Any Video Converter: My Ultimate Video Converter

Need to convert your video to play in your iphone or ipad?  Or on your android phone or tablet?  No need to worry because I have a freeware that can convert almost any type of video and that is called Any Video Converter or AVC for short.  I've been using this freeware for a long time now and it has all the features I need plus some extras to boot.  Although, the time it took to convert a video depends on the file size of the original video.

The freeware can convert various video formats such as OGM, RMVB, RM, WMV, QT, WebM, FLV, MOD, TS, TP, DVR-MS, Divx, etc. to AVI, WMV, MP4, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, FLV, SWF, MKV, 3GP and 3G2.  It can convert the videos to portable devices such as Apple products (iphone, ipod touch, ipod video, ipod classic, ipad, apple tv), Sony products (PSP, PS3, Walkman), Android tablets and phones (there are selected model of android tablets and phone), Microsoft product (Zune and Xbox 360).

One of the extra features of the freeware is it can download the videos directly from YouTube/Google/MetaCafe/Nico.  All you need to do is to copy and paste the URL in the "Import Video from Internet" window by clicking the "Add URLs" button.  Another extra feature is that the freeware supports CUDA acceleration from NVIDIA video cards.  So if your PC has a NVIDIA CUDA-enabled video card you can utilize this feature.

If you want to know the full features of this awesome freeware please go to this link.  I really recommend this freeware for your video conversion needs.

My Alternative Ipod Touch: LG-LU3700

For a while, I longed to have a portable media player (PMP).  I have my eyes on different models but the iPod touch stood the crowd.  But due to my budget limit, I end up buying a second hand android phone.  The picture above is the LG-LU3700, a Korean-only phone.  It's specs is similar to LG Optimus One (P500) but the difference is that the LU3700 is a CDMA phone so it can't be used to call and text in a GSM network.  That's the only feature of the phone that you can't use directly however there's a device called Gmate that will allow you to call and text to a GSM network.  But I have a GSM phone already so I used this phone just for playing music, video and casual gaming.  

Like I said earlier, the phone is similar to LG-P500 so it runs an Android OS.  I'm able to update the phone from version 2.2 to 2.3.4 by using the update software from LG website (using LG-P500 as the search device).  I tried to root the phone in different methods but to no avail.   I'm still happy with this phone because I can still install different apps.  Stay tuned for my upcoming posts regarding android apps that I used.
