KM Media Player

The most annoying experience while trying to play a video file is to see that your media player has failed to open it.The main reason for this problem is the non availability of Codecs(Coding decoding files) for that particular video format.One way to overcome this problem is to install a good codec pack like Klite kodec pack.But still you may fail with some formats.

KM Player which is currently supported by Pandora TV is the best media player available in the industry today.I can say this with confidence based on my own experiance and the feedbacks from many of my friends to whom I have recommended this cute utility.Surprising fact is that I have not found any format which cannot be played by KM Player till date.It has got a sleek design and a decent look.Many skins are also available to make it more beautiful.Quality of video playback is excellent and it has got loads of useful features as bonus. A portable version of KM Player is also available which you can download here.

Greenfish Icon Editor

Greenfish Icon Editor is an easy-to-use, yet professional icon and cursor editor.It is in many ways different from other icon editors and is somewhat like a photo editor.It uses ICO and CUR formats and can store multiple images in any color depth. It supports dynamic color depth. ie. Greenfish Icon Editor will automatically detect the count of colors used, and update the color depth accordingly.You can also create animated cursors and GIF files.Example is shown here.

Greenfish Icon Editor Pro can currently open and save ICO, CUR, ANI, PNG, XPM, BMP, JPEG and GIF formats.
  • The ANI format is used for storing animated cursors.
  • The PNG format is the ideal solution when saving only a single page.
  • The XPM format is mainly used on Linux platforms.
  • The BMP format does not support transparency and is always uncompressed.
  • The JPEG format does not support transparency and has a lossy compression method. It is excellent when saving photos but far not suitable for icons.
  • The GIF format can store at most 256 colors using a lossless compression method, which is not as powerful and modern as the PNG compression, but it can be used for storing animations
  • Use batch conversion if you want to convert several image files to icons, icons to image files, etc. at one time.

  3. It can be used for Creating artistic text.
