Miro Video Converter 3.0
Quickly convert videos into iPod and Android-friendly formats

It's a fundamental law of video files that they're never in quite the format you need, especially for playback on mobile devices. Install Miro Video Converter and that needn't be a problem, though - the program provides the easiest possible way to transcode just about any video format to the Theora format, or files suitable to a range of mobile hardware: Android products (Behold II, Cliq/ DEXT, Droid, Eris/ Desire, G1, Hero, Magic/ myTouch, Nexus One), various Apple devices (iPhone, the iPod Classic, Nano and Touch), and the PSP.

To make this happen, all you need do is drag and drop a file onto Video Converter, choose your output format, and click Convert. It's as easy as that.

While simplicity is generally a good thing, Miro Video Converter does take it perhaps a little too far. There are no advanced tweaks here whatsoever, no options to customise bitrate, resolution, audio formats or anything else, so you can't, say, reduce the size of a particular group of videos to guarantee that they'll fit on a nearly full device. You can't even drag multiple videos onto the program in a single operation - it's strictly one at a time.

Miro Video Converter 3.0 is a major upgrade. New features/changes include:

- Batch Processing
- More devices and output formats
- Better control for output size and aspect ratio
- Output of progressive MP4 files for web playback
- Improved WebM output quality with SD and HD options
- Thumbnail generation
- Some additional output options for video developers
- And it’s all wrapped up in an incredible new UI!

Verdict:

While Miro Video Converter is short on features, it's also exceptionally easy to use. And behind the scenes quality libraries like FFmpeg carry out the conversions, so you can sure of good results

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."
