SuperEasy Codec Checker 1.0.8
Find out most about what you need to play an audio/ video fileTry playing some audio or video files and you'll see only a message complaining that it requires some unknown codec. Which is less than helpful, especially as the error message generally doesn't say what codec the file needs.

Try playing some audio or video files and you'll see only a message complaining that it requires some unknown codec. Which is less than helpful, especially as the error message generally doesn't say what codec the file needs.

SuperEasy Codec Checker can help, though, simply by analysing the clip and telling you about its file format, resolution, bit rate and other details, including any codecs used.

To use the program, click the Add button, then navigate to and select your media file. SuperEasy Codec Checker can open AVI files, MPEGs, MKV, WMV, MP3, OGG, WMA and several other formats (although the program ignored our test MOV files, annoyingly, even though the developer's website says they should be supported).

And in a second or two a tree opens, displaying more information about the file. When we tried a test video, for instance, it displayed the video format, file size, clip duration, video and audio bitrates, video and audio codecs, frame rate, dimensions (in pixels), and more.

None of this is particularly special, and we're not entirely sure why you have to install the program to make it happen: it's simple enough that a portable version should be practical.

Still, if you do find yourself regularly confronted with audio or video files which don't behave as you expect then SuperEasy Codec Checker could be a simple way to find out more.

Verdict:

An easy way to find out more about the contents of any audio or video file

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
