MediaCoder

MediaCoder is a free universal batch media transcoder, which nicely integrates most popular audio/video codecs and tools into an all-in-one solution. With a flexible and extendable architecture, new codecs and tools are added in constantly as well as supports for new devices. MediaCoder intends to be the swiss army knife for media transcoding in all time and at this moment, it already has millions of users from 170+ countries all over the planet.

MediaCoder is a front-end/GUI for a collection of audio/video command line utilities and dynamic libraries (including audio/video codecs and multiplexers). MediaCoder maintains a unified parameter tree whose leaves (parameter values) can be altered through the application GUI, a web-based tree view, user interfaces for specific devices (e.g. PSP, iPhone) and conforming HTTP requests. It maps the parameter tree into command line options or calling parameters for various codecs and tools. MediaCoder pipes the decoder’s output into the encoder’s input, rather than using temporary files. This allows it to convert large amounts of data without using excessive disk space. Some of the included utilities are also patched to add extra interfaces.

MediaCoder has a built-in media streaming server which can be used to stream out audio and video files through HTTP protocol. It is able to apply on-the-fly transcoding for both audio and video streaming with some of its supported audio and video codecs.

  • Features In Brief:
    • Select all folders via drag & drop.
    • Convert to and from many audio and video compression formats and re-multiplex into various container formats in batches
    • Full control over transcoding parameters, you can learn about audio/video encoding and play with various codecs
    • Strong decoding capability for partial or corrupted contents
    • Simplified UI for popular mobile devices (e.g. PSP, iPhone/iPod)
    • Fully standalone, no dependance on system codecs/splitters
    • Extension (scripting language) infrastructure to expand user interfaces and improve user experience
  • Typical Applications:

HotKeyz

HotKeyz

Launch applications, commands, open files and folders with hotkeys.
You can work faster and more efficiently by using your keyboard instead of your mouse.

HotKeyz lets you easily create and maintain a categorized list of your hotkeys. Each hotkey, a key combination on your keyboard, will launch a command. You decide which commands go with which hotkeys. Some of these commands are internal HotKeyz commands and the rest are Windows commands. HotKeyz will help you to manage repetitive tasks on your PC with speed and minimal effort.

The Parameter option gives you parameter control when launching another application like Internet Explorer and surfing to a specific site as parameter. For example “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe” with the parameter “www.skynergy.com”. It also features launching your e-mail window when composing a new e-mail even if your e-mail program is not active or focused.

Define shortcuts for Launching files, Minimizing the current active window, showing HotKeyz itself or hiding it. The HotKeyz system tray icon will change to indicate a key press. The shortcuts work with the WIN, CTRL, ALT, SHIFT modifier keys and most other keyboard keys. You can even enable or disable unwanted Hotkeys without deleting them from the Key List.
