flowplayer is an advanced and customizable streaming video player for your web site

Web sites are all about multimedia content these days, and video is a great way to deliver a large amount of information quickly and easily. Whether used for entertainment purposes or to provide tutorials and video demonstrations, a video can be worth thousands of words. There are a number of ways of embedding videos into your pages, but many are either incredibly complicated to set up, or rather unattractive when they are finished.

flowplayer falls into neither of these two camps, being both incredibly sleek and good-looking, but also remarkably easy to configure. To start with you will need to provide one or more videos that you would like to make available on your web site, and it does not matter what format these are in as they will be automatically converted for you and made available through a number of servers. The look of the player itself is completely customizable, and while it can be advantageous to have a little HTML and other coding knowledge, it is not essential.

There is a beautifully designed online interface that can be used to control the look and feel of the player. You are free to tinker with the source code if you feel inclined to do so, but in reality you need do little more than move sliders to adjust colors, sizes, positioning, corner shape and all manner of other settings. You can choose which controls should be visible on the player so you can make it as minimal or as complex as you feel suits yours web site

Providing it is used within the terms of the license, flowplayer can be used with an unlimited number of domains, but things to start to get a little expensive if you intend to use the player for commercial venture and do not want to be plagued with flowplayer branding. A single commercial license will set you back $95 and this allows you to use the player on one domain and add your own logo. There is also a multidomain license available that allows for use on up to 100 domains, while the Unlimited license, as the name suggests, means that you can use it on an unlimited number of domains.

Version 5.4.6 brings:

•Fix  #604  - Android + iPhone - no video
•Fix  #606  - Amazon Silk - no visible video

Verdict:

 With flowplayer it is possible to create something that has a very professional look with very little effort – a worthy addition to any web site owner’s toolkit.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
