Miro broken on Ubuntu Hardy Heron

If you’re using Miro on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, and you’re using the PCF repositories, you may find that Miro crashed unexpectedly or misbehaves and has trouble with Compiz-fusion. This can be very easily fixed by going into preferences and changing the playback engine from xine to gstreamer. After this, you will need to close Miro and restart it. This should make Miro stable again.

    Thanks, but how do I do just this:
    “This can be very easily fixed by going into preferences and changing the playback engine from xine to gstreamer”

    Could you give instructions in the form MENU|SUBMENU|SUBMENU|SUBMENU…
    I just don’t know which preferences you mean!!

    It’s in Video -> Options -> Playback
    Change “Use this renderer to play videos:” to “Gstreamer”

    Ok I’m running MIRO v2 from Hardy and it either segfaults or just hangs. Any thoughts?
