Capture, process and encode your AVI videos

VirtualDub is a fast, flexible video capture and processing tool.

The program first helps you get video into your PC, from a capture card, video camera, any Video for Windows-compatible device. You get complete control over frame rates, video formats, video and audio compression methods, and more. Real-time noise reduction then ensures the best possible picture quality, while an integrated volume meter and histogram makes it easy to monitor your input levels,

And if you already have a video clip to hand (AVI format, preferably) then VirtualDub will allow you to process it many useful ways. You're able to remove segments of a video, for instance, then save the rest, without re-encoding. The program can save the soundtrack from a clip, or replace it without affecting the video. And VirtualDub comes with 39 powerful filters for processing some or all of your movie in various ways: resizing, tweaking brightness or contrast, deinterlacing, rotating, sharpening or smoothing are just a few of the options on offer.

Alternatively, you can simply re-encode a clip, perhaps to reduce its size for internet downloads, tweaking frame size, frame rate, colour depth, compression algorithm, and more. This can take a while with large movies, but then all video processing tools place a heavy demand on your system resources, and on balance VirtualDub probably works quicker than most.


The sheer weight of features is a little intimidating at first, but it's worth persevering - VirtualDub is probably the best free video processing tool around

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
