aVia 3.2
aVia makes it easy to browse and playback media on your Android device.

There’s an awful lot of media out there – and there’s quite a bit dotted around your home too. What you need is a single app for accessing it, and aVia aims to be that app.

aVia provides a one-stop shop for all your media playback and sharing needs – it’s evolved rapidly since debuting in October 2011, and has been built from the ground up specifically for Android tablets and smartphones.

Fire the app up and tap My Sources to begin. From here you can browse your local storage, snoop over the USB connection or look for content on your Facebook and Picasa accounts or stored on a DLNA server. Just select an option to browse its contents for media to access.

Select music, and you’ll get an album cover, track info and playback controls – plus you’re at liberty to wander off and browse the rest of your collection or look at some photos without disrupting playback, which can be controlled (along with the volume) via a series of gestures.

Video playback is similarly intuitive, with options for enabling and disabling subtitles, video scaling adjustments and all the all-important playback controls themselves, with options for skipping or shuffling through the contents of the current folder. Photos work in a similar way too, with a slideshow option for good measure.

aVia also allows you to create multimedia playlists, mixing the three media types together. And not only can you access DLNA servers on your network, you can turn aVia itself into a DLNA server too, giving others access to your locally stored content.

It supports a broad range of formats and containers, but video codecs are slightly restricted, although more are promised shortly. It’s the only slight blemish on what is a very capable tool for Android users. 

Verdict:

An excellent choice for Android users looking for DLNA-compliant media player - just a shame it doesn't run on older Android devices.

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.
