XMedia Recode Portable
Batch convert almost any audio or video file

XMedia Recode is an audio and video conversion tool that supports just about every format around: 3GP, 3G2, AAC, AC3, AIFF, AMR, APE, ASF, AVI, AVISynth, AU, DVD (unprotected), DIVX, DTS, E-AC3, FLAC, FLV, H261, H263, H264, M2TS, M1V, M2V, M3U, M3U8, M4A, M4P, M4V, MKA, MKV, MMF, MP2, MP3, MP4, MP4V, MPE, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MOV, QT, OGG, OGM, OGV, PVA, REC, RM, RMVB, SVCD, SWF, THP, TS, TRP, TP0, VCD, VOB, WebM, WMA, WMV, WML and WPL.

Compatibility is great, then, and multimedia geeks will also appreciate the fine control they get over the conversion process. You're able to choose the video codec, frame rate, bit rate, GOP length, resolution, aspect ratio and a host of other advanced options. And that's just the start. If you're reducing the size of a video, for instance, XMedia Recode doesn't just apply some random scaling algorithm: you get to decide exactly how it's done, and there are nine options available.

If that all sounds too complicated then there is a simpler approach on offer, fortunately. The program comes with wide selection of profiles that define the best way of carrying out conversions for a particular device or task, and if you choose one of these then every other setting is selected automatically. So if you want to convert a video to play on some Apple device, for instance, you'd choose the Apple profile, then your particular hardware (the iPad is supported), click Add Job > Encode and then watch as your file is created.

XMedia Recode is an incredibly powerful program, then, but it does have one small problem. While the author claims support for five different languages, it's only partly translated from the original German, and the Help appears to be only available in German. This shouldn't be a major issue as it's generally obvious how everything will work, but if you have problems and don't speak the language then it may take some trial and error to figure out any solution.

Note that this is the portable version of XMedia Recode.

Version 3.2.6.8 (version history):

- Update of ffmpeg
- Update of vpx (1.5.0) Codec
- Update of libass (0.13.1)
- Updated Japanese language file
- Updated Italian language file
- Updated French language file
- MKV container: Added ‘Apple ProRes’ support
- MKV container: Added ‘FF HuffYUV’ support
- MKV container: Added ‘LossLess Codec Library ZLIB’ support
- MKV container: Added ‘QuickTime Animation (RLE)’ support

Verdict:

XMedia Recode is a powerful, effective and highly configurable file conversion tool. The lack of help in anything other than German could be an occasional problem, though

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.13

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.
