Macs have always been media machines. This week we’re going to look at some powerful, free media applications.
VLC is the king of media, and the leading Open Source solution for streaming media. It doesn’t stop there, it supports dozens of formats including DVD and VCD.
VLC allows you to stream over a network, and gives you access to advanced options.
This utility allows you to convert WMA Windows Media audio into malleable formats. This is one to keep on your tool belt.
Here’s a free, easy to use video tool for converting video and burning it to VCD or DVD.
Options allow you to adjust advanced options for video and audio encoding. It comes in a straight-forward GUI.
Here’s another burning utility that allows you to burn multi-session discs. MSI does it using the new .msi format for creating multi-session images and burns them using Toast.
Okay, this one has nothing to do with this week’s theme.
Yes, this is yet another RSS reader, but I included it because I found the interface clean and its OS integration convenient. Web page rendering and easy sharing with Address Book contacts.
There you go, a full set of free media tools. Feel free to stream, edit and burn to your heart’s content.
