A powerful open-source video editor

Kdenlive is a powerful open-source non-linear video editor. It was first developed for Linux, but has been ported to OS X and a Windows port is now available.

The program uses FFmpeg to import and use almost any audio or video format, with no need to convert or reencode your clips.

Drag and drop those clips onto the multi-track timeline and you're able to apply a host of effects (mostly keyframeable), transitions and more.

Analysis tools on hand include histograms, audio meters, waveforms, vectorscopes and more, and a configurable interface enables rearranging all of this to suit your needs.

PLEASE NOTE: the download doesn't require installation, but it won't work unless you separately download a copy of FFMPEG. Don't let that put you off, though, it's easy.

1. Download and unzip Kdenlive
2. Download FFmpeg shared 64bit build from
3. Unzip the FFmpeg download
4. Copy the content of the FFmpeg “bin” subfolder (.dll and .exe files) to kdenlive-windows folder (kdenlive.exe and ffmpeg.exe end up in the same folder)
5. Copy the FFmpeg “presets” subfolder inside kdenlive-windows folder (you'll have the folders \kdenlive-windows and kdenlive-windows\presets)
6. Launch kdenlive.exe, wait for the interface to appear, close and re-open it.


Kdenlive is a powerful editor with a lot of features and functionality, but if you're trying it on Windows, keep in mind that it's a brand new port. There are certain to be all kinds of odd bugs and issues. Don't use the program for any big important projects until you've played around with it for a while and know it'll do what you need.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
