Miro Video Converter 3.0
Quickly convert videos into iPod and Android-friendly formats

It's a fundamental law of video files that they're never in quite the format you need, especially for playback on mobile devices. Install Miro Video Converter and that needn't be a problem, though - the program provides the easiest possible way to transcode just about any video format to the Theora format, or files suitable to a range of mobile hardware: Android products (Behold II, Cliq/ DEXT, Droid, Eris/ Desire, G1, Hero, Magic/ myTouch, Nexus One), various Apple devices (iPhone, the iPod Classic, Nano and Touch), and the PSP.

To make this happen, all you need do is drag and drop a file onto Video Converter, choose your output format, and click Convert. It's as easy as that.

While simplicity is generally a good thing, Miro Video Converter does take it perhaps a little too far. There are no advanced tweaks here whatsoever, no options to customise bitrate, resolution, audio formats or anything else, so you can't, say, reduce the size of a particular group of videos to guarantee that they'll fit on a nearly full device. You can't even drag multiple videos onto the program in a single operation - it's strictly one at a time.

Miro Video Converter 3.0 is a major upgrade. New features/changes include:

- Batch Processing
- More devices and output formats
- Better control for output size and aspect ratio
- Output of progressive MP4 files for web playback
- Improved WebM output quality with SD and HD options
- Thumbnail generation
- Some additional output options for video developers
- And it’s all wrapped up in an incredible new UI!

Verdict:

While Miro Video Converter is short on features, it's also exceptionally easy to use. And behind the scenes quality libraries like FFmpeg carry out the conversions, so you can sure of good results

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
