Get the full codec and bitrate information for your media files with MediaTab

Now we can store a full collection of music, video and photos on a PC and easily share them with friends you could be excused for thinking that all media problems are now over. However, given the plethora of file types, encapsulation methods and codecs, you can find some files quite difficult to play.

If you don’t have the correct software installed, you may find that the file won’t render correctly or even won’t play at all. If you’ve mistakenly ripped something at the wrong bitrate, you could be saddled with an unwieldy large file or conversely one that’s poor quality. Clearly it makes sense to be able to check up on this information from time to time.

MediaTab is a Windows shell extension that enables you to get to this information simply by right-clicking the troublesome file and choosing Properties. It adds an additional tab to the properties of all media files so that all the relevant information is to hand.

Once you’ve downloaded and installed the program it’s up and running and you can benefit from the additional shell features. Right-click any media file that you’d like to investigate further and choose Properties. Switch to the MediaTab tab on the properties dialog and scroll through to find the information that you need.

This lists the bitrate used in the file, the audio and video codecs, screen resolutions, encoded options, languages and any other embedded information that the file contains. And if the file won’t play, you can now search for the required codec online, armed with all the critical information you need.

Version 1.4:
    •Added extension manager for adding/deleting file associations.
    •Added option to change the text view font

Verdict:

If you need help analysing what’s wrong with a particular media file, MediaTab provides you with easy access to all the critical information you need.

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.
