Free Video Dub 2.0.22.295
Trim unwanted sections of videos without losing quality

Free Video Dub is a simple tool which can remove the unwanted sections of videos, without needing to re-encode the file and reduce its quality.

The program has a very basic interface, with no menus - just about everything you need is presented on a single toolbar. Essentially you must open a video (MPG, MOV, MP4, FLV, AVI and other formats are supported), select the left and right trim points of any given section, then press "X" to delete it. Repeat that for as many times as you like, click "Save Video" when you're done, and Free Video Dub saves the trimmed version of the file.

It's not always as simple as that, of course. The first problem appeared when we tried using the toolbar buttons to step frame by frame through our test video; the program actually moved in half second increments, instead. Would the built-in scene detection tool help? No, not really: Free Video Dub locked up when we first used it, and when it did work we still only saw the same half second resolution.

Dragging the selection point with the mouse did give us a little more control, though. We were able to use the program to successfully trim MPG, MOV, FLV, MP4 and WEBM videos, and the saved files all worked as expected (our unwanted sections were trimmed, but otherwise the videos played correctly).

Please note, the program will by default install a toolbar & other "extras" along with its own code. If you're not interested, pay attention during setup, choose the "Custom Installation" option, and clear the relevant checkboxes.

Verdict:

It really needs the ability to step through a video frame by frame, but if you can live with more approximate cuts then Free Video Dub is an easy way to get the job done

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
