I have no idea what that Miro thing is, but you could probably find an 
older libxine from However the problem is that other 
programs coming with Ubuntu need libxine in the version coming with Hardy 
(or newer). Maybe you should consider installing Miro in a virtual 
machine together with an older Ubuntu version.
