Review: LEAWO Blu-ray Ripper Version 7

As more people are moving to digital media libraries and running their own media servers, it’s nice to have options for converting your old disk libraries into digital ones. I was recently given the opportunity to review some software to RIP Blu-ray and DVD discs.

Based on my opinion, the most common users don’t know how to rip a DVD or Blu-ray movie to a digital format; making them portable and convenient. This is where it’s important to have software that facilitates that function for them in the easiest way possible. There’s plenty of options on the Internet that are available to do this, but today I’m going to take a look at LEAWO Blu-ray Ripper version 7.

Microsoft 2015: They’re making a lot of good decisions!

Microsoft has been going through some personality changes here lately. And to be truthfully honest, it’s very welcome. Over the past couple weeks we’ve seen some very positive news coming out of the Microsoft campus.

It just seems Microsoft is changed it’s attitude and it’s more open, and more one. It’s almost like they understand WHO they are now. As if they are having a premonition of who they could be, who they should be seen as and they want to make that a reality.

The New Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Limitations

249

Back on August 1 of 2014, I did a review of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium. Personally speaking, I was very proud of the article that I produced; mainly because when I do my reviews they are not the typical regurgitation of the sales material that everyone else puts on their website. I try to go through the applications when I do a review and point out some of the high points of the software; things that really stand out.

It seems that I was the only website that took the time to do an installation of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13, do some testing, play with the software and then report on the highs and lows of the software. In the past, I think Nuance really appreciated that extra digging into the application.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking, historically, has been a great software package. Nuance has done a great job of increasing the performance and responsiveness of the speech recognition software over the years.

Review: DVDFab 2D to 3D Converter

DVDFab_2d_to_3D_converter

A couple of weeks ago, I received a copy of DVDFab v9 and I’ve been in the process of doing a review on the different levels of its abilities. Most people recognize DVDFab for being able to make copies of DVDs and Blu-ray discs, but DVDFab also has additional video conversion abilities that makes it even more important and a more well-rounded software package.

For instance, in addition to its abilities to work with DVD and Blu-ray discs, it can convert standard two-dimensional video into three-dimensional video [2D to 3D Converter].   The process is actually pretty simple.

Review: AoaoPhoto’s Video to GIF Converter

Recently, you may have noticed more websites using animated GIFs to get your attention on a variety of topics they might be covering. This is an alternative to embedding a YouTube video. Sometimes it’s easier to show just a short animated GIF then trying to embed the entire video.

As a publisher, this is when you need to have a utility software that allows you to extract just a small portion of the video and create an animated GIF.

I was recently contacted by a developer of the software package that does exactly this; it converts videos into animated GIFs so that they can be embedded in websites or simply emailed. The software package is called Video to GIF Converter from AoaoPhoto.
