I purchased the Flip4Mac Pro version ($29) because for my work I've sometimes needed to convert wmv files to mov or mp4 files for editing on my Mac. Flip4Mac worked like a charm. I was surprised that this wasn't included in Quicktime or as a paid add-on. Maybe some licensing issue with Microsoft. But Microsoft has openly endorsed Flip4Mac as Windows Media Components for QuickTime on their website. It's pretty much the only known component for OSX that supports Windows Media Video and Audio. That format itself is a dying breed, where the preference now is mp4. Mac's native format is mov, and web browsers are now also using webm and ogv. So with all of these formats, being able to convert between them all is crucial. Uploading to YouTube generally does the job for you, but sometimes there are cases if you're viewing a video on your computer or editing, using a standalone player or a website theme and you need to convert the files on your own. The WMV and WMA formats are what Microsoft Windows Movie Maker uses, which is the free program distributed with Windows (kinda like Paint is for images), so it's still widely in use especially amongst Windows users. There are several pricing levels that are both affordable and make sense: - Flip4Mac Player which allows you to play Windows Media files - The Pro version allows to you to import and convert using QuickTime - The Studio version has higher dimensions - The Studio Pro HD has higher quality with two-pass encoding

Pros :

- Converts WMV and WMA files to Mac formats for editing or viewing - High-quality, affordable price - Handles other files formats too like ASF - Can do high dimension and high-quality encoding

Cons :

- Costs money, but worth it to get a more quality product that's updated over time - Doesn't work with DRM content, but DRM really isn't in use any more anyway.

WinZip is one of those software solutions that is mandatory for effective work and file sharing: it saves too much time and eliminates so much repetitive actions that you can’t afford not to install it. WinZip greatly simplifies file sharing by compressing large volumes of information into single and compact files which can be easily emailed to a coworker or friend, or uploaded to a cloud storage solution. In addition, WinZip supports password protection just in case a confidential file is sent to the wrong e-mail address. WinZip has nearly universal compatibility, being able to compress any file format or type. The software can be tried for free, and after that the price to pay is only a one-time free of $29.95, which is a very good price considering all the trouble the software saves.

Pros :

  • 1)Greatly simplifies file sharing. Instead of sending or uploading multiple files, they can be compressed into a WinZip file and sent/uploaded as a single file.
  • Excellent compatibility. If a file is rejected, it is most likely a damaged file.
  • Simplifies sending files through e-mail: Many file formats that are rejected by e-mail clients go through without trouble if compressed into a WinZip file.
  • WinZip includes password protection, which makes sure a compressed group of files will only be accessed by those who are allowed to do so.
  • It can be tried for free, and once the trial period is over the software is affordable.
  • Total file size is smaller if a group of files is compressed with WinZip, as opposed to sending them individually.
  • It integrates with right-click options in Windows, which makes the software very intuitive and easy to use.

Cons :

There are some alternative file compression formats which are not supported by WinZip, although they are used very rarely. Most of the time, compressed file formats will be compatible with WinZip.

As an experienced video editor, I like the video editing in Nero 11 Platinum much more than I expected to like it. I am impressed with some of the fancier editing creature comforts. On the other hand, I am a bit disappointed by the lack of integration.

Highly recommended. Flip4Mac could be considered as one of the essential Mac applications, one of the most popular video and music players for Mac OS X. Overall, the price is fair since you’ll really get a lot of features which you don’t have by default within your Mac OS X.

WinZip Mac Edition is comparable to its Windows counterpart. It is fast and effective, but it is a Windows app at heart and there are cheaper alternatives available that are just as capable.
