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.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
