Video Comparer
Find similar videos by content

Video Comparer is a commercial tool which can find similar videos by their content.

The important word here is "similar". The program doesn't just look for identical files. It can also match files when one has been cropped, rotated or resized. It's even able to identify videos where one clip exists within another (video A is a single scene extracted from video B).

Video Comparer works much like any other file comparison tool. Point it at the folder tree you'd like to examine, perhaps choose an option or two (there are four comparison modes, for example, from quick to full), and click Scan. The program crawls your folders, looking for videos (avi, mpg, mpeg, mkv, wmv, 3g2, 3gp, asf, asx, bsf, divx, f4v, flv, m2p, m2v, m4v, mov, mp4, ogv, rm, ts, vob and xvid files are supported).

The comparison process is surprisingly quick. The developer quotes 1 minute for 30 videos, 5 minutes for 100 videos or 40 minutes for 500 videos, and we wouldn't disagree.

Once Video Comparer has finished, it displays any likely duplicates. Synchronised timeline thumbnails show you the matching scenes, so you can see at a glance if the program is correct, and true duplicates may then be copied, moved or deleted with a click.

Please note, the trial version compares files only. It won't allow you to delete or back up duplicates, and it doesn't display the names of the files.

Version 1.06.0009 (Changelog):
Fixed random crash with VOB format. Added video format RMVB. Fixed Internet Explorer signature installation problem.

Verdict:

An accurate and surprisingly speedy video comparison tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
