Learn more about the innards of any video or audio file

It's taken a very long time, but you've finally found and downloaded that audio or video file you've been looking for. So it's particularly frustrating that it won't play. At all. But why?

You could try downloading the file again, just in case it was corrupted. Maybe using another media player would help. How about installing a new codec pack? Troubleshooting media problems is tricky, and you could spend hours trying to figure out the problem.

There is a quicker alternative, though. Just open your audio or video file in MediaInfo, and you'll see lots of technical information about it: video and audio stream type, codec, aspect ratio, frames per second, sample rate and more.

If the file is broken - a missing video stream, say - then you'll see that immediately, and won't have to waste time tweaking your own system. And if it's just using a codec that you don't have installed, then you can quickly grab the latest version, and hopefully fix your playback problems right away. (There's even a "go to the web site of this video codec" button, so it's only a single click away.)

As a bonus, MediaInfo also displays file tags: album and track name, performer, composer, publisher, whatever it might contain. And wide support for video and audio formats means it'll work with just about any file type - MKV, OGM, AVI, DivX, WMV, QuickTime, Real, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DVD (VOB), OGG, MP3, WAV, RA, AC3, DTS, AAC, M4A, AU, AIFF and more.

Version 18.12 brings (changelog):

+ Android version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.mediaarea.mediainfo
+ DCP: support of multi-reel packages
+ EBUCore: added some FFV1 related metadata
+ JPEG: better info display of CYMK files
+ Provide source of the color related metadata (container or stream) (hidden by default)
+ MXF: display more information when wrapper/essence values are detected as not same
+ MXF: ProRes profiles
+ MPEG-4: ProRes RAW support
+ MPEG-TS: add support of parsing some ETSI TS 103-433 messages
x MPEG-2 Video: variable GOP detection fix
x MPEG-7 export: some fields were missing due to the removal of some legacy fields
x ADTS: Fix display of channel count for 8-channel streams
x ID3v2: fix some date related issues
x I298, ID3v2: fix wrong read of recording date in some cases
x I1032, PBCore2: fix essenceFrameSize with non Video tracks
x I1096, JPEG: fix crash with one file
x Several other crash and memory leak fixes

Verdict:

You won't need MediaInfo often, but when you do it'll come in very handy. Grab a copy now

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.110

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.110 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
