Windows/Mac/Linux: Previously mentioned Miro has been around for awhile, but for many it was little more than yet another alternative video player. Today, though, Miro has overhauled its app into a full-featured media library designed to sync with Android.

Android users may see an immediate resemblance to previously mentioned DoubleTwist, and Miro's Android syncing puts it in a position as a great alternative. While it doesn't have wireless sync like DoubleTwist, it does have a few advantages over its competitors, like full podcast support and a built-in video converter that will convert your videos to a compatible format for your mobile device.

It also has a few other cool features that aim to make it worthy of a desktop media player, and not just a syncing program: For example, you can share media across your network and buy music directly from the Amazon MP3 store. It even has its own BitTorrent client and custom search engine built-in, so you can download those videos direct to your media library. Check out the video above for more info on the app's overhaul, and hit the link below to try it out.
