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.

Verdict:

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

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
