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

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
