely look at this page which talks (briefly) about how to get involved in the translation effort.

  • Democracy Testers (should be renamed to Miro Testers) This page talks about our testing efforts. Miro runs on a huge number of operating systems on a wide variety of hardware. There are many issues with specific video cards and specific combinations of libraries, operating systems, and hardware. Help us test Miro on as many combinations as we can.

  • Team Miro Team Miro is instrumental in helping the developers flesh out issues into problems that the developers can reproduce and then fix, fleshing out documentation, and making Miro easier to use and more user-friendly. Team Miro meets on Tuesdays.

  • Make Internet TV Miro is a video player, but it's not very interesting without content. MITV is a web-site that walks people through the hardware, software, and skills needed to create video content. If you have experience in these areas, share it with others and help to make the site better.
