Media Preview 1.3.1.343
Help Explorer display thumbnails for all your video files

Media Preview is an interesting tool which tries to ensure Explorer will display useful thumbnails for all your video files.

And that means an end to browsing folders of videos and finding only general file-type icons, or plain black thumbnails which tell you nothing at all. Instead the program applies a little intelligence to try and ensure you get a frame from the clip which you might actually recognise (which is, after all, the whole point of displaying a thumbnail in the first place).

The program works with a lengthy list of video types: 3GP, AVI, FLV, MKV, MPEG 1/2/4, Ogg video, QuickTime, RealMedia, VOB, Windows Media, and assorted variations of each.

And for the most part it should just work, too. Install the right version for your PC (32 and 64-bit), reboot and the thumbnails ought to be visible right away.

If you do have any issues, though, the Media Preview Configuration dialog includes a lot of settings which can help. There are options relating to the file formats you'd like to support, system caching, performance, how the thumbnails are generated, and a whole lot more.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use and effective video tool

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.
