MediaCoder uses various open source audio and video codecs, among several proprietary codecs and tools to transcode different audio/video formats and has many extra features. Common uses for the program include compression, file type conversion and extraction of audio from video files. Many formats are supported, including MP3, Vorbis, Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), Windows Media Audio (WMA), RealAudio, WAV, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, MPEG-4 Part 2, MPEG-2, Audio Video Interleave (AVI), Video CD and DVD-Video.
MediaCoder is free of charge and is supported by bundling OpenCandy software recommendation service in its installer. There are text ads in the software GUI, and by default a web page containing ads is loaded on every startup. This behavior qualifies the application as adware. There is also a pop-up screen that loads after each file once a quota of file conversions has been met. This pop-up self-closes in a batch convert after various timeframes (sometimes as long as an hour, but it seems to vary) and requests a $20 donation in exchange for ceasing that function. This qualifies this application as nagware.
Prior to 2008, MediaCoder was a free and open-source software application and was available on SourceForge. MediaCoder was a nominee of SourceForge.NET 2007 Community Choice Award of Best Project for Multimedia along with Audacity, InkScape and FFDShow. On December 2009 however, Stanley Huang announced that the project is no longer hosted on SourceForge and no longer open-source.  A list of older versions, release dates and release notes can be found here. Since December 2009, MediaCoder has become a proprietary adware for which no source code is available.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
