To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, i have compiled a list of 10 high quality Linux video applications, covering a broad spectrum of uses.

One of the many perks of being a Linux user is that you have plenty of excellent software to choose from. This is especially true if you are in search for an essential application like a media player because there are definitely loads of options. However, this could sometimes be a disadvantage particularly to new-to-Linux users for the reason that they could get overwhelmed with the many choices they have.

Here i have compiled some of the best free media players for Linux OS to play almost any video, audio formats you will ever need as a Linux user.

Here is the list of my Top 10 Linux Media Players:

1. MPlayer

MPlayer is a movie player which runs on many systems. It plays most MPEG/VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, RealMedia, Matroska, NUT, NuppelVideo, FLI, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5, WMV and even H.264 movies. Another great feature of MPlayer is the wide range of supported output drivers. It works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, DirectFB, but you can use GGI, SDL (and this way all their drivers), VESA (on every VESA compatible card, even without X11!) and some low level card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3Dfx and ATI), too! Most of them support software or hardware scaling, so you can enjoy movies in fullscreen. MPlayer supports displaying through some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the Siemens DVB, DXR2 and DXR3/Hollywood+. MPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls. European/ISO 8859-1,2 (Hungarian, English, Czech, etc), Cyrillic and Korean fonts are supported along with 12 subtitle formats (MicroDVD, SubRip, OGM, SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub, PJS and our own: MPsub). DVD subtitles (SPU streams, VOBsub and Closed Captions) are supported as well.

2. VLC Player

VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols without external codec or program.

It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

VLC can play:

* MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 / DivX files from a hard disk, a CD-ROM drive, and so on
* DVDs, VCDs, and Audio CDs
* From satellite cards (DVB-S)
* Several types of network streams: UDP/RTP Unicast, UDP/RTP Multicast, HTTP, RTSP, MMS, etc.
* From acquisition or encoding cards (on GNU/Linux and Windows only)

3. Xine

Xine is a free multimedia player. It plays back CDs, DVDs, and VCDs. It also decodes multimedia files like AVI, MOV, WMV, and MP3 from local disk drives, and displays multimedia streamed over the Internet. It interprets many of the most common multimedia formats available – and some of the most uncommon formats, too.

Microsoft's new operating system makes computing more intuitive—and less of a chore—while offering better overall performance.

The first thing you'll notice about Windows 7 is that it looks like Vista. It also works like Vista, in the sense that it has the same plumbing underneath, except for a very welcome graphics upgrade to DX11. However, it works much better than Vista, and most of Vista's annoyances have either been removed, or (mostly) can be changed so the system works the way you like. It takes personalisation to extremes.

See why and how Windows 7 is better than Windows Vista orWindows XP. Here is a detailed features list which you can do or can not do in different versions of Windows. Windows 7 has got some improved and some other brand new featuresincluded in it.

 Play all of your favorite PS 1 games on your computer using ePSXe Emulator.

Remember Final Fantasy VIII? Remember Eden, Bahamuth, Shiva?? Or Suikoden II, Parasite Eve, Lunar, Rayman, Hercules, Xenogears?? Those were old, good times. Ever wish to play those games all over again or maybe finish them for the first time? You can install and run the necessary software to turn your PC into a virtual PlayStation. Today there are a lot of tutorials on the net about how to download and play PlayStation 1 games on your computer, but only few of the tutorials are really working and the others are not completely finished or aren't explained good and you can't understand them. Here i'll write a full tutorial to run PSX games on your computer. I will be posting links where to get emulator, ISOs and more!

Lets start:

1. Download ePSXe (PS1 emulator)

First of all you need to Download ePSXe. It's available for Linux andWindows. I recommend you to download version v.1.6.0 or lower (don't download any beta version).

2. Download plugins

Plugins will be necessary. You can download plugins for both OS, Windowsand Linux. There are three plugins you basically need to run the program.
Go to http://www.ngemu.com/psx/epsxe.php?action=plugins and then press Ctrl+F and download the following plugins:

Graphic Plugins:

P.E.Op.S. Soft GPU (v1.18b)
Pete's GPU Plugins (v1.77)

Sound Plugins:

Eternal SPU (v1.41)
P.E.Op.S. DSound (v1.9)

CD Plugins (To make Game Rips such as ISOs and CDs run on ePSXe):

CDR Mooby (v2.8)
P.E.Op.S. CDR (v1.4)

You can also download Misc Plugins which allows you to play over the net, but those aren't necessary.

Extract the files into the "plugins" folder in the ePSXe. (It's NOT in C://Program Files...! Remember the path when you download the ePSXe program in the first place? And you double click on it to run it? Go there and you will find the "plugins" folder)

3. Download BIOS

Now it's time to get the BIOS in order to play the games. You'll need a file called scph1001.dll. Here is a website where you can download your BIOShttp://dragonballarena.gamesurf.it/english/media/giochi/psx.php.

After the download is complete, place it on the "bios" folder in the ePSXe.

If you are on Facebook, these tricks may be useful.

Right now almost half of the world is on Facebook, no wonder it is the #2 ranked website in the world. I sometimes start my day off by doing a bunch of stuff on Facebook that I realize if I don’t share with my readers, how selfish of me! So today I decided to share some of the wonderful tricks and some tips of Facebook that I have discovered. If you have interesting tips/tricks related to Facebook, please feel free to share in the comment box below.

1. See all your friend’s pictures in a tiles format
Login into Facebook and in your facebook sidebar click on the my friends link you will see a drop down box next to show, now hover or rollover your mouse and then click on one of the dashed lines (–). You will see a page full of al the profile pictures of all your facebook friends. The profile photos will be shown in a tiled format. It really looks cool try it.

2. Appear Offline To Selected Friends

Appear Offline to those who are pestering you. Simply, open FB Chat and click Friend’s list, then Create a new list with whatever name you want and include all those people you don’t want to chat with in that list. Now you can appear offline to them by moving the green slider to offline whenever you come online.

3. Facebook Pirate Language

This is my favorite Facebook tip and if you are a fan of "Pirate Movies” it will become yours too. Instead of seeing "Share with friends” you can see "Blabber t’ yer mates” and other pirate words/phrases. Basically, to make Facebook communicate with you in old Pirate Language, Simple go to your Current Language Settings (located at the bottom of the page) and click the language as English (Pirate).

4. See creator’s profile

Creator in a facebook community is the first profile created in your community. Generally you can’t search for his profile. But by using this cool facebook trick you can do it, just follow some simple steps. Goto your profile page and look at your id in the url in the address bar of your web browser. The first few numbers represent your school ID, so if you change the rest of the numbers to zero and the last number to one. It will show you the first person or the first profile created from your school, college or work place. This profile is known as "Creator’s” profile. This trick is not much of use, but just in case.

5. Hide Your Online Status From Selected Friends:

So you want to use Facebook chat but don’t want some people to see your online status? Simply open up the Facebook Chat and click on Friends List. Start creating a new list called BlockList.

Once the list is created, add those friends to the list that you want to appear offline to. When the list is complete, hover your mouse to the little green icon adjacent to the list and click Go Offline. Bingo! You will now appear offline to everybody in the BlockList.

6. View a Friend’s Profile Without Messy Applications:

If you are like me, you often get annoyed by the dozens of silly applicationsthat people have added to their profile. Here’s a Grease Monkey script that allows you to view any profile without all those applications. Remember: the Mozilla Firefox web browser is a prerequisite for running Greasemonkey.

7. Display Your Facebook Status On Your Wordpress Blog:

Want to display your Facebook status updates on your Wordpress blog? There is a plugin that does exactly that. StatusPress lets you display your status updates to a widget on your Wordpress blog.

8. Give wooden look to facebook

This greasemonkey javascript will give your facebook pages an antiquated and wooden look. So, don’t just get stick to old boring design, keep trying out new ones.  ... Read more »
