DivX Plus Web Player 2.1 (beta)
Watch DivX videos in your web browser

The DivX Plus Web Player allows you to play DivX videos from your web browser.

Install the program and it equips your PC with browser add-ons that mean you'll be able to use the DivX player with sites like YouTube, often delivering better performance.

The Web Player also plays many common video formats, including DivX, AVI, MKV, MP4 and MOV, as well as providing HTML5 <video> tag support. (You'll need IE8, Firefox 3.5+ Chrome 5+ or Safari+ for full support: IE7, Firefox 3.0 and Safari 4 can't handle HiQ or HTML5.)

And whatever you're playing, support for DirectX hardware acceleration may help to improve performance by offloading video rendering tasks to your graphics card (if it's up to the task).

That's the theory, anyway: the player is still a beta, however, and we had problems getting it to work exactly as it should. If you also run into difficulties, check the DivX Labs support forums for more advice.


An interesting web video player, although not yet too reliable, even by beta standards

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
