First HD Video Converting Software for Multi-track HD Released, Free for Limited Time

Posted by Finnian Durkan Categories: HDTV, Software

WinX HDDigiarty Software has announced the release of WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe, the first converter to support multi-track HD videos.  WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe builds in 160 video and 50 audio codecs. This means that, no matter the codec (a piece of software that allows for digital compression/decompression) that you prefer based on your own personal needs/choices regarding video quality vs. file size. Without any third-party codecs, WinX can also easily support Multi-track HD video, such as BDAV, M2TS, MKV, AVCHD, HDTV and MPEG-TS video movies. It also supports converting all the HD and HD-Camcorder videos, to both portable and console players, such as iPad, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PS3, PSP, Xbox, Zune, PDA, Blackberry, Nokia, Android, Zen, and many others.  On top of all of this, WinX is also able to convert your HD videos at 5x-15x speed, making converting your videos not only easy but much, much faster.

So while you yourself may not be HD ready, what with your unsightly blemishes, pores big enough to serve guacamole out of, and makeup that looks like it was applied using a snow-blower, your videos are; that’s on you for buying a product that so greatly highlights all of your many shortcomings.  I’ll be over here with my beta-max shoulder-camcorder and boom-mike, making videos that blur to the point of resembling impressionistic art, thank you very much. But, if you’ve already taken the leap to HD, the WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe is available for a free download at the link below.

Creative Loses Missing Gigabyte Suit

Zen StoneCreative has lost a recent legal battle. It seems that the company reported that their MP3 player held more than it actually did. Their premise was that 1GB was one billion bytes 1,000,000,000B rather than the 1,073,741,824B it should be. The company finally discovered the error and corrected it after 2004, but if you bought one before then, you can probably make a minor sum off Creative. Choose between $35.00 off on a new Zen Stone or a 20% discount on your next purchase.
