Video Thumbnails Maker
Automatically create thumbnail previews of your videos

Video Thumbnails Maker is a straightforward tool which will quickly create thumbnail preview images of your videos.

The program couldn't be much easier to use. Point it at the individual video or folder of videos you'd like to catalogue (if the file plays in Windows Media Player then it can probably be imported here), click Start, and Video Thumbnails Maker will go to work while you just sit back and watch.

When it's done, you'll find JPG images with the names matching the input videos (so MyMovie.avi will have a matching MyMovie.avi.jpg). And double-clicking any of these will by default show you a 5x4 thumbnail grid of images taken from the movie: in other words, if the clip is 10 minutes long, it'll extract one frame every 30 seconds or so and display the timestamp, so you can see generally what's in a movie just by glancing at the thumbnails.

These default settings don't quite suit your needs? Just click Options. You can set the grid size to vary the number of thumbnails, as well as setting their width and height. You're able to set a time when the thumbnailing begins. You get the option to choose which summary details are displayed about each video (its file name, size, resolution, length and more). And you can control fonts, colours, opacity, backgrounds and a whole lot more.

Please note, while you can use the program for free, donating via PayPal will get you all kinds of benefits: a faster rendering engine, no program splash screen as one of your generated thumbnails, and various other extras. Suggested donations range from $10 to $25 and you can read more on the author's site.

Version 6.5.0.2 brings (Changelog):
    -  new: From now on the program takes into account the possibility of 1 pixel width and height difference for Landscape/Portrait oriented sets. For instance, 1500x1000, 1500x999, 1001x1500 resolutions will be rounded to 1500x1000, 1500x1000, 1000x1500 in calculations automatically.
    -  new: Disk labels are added to Folder Browser dialog.
    -  changed: "Detect 1-2 sized sets - Landscape only, Portrait only, or mixed sets (...)" option is now checked ON by default.
    -  fixed: Tile background color was permanently white under certain circumstances.

Verdict:

A fast and configurable video thumbnailer which is also very easy to use

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.
