Two freewares that you shouldn’t miss

Well if there is 1 thing that is present on everyone’s PC is multimedia stuff. ie song, photos and videos. Now people have habit of keeping one software for managing each media type. e.g. For viewing multimedia files… winamp or media player are defacto standards. But when it comes to image viewers or media converters (video en/decoders) people really have bad choice.

Even I was one of those that were never satisfied with my current software. Either it was featureless or was ugly on the eyes. But recently two softwares have made room in my permanent collection, and best of all both are freeware. Try them out you wont regret it:

  • FastStone Image Viewer – Forget AC/DC or whatever else thing you use use this for instant full screen previews, with gallery strip and tools activated when you touch screen corners. A typical browser mode also supported with neat skin. Freeware image browsers don’t get better than this.
  • MediaCoder – Feed up with high cost Video Converters, that either leave anything missing or feature or a too complex interface then try this. Video types supported are mobile media (3gp), Flash video (flv), Podcasts (mp4), PSP Video and all other kind of typical avi codecs (xvid, divx, wmv etc). And if thats not all.. it all comes in a nice easy interface FREE of cost.

    I just recently found FastStone, and have been using to organize photos for my autobiography. I find it quite fast, efficient, and easy to figure out how to do whatever you want to do. Definitely a good program.
