MediaCrush 1.0.0
Share your media files online, for free

MediaCrush is an interesting web service which allows you to host and share your media files for free.

Sharing images (PNG, JPG, GIF, SVG), videos (MP4, OGV) and music (MP3, OGG) is as easy as dragging and dropping those files onto the Windows client. The service accepts anything up to a maximum of 50MB, and once uploaded, allocates each file its own URL, like https://mediacru.sh/L7E6WPHT1SxR . Pass this to a friend and they'll be able to view images, play music, watch your videos or download any of your content with the MediaCrush web player.

The MediaCrush client also has a basic screen capture feature. Press Ctrl+PrtSc at any time, select a rectangular area you'd like to capture, and that image will be uploaded, ready for sharing with others.

One unusual plus here is that MediaCrush converts animated GIFs to MP4 videos, reducing their size so they load more quickly. These results can be dramatic, too. Our GIFCam-created animation dropped from 754KB to 209KB, and that was already well optimised: others may shrink by 90% or more.

Better still, the web player isn't surrounded by thousands of intrusive adverts: in fact, there aren't any at all. MediaCrush points out that there's no "nasty tracking code" on the site, and it doesn't store anything about you when you use the service. You can even check this for yourself, as it's totally open source.

There is a notable omission in the lack of any client history. If you close the MediaCrush program then any links you've created will be lost, perhaps a hassle if you won't want to use them until later (or you need to reuse the links several times).

Embedding music and videos is a little awkward, too, as you must use some custom IFrame code.

MediaCrush is a likeable service, though, ad-free and easy to use. If you only need to share one or two files on an occasional basis then it could work very well.

Verdict:

MediaCrush is a relatively basic media sharing service, but it's also free, easy to use and with no ads at all, which works for us. Definitely worth a try when you only need to share a few files.

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.
