DivX 10.3
Create, play, stream and convert high definition video with this powerful suite

DivX 10 is a collection of tools to help you play, convert and stream video files.

Specifically, during installation you're able to install four components: the DivX Codec Pack, DivX Converter, DivX Player and DivX Web Player. (The installer will by default install the Google Toolbar, too, but no attempt is made to hide this, so if you pay attention and clear the relevant checkbox it won't happen.)

As previously, the heart of the package is the DivX Player, a stylish and featured-packed tool which delivers high quality playback of DivX, AVI, MKV, MP4 and MOV files.

And this release sees the player extended with a media server, which allows you to stream contents in your selected videos to any DLNA-compatible device.

Elsewhere, the Converter makes it very easy to convert even high definition content to DivX format. It's based around a new transcoding engine which supports hardware acceleration via Intel Quick Sync Video, which DivX says can deliver anything up to a 10x speed increase over the previous technology.

The Converter can now also convert your videos into iPhone or iPad-friendly MP4's (just choose the appropriate profile from the list).

And if you've become a little tired of DivX in the past due to their habit of charging for just about everything they could, the company are eager to point out that this time, just about everything is free. The conversion engine, DLNA streaming, iPhone/ iPad output, it's all free; so far it looks like only the Converter's MPEG-2 plugin will cost money (and even then, only when it appears in the final release).

What's new in DivX 10.3?

- Dolby AudioTM Edition adds support for Dolby® Digital Plus audio up to 7.1 to DivX Player and DivX Web Player
- Chromecast streaming from DivX Media Server's "Cast to" feature
- Blu-ray backup using new Video Pack for Converter 
- Faster conversion with Intel Quick Sync Video hardware encoding for DivX Plus profiles
- Tested support for 4K videos from GoPro Hero4, Samsung S5, LG G3, and Sony X2 4K cameras
- Converter menu drop-down to conveniently add recent files 
- Play button added to Converter to open recently converted files in DivX Player 
- DivX Media Server can stream playlists from media library

Verdict:

There are more versatile players and video conversion tools around, but if you're particularly interested in DivX content then the latest release does greatly improved performance and some useful new features

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
