Xilisoft 3GP Video Converter 5.1.2.1010

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

I’ve worked with a couple of 3GP converters and Xilisoft converter isn’t one I would consider as an excellent tool.

It is limited in file formats that it converts and that alone poses a huge problem because some of my favorite videos are in rmvb formats.

I have been using IMtoo3GP for a while now and I think its one to reckon with. However, I know a couple of Xilisoft works and I’m sure they are going to improve on this one. This also program works well if you don’t mind the output resolution.

Video inspector

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

If I dint know better, I would say that this program withholds detailed information. This program works well but for the hitches in its installation, where one checks accept/decline seeming “license agreement” not knowing it’s about something else entirely. When it comes to getting rite codec for videos, I’d say well-done.

It actually installs rite software for your videos; it has an edge over MediaInfo in that regard. But I’ll go for G-spot and MediaInfo on a good day. VideoIspector has a couple of features that I consider just okay.

  • Container support : AVI, Matroska, MPEG I, MPEG II, QuickTime
  • Codecs requirements automatic detection
  • Lists installed Audio & Video Codecs
  • FourCC Changer
  • Bitrate Grapher
  • Batch file analysis, exports to CSV and HTML files
  • File intergrity check
  • Download required codecs (Online Database)
  • Automatic, content based container format detection
  • Displays movie info : Duration, streams
  • Displays Video stream info : Resolution, bitrate, frames per seconds (FPS)
  • Displays Audio stream info : Sample rate, bitrate, number of channels
  • Calculates video quality factor
  • Ability to burn CDs/DVDs (requires CopyToDVD)
  • Windows Shell Integration (Drag’n’Drop and Context menu)
  • International support
  • And much more

ShellMenuView – Right-click context menu editor

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

ShellMenuView is a little program for showing a list of your context menu items ( the menu that pops up whenever you right-click a file or folder in Windows Explorer), and gives you a very easy method of disabling any unnecessary menu items listed. This can enable you to have a cleaner, tidier menu system in your right click menus by getting rid of the options you never use.

This program will work fine on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. If you happen to be still running Windows 98 for some reason, you can still use this program for viewing the menu items list, but the disabling/enabling can’t work on this version of Windows. (The disabling feature is only made possible by adding ‘LegacyDisable’ key to the particular menu item in the Registry, and this Registry key isn’t supported by Windows 98)

It requires no installation and is freeware.
