Since I don’t do much video encoding for mobile devices, I have to admit that I am comfortable to use a simple video encoding tool that just works to do the job easily without much hassle. If you are looking for an all in one video/audio converter software, especially to encode video for mobile devices playback, XMedia Recode might be the software for you.
Basically, XMedia Recode is a GUI for FFmpeg, an open source complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. XMedia Recode can encode and decode major video/audio containers and codecs such as 3GP, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AAC, AC3, AMR, ASF, AVI, FLAC, FLV,H.261, H.263, H.264, M4A, M1V, M2V, M4V, Matroska(MKV), MMF, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, TS, TRP, MP2, MP3, MP4, MP4V, MOV,QT, OGG, PSP, SWF, VOB, WAV, WMA and WMV. XMedia Recode can also use unprotected DVD as the video source.
What makes XMedia Recode really great to encode video for mobile devices is the built in presets setting, and there are a lot of them. As for version 184.108.40.206, there are more than 530 built in presets.

I’m pretty sure some of us are actually get annoyed with Flash animations. While Firefox and Chrome have their own FlashBlock extensions, Opera Browser users don’t have the option to install extensions to the browser. However, in Opera Browser, you can actually block Flash (and other plugin) by enabling the ‘on demand plugin’ option. While this is not as inconvenience as using the FlashBlock extension where you get the extra functionalities such as the option to whilelist a site, this is better than nothing for Opera Browser users.
