Access worldwide broadcasts and create your own with SopCast

It has been said that everyone will have their fifteen minutes of fame, and it is certainly true that most people are looking for it. A huge number of people would love nothing more than to break into television, but this is a field in which it can be very difficult to get started. If you have a burning ambition to gain yourself an audience there are various routes you could go down, but by turning to SopCast you can set up your own online TV station.

The name of the application is derived from the fact that it makes use of P2P technology - with Sop standing for Streaming Over P2P. This means that when you are broadcasting, you do not need to worry about having the latest hardware or endless bandwidth, as the burden is shared with your viewer. Everyone that is connected to a particular channel is helping with its broadcast and helping to improve performance.

SopCast can be used to broadcast in realtime, but it can also be used with readymade files if you want to show pre-prepared footage. As a viewer, channel footage can be outputted to any media player you have installed and the fact that a players can be embedded into a web page opens up even more possibilities for both broadcasters and viewers.

Of course, in addition to enabling you to broadcast to the world, SopCats can also be used to watch broadcasts that have been created by other users. With thousands of streams from all over the world, there’s sure to be something to suit your taste – whether you’re looking for someone broadcasting from their basement about gaming, or you want to catch up with Formula 1 or other sporting events from all over the world.

Version 4.0.0 brings:
 

  • Improved the data transfer performance.
  • Minor bugs Fixed.
Verdict:

A free tool that not only gives you access to possibly the widest selection of channel available, but allows you to add to this selection with your out broadcast.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
