If you work at a movie shop then I believe that this is the best application that there is to burn music or audio recordings to your blank or empty cd.You can also sync the items that you want synched. You can compose a playlist and then when you are satisfied you can decide whether to play it or not. When you plug in your mobile phone you can decide on which medium to play your music and for me I choose windows media player because for me it is the best although it has a very outdated interface I just love it the way it is. There is a music section that is categorized into artist album and genre.

Play your songs and videos through streaming from your car to your home through media player application

How can you resist using a built in media player application tool with lots of skins and supports tons of file formats? Because of my busy day schedule work schedule and my graduate studies at night, I find it difficult to look for media player application that is open source and versatile with other platforms and supports multi formats.

I tried using this built in media player application with my Windows Operating System which allows me to open MP3s, MP4s, and Flip Videos. Next amazing feature of this tool is the remote media streaming which allows me to play MP3s and MP4 streams at my desktop computers or mobile devices from other location like audio player inside the car. Another fascinating features are the smarter DVD playback, Jump Lists and song previews for 15 seconds.

The bottom line is that this media player application has evolved through time. It has now new features that you will surely enjoy like what I did. I am a real fan of this remote media streaming and smarter DVD playback. I will definitely continue to explore this tool to maximize its features.

Pros

  • An extensible and rock-solid application
  • It has great psycho acoustic effects

Cons

  • It has weak playback control on some file types
  • It does not handle photos

Drive various Trains and Travel from one Place to Another

By Daren Garius

On Friday, August 22, 2014

It is safe to say that Train Simulator 2014 is one of the best simulations in its franchise or maybe in its category. I find its graphics very realistic as well as the sound of the train engine. Plus, the scenery is just beautiful. If you are a newbie to this game, no need to worry. The game provides a tutorial at the beginning that will help you learn and understand and the different aspects of this driving game. Also, I find its interface simple and straightforward. In addition, there are lots of different trains that you can choose. Moreover, I like that they enhanced the Career mode. It is more challenging and you can also pick extended scenarios. On the other hand, I think the only flaw of this game is that there are only three routes available. Nonetheless, this game is very entertaining and exciting especially for train enthusiasts. All in all, Train Simulator 2014 is a remarkable simulation game that provides a realistic and exhilarating gaming experience.

Pros

  • It has a realistic gameplay
  • Lot of trains to choose from

Cons

  • Only three routes are available
