DivX 10.8.5
Create, play, stream and convert high definition video with this powerful suite

DivX 10 is a collection of tools to help you play, convert and stream video files.

Specifically, during installation you're able to install four components: the DivX Codec Pack, DivX Converter, DivX Player and DivX Web Player. (The installer will by default install the Google Toolbar, too, but no attempt is made to hide this, so if you pay attention and clear the relevant checkbox it won't happen.)

As previously, the heart of the package is the DivX Player, a stylish and featured-packed tool which delivers high quality playback of DivX, AVI, MKV, MP4 and MOV files.

And this release sees the player extended with a media server, which allows you to stream contents in your selected videos to any DLNA-compatible device.

Elsewhere, the Converter makes it very easy to convert even high definition content to DivX format. It's based around a new transcoding engine which supports hardware acceleration via Intel Quick Sync Video, which DivX says can deliver anything up to a 10x speed increase over the previous technology.

The Converter can now also convert your videos into iPhone or iPad-friendly MP4's (just choose the appropriate profile from the list).

And if you've become a little tired of DivX in the past due to their habit of charging for just about everything they could, the company are eager to point out that this time, just about everything is free. The conversion engine, DLNA streaming, iPhone/ iPad output, it's all free; so far it looks like only the Converter's MPEG-2 plugin will cost money (and even then, only when it appears in the final release).

What's new in DivX 10.8.5 (see full changelog for more)?

- DivX Software now fully supports HiDPI displays and resolution up to 5K
- DivX Player provides better handling for H.264 format (codecconfig inside STRF tag is now supported)
- DivX Media Server provides control over caching functionality. Users are able to speed-up casting on Chromecast and Roku devices
- DivX Player was fixed to play back mp3 audio correctly after seeking
- DivX Converter Pro supplies new UHD DCI 4096×2160px 120fps profile for encoding
- DivX Converter improves handling of third-party libraries and fixes number of crashes related to them (fixed loading of nhAsusStrixOSD.dll)
- DivX Converter contains a fix for audio-video mistiming after trimming
- DivX Media Server provides Telemetry dashboard for overlook and troubleshooting purposes
- Numerous localization fixes and improvements in all DivX applications
- Other minor bugfixes and improvements

Verdict:

There are more versatile players and video conversion tools around, but if you're particularly interested in DivX content then the latest release does greatly improved performance and some useful new features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
