SopCast 3.8.3
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 3.8.3 brings:
◾ Improved the data transfer performance.
◾ Fixed a bug in crash report module.
◾ Fixed a bug in install.bat file.

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.

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
