Machete Lite
Trim unwanted frames from your AVI and WMV videos with this simple lossless editor

Machete Lite is a simple video editor which makes it easy to trim surplus content from AVI and WMV videos. And it does so without re-encoding them, so you can remove an unwanted intro from a clip and save the enhanced results, without any loss in quality.

The program is extremely basic, but this does at least make it very easy to use. Open a video and you can play it as normal; you're able to step through, frame by frame if necessary, to find the footage you need (or, perhaps, don't need); select the beginning and end of the section you'd like to trim, and you can then delete it at a click.

There are multiple ways to carry out most actions, which again helps to improve usability. So to step through your video, for instance, you can drag a slider, click a toolbar button, choose a menu option, press the left or right arrow keys, or use dedicated keyboard shortcuts.

And although the program is really just about trimming unwanted frames, there are one or two small extras on offer here. So a Tag Editor helps you to edit the file's metadata, for instance; you can save the current selection as a separate video, or just save the current frame as an image (though only in BMP format).

Please note, the authors also produce a more powerful commercial version of Machete. This supports many more formats (MP4, MOV, FLV and so on), can extract the audio stream from a movie or replace it with another file, and includes a few other capabilities. It's yours for $19.95 and you can find out more at the Machete site.

Verdict:

It's extremely basic, but if you're just looking for a way to trim your AVI/ WMV videos then Machete is a quick and easy way to get the job done.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
