TVersity is a powerful media server that enables you to watch internet and local media on your PC, TV, games consoles and mobile devices.

Setup is fast and straightforward. Simply accept all the default settings and TVersity will be ready to go in just a few minutes.

You could then browse the programme guide. It's very US-oriented (featured links include items like NBC's Meet the Press and podcasts from CBS News), and not every link is available in the free version (BBC and other premium content requires you upgrade to TVersity Pro), but you can access YouTube and view a few other programmes for free.

The real value of TVersity comes in the library, though, where you're able to set up all the video, audio and image files that you'd like to stream. These can include local files, anything in a Media RSS feeds (an audio or video podcast, for instance), YouTube videos, Flickr images and more.

And once the library has been configured you'll be able to stream video across your network to any UPnP device: your TV, the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and more. TVersity will generally transcode media to suit the device, which allows you to play files on (for example) an Xbox that it wouldn't normally support.

Note that TVersity is now available in Basic (free) and Pro (commercial) formats.

Version 3.7 (release news):
    - Restores support for Roku
    - Improves the experience with PS3 and WDTV, by more accurately determining what to transcode.
    - Includes various other fixes.

Verdict:

It has some rough edges and a bug or two, but if you need a free way to stream media files across your network then TVersity Free will get the job done.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
