Updated software

XAVC support:

For the first outstanding feature, many powerful camcorders can shoot under this XAVC mode, like Sony, Panasonic, JVC and Canon all have many series HD Camcorder which can such job.

Most XAVC codec will shot in MXF format, this may be good for importing quality ,but may be a big problem for their users. Although Sony has offered their XAVC plug-in to help customer to solve this problem, but many users still replay that they can’t do anything about their videos. How to tackle that? New Pavtube relevant Video converter software can handle this highest level video standard. XAVC can support 4K (4.96×2160 and 3840×2160), which just cater the trend of 4K.

Add H.265/HEVC Decode and Encode:

All Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate products have added the H.265/HEVC decode/encode. You may very family about H.264/MPEG-4, but may not know about this H.265/HEVC. Actually, those two codec are said to double the date compression at the same level of video quality. This H.265 can be said as the Intro Time of 4K Generation. This H.265/HEVC is considered not only play a remarkable role on improving the image quality but also can support 4K resolution to UHDTV, the highest level can up to 8192×4320 (8k).

Like the hottest Samsung NX1 has already explore this brand new market. The 205-point phase-detection AF, 4K film resolution, H.265 compression coding, 15fps high-speed continuous shooting, etc., Samsung NX1 seems has already won the game.

But with this fast update of the H.265 camera, the related peripheral support software seems not get enjoy strength. Many media player and NELs still stick on the H.264, so how to get your H.265/HEVC video into compatible while quality maintained? The brand new Pavtube relevant Video software will be the best solution to deal with the H.265/HEVC. No quality drop, fast conversion, smooth playback, all you need is in this new Pavtube.

Everyone’s happy in Stinky Cigars, the secret town where all the holiday characters live – except Murray Weiner, the grumpy owner of Murray’s Holiday Diner. But when Santa is knocked out cold by an experimental toy – the Jack-in-the-Boxer – it’s up to Murray to save Christmas – which he does, in a weirdly wonderful way. This is the story told in the movie-How Murray Saved Christmas.

If you buy How Murray Saved Christmas on iTunes and want to transfer it to Surface Pro to watch, then you got it. However, iTunes video is DRM protected which will be disfavored as it prevents them from fully accessing to those videos on non-apple devices, not to mention the rental ones. Therefore, to remove iTunes DRM for watching limitlessly on Surface Pro seems to be of top priority.

One of the stronger selling point for the Kindle Fire Android tablets is that they can stream Amazon Instant Video. However, you will find when putting the Amazon video on other Android tablets, you will find the video files can’t be read correctly. So any solutions? Luckily, I found several ways to fix this issue, keep on reading.

put amazon instant video to android Any easy way to Stream and Play Purchased Amazon WMV Video on Android Tablets?

Update 12 September 2014: Good News is that Amazon has released a new version of their shopping app for Android. It now supports Prime Video, so there are now two ways to access Amazon instant video on your Android device.

The Official Way

This is pretty simple. All you need to do is download and install the two following apps (which I found via Android Police). Be sure to install the shopping app first:

Amazon Shopping

File name: com.amazon.mShop.android-5.0.0.apk

MD5: C99F86CAF39444F93E54C216C1CD7A4B

Amazon Instant Video

File name: com.amazon.avod.thirdpartyclient-1.0.apk

MD5: 50FAC68351E0A7AFD0E6AC0559C80505

Once you have the apps installed, log in to your Amazon account. Navigate through the menu on the left and find the Instant video option. Select it.

If you can stream video, great. If you cannot, or if the app crashes, you should try the unofficial solution.

The unOfficial Way

If you spend a little time installing and configuring a couple files, you can stream Amazon Instant Video on just about any of the newer Android tablets. This is a pretty simple trick which should be in the reach of most Android users. (If you can do the software maintenance on your PC then you can do this.)

Note: This trick won’t work on the Nook HD or HD+, but there is a possible alternate solution. Scroll down to troubleshooting section at the end of the post for more details.

Note: This trick has been demonstrated as not working on Android 4.4, at least according to one user who left a comment over on TeleRead (where I learned of this trick). If your Android device runs 4.4 Kitkat, scroll down to the bottom of the page for an alternate set of instructions. It’s also failed to work properly on some devices, so caveat emptor.

Note: This trick won’t work for accounts on Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.de. Those streaming video platforms don’t support Flash.

This trick has been documented as working on:

  • Nexus 7
  • Hisense Sero 7 Pro
  • Nexus 10
  • Galaxy Tab 10.1
  • T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2
  • Galaxy S3

What you’re going to do is install Adobe Flash and a web browser that includes the option of changing the user agent. Chrome won’t work for this (not for me, anyway).

Step One. The first thing you need is Dolphin Browser (or another web browser that lets you change the user agent). You can find it in Google Play.

Next, download the file attached to the first post in this XDA Forms discussion and install it:


There are a number of ways to install the file. You can email the link to yourself and then open the email on your Android device and download it direct. You can copy the file over USB, or you can copy the file to and from Dropbox. It doesn’t matter how you get the file on your device, just install it. (This step won’t work on the Nook HD, so just skip it.)

Step Two. Once you have both Adobe Flash and Dolphin Browser installed, open Dolphin Browser and I’ll walk you through the steps needed to stream Amazon Instant Video.

  • Go to the Amazon Instant Video webpage. (Bookmark so it’s easy to find again.)
  • Log in to your Amazon account, and tell Dolphin to save the password.

Step Three. At this point your tablet is set up to stream video but Amazon won’t let you because they don’t support Android devices. Here’s how you get around that.

  • Press the dolphin icon in the menu bar at the top of the screen (see image one below).
  • Select the settings icon (see image two below).
  • Choose the customize option (see image three below).
  • Select the user agent option (see image four below).
  • Set the user agent to desktop, and then press the back button. (Don’t leave the settings menu)

Step Four. Now that you changed the user agent, it’s time to enable Flash support. Dolphin defaults to having Adobe Flash disabled, and you need to change this option in the settings menu.

  • Scroll down and select the Web Content option (see image six below).
  • Find the Flash option and select it (see image seven below).
  • Change it from off to either Always On or On Demand (see image eight below).

At this point you should be able to go back to the Amazon website, reload it, and start streaming videos. Or at least, I can do it. Here’s a screenshot from my Hisense Sero 7 Pro:

amazon video Any easy way to Stream and Play Purchased Amazon WMV Video on Android Tablets?

It works, yes, but not very well. My Sero 7 Pro has trouble keeping the audio and video in sync when I play SD resolution video (I won’t even try HD video). Let me tell you, this gives me greater appreciation for the work that Amazon put into the Kindle Fire HD.

But this still works immensely better than it did before. Out of sync audio is better than none at all, IMO.


Firefox – If the above instructions don’t work for you, there are reports that you can do a similar trick with the Firefox Android browser. I haven’t tried it, but I think it’s worth a shot.

Android 4.4 – If you are using an Android device which runs 4.4 KitKat, you’ll need to add a couple extra steps. The instructions above won’t quite work for you, so you should instead follow this set of instructions on XDA Forums.

Microsoft Silverlight – If you try to stream a video and get an error message which says something about MS Silverlight, zoom in on that message. Do you see how the next line mentions Flash? Click it.

Nook HD – The above instructions kinda sorta work on the Nook HD+; you just have to go through a different step to install Adobe Flash. (You could also hack the tablet and install CyanogenMod, but I am too lazy for that.)

Ignore the steps above which tell you to install Adobe Flash; they won’t work for you. Instead, here’s what you have to do:

  • Using your PC’s web browser, go to the B&N website and buy this free app: browser plugin.
  • Turn on your Nook HD, and open the app menu.
  • Find and install the browser plugin.

Okay, you just installed Adobe Flash, so now scroll up to the top of this post and follow the instructions for installing and configuring Dolphin Browser.

In case you are wondering, they worked for me:

nook hd streaming Any easy way to Stream and Play Purchased Amazon WMV Video on Android Tablets?

Editor’s Note

There is the official way which is only intended for Android smartphones, and then there is the workaround(which works on almost everything but KitKat, and doesn’t work in Germany or the UK.) For the sake of giving you multiple options, this post offers both ways to access Amazon Instant Video. I would suggest that you try both and use the one which works better for you. But is there an easier and faster way? Yeah, of course!

A Direct Way

Since It’s well known that WMV videos, movies, TV shows, etc. purchased from Amazon Instant Video store are protected by DRM and can only play on specified media players like Windows Media Player, Amazon Unbox Player, Zune Digital Media Player, etc., all you need is to remove DRM from Amazon WMV files and convert them to Android tablets compatible MP4 files.

And to reach this goal, Pavtube ChewTune is your top choice as the best Amazon Video converter that can convert all unprotected DRM protected Amazon videos, iTunes m4v and Digital Copy to DRM-free MP4 for playing on Android tablets. With it, you can effortlessly make your Amazon WMV videos playable on Android in just a few mouse clicks.  Take a look at the reviews and read the tutorial to see how it works.

Review: Everything About ‘The Lego Movie”

play blu ray on western digital my book live Move The Lego Movie(2014) Blu ray onto My Book Live for roku streaming with Mac OS X

It would have been so much easier, and so much safer, for directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to just make the kind of Lego Movie that you probably expected from the marketing. They could have crafted a simple hero’s journey, crammed with celebrity cameos and postmodern humor, and called it a day while watching the money roll in and the toy sales shoot through the roof.

And there are all of these elements in this particular Lego Movie, but there is also something more. The film goes in some wonderfully unexpected directions and takes real storytelling risks. I cannot say how everyone will respond to its narrative left turns and unexpected poignancy, but they elevate to the film far above a glorified toy commercial. The Lego Movie may in fact be brilliant. Expected release date for The Lego Movie DVD and Blu-ray discs is May-June, 2014.

A new Apple iPhone 6S could come in the spring of 2015 while the iPhone 7 is expected in the fall, according to the latest Apple rumor and gossip mill. A source of intrigue related to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in the coming year will be whether it chooses to call its next smartphone the iPhone 7 or iPhone 6s. Media is seemingly completely split on the subject, with many outlets already describing the next generation Apple handset as the iPhone 7, but an equal number are seemingly opting for the working title of the iPhone 6s.

Previous strategy

Assessing which one of these will turn out to be accurate is an interesting undertaking. If we look at Apple’s previous strategy, then in recent years they have both marked out iPhone releases as being an entirely new generation, and also as an evolution over previous devices. This doesn’t give us a huge clue, but what it does do is outline the ethos of either potential name.

The iPhone 6s would indicate that the new Apple handset was very much an evolution from the iPhone 6, while if Apple chooses to name the device iPhone 7, then the implication is that this will be a massive change from previous devices. The latter name would obviously require Apple to produce some significantly innovative features, and possibly beef the spec of the device up beyond what would otherwise be necessary.

Earlier iPhone 6s?

Another intriguing prospect is that Apple could even conceivably release two separate devices with both names attached to them. Media is already speculating that an iPhone 6s could hit the stores relatively early in 2015, to be followed by an iPhone 7 later in the year. This would be a bold and surprising strategy, and it would look to be a long shot in all honesty, but it is interesting that numerous sources are reporting this as being a possibility.

Dual Apple Watch release

In line with this suggestion, it has been reported that Apple may release the iPhone 6s simultaneously with theforthcoming smartwatch – the Apple Watch. Apple has been pretty quiet about this device, despite the fact that it has eventually confirmed its existence, but we do know that is pencilled in for an early release in 2015.

At one time it looked as if the Apple Watch could be delayed, but reports in the last 24 hours have stated that the production is now back on track, and this will enable Apple to release the Apple Watch sooner than was anticipated. It is therefore suggested that an iPhone 6s could accompany this smartwatch, and that the new smartphone may have specific functionality built into it which collaborates with the Apple Watch.

This is a possibility, but it must be stated that expecting Apple to release two completely new products in conjunction with one another would seem to be misplaced. Although the consumer electronics giant may choose to innovate with its next generation of products, there is no pressing need for Apple to take chances given that it is miles ahead of its competitors in the mobile marketplace.

iPhone 7: Evolution or revolution?

So this really poses the question of whether or not the next iteration of the iPhone series will be a mere evolution over the existing iPhone 6, or whether it will represent a genuine revolution. Both views are certainly possible. On the one hand, as mentioned previously there is no particular requirement for Apple to do anything drastic. At the moment everything it touches turns to gold, and there have been absolutely no indications from sales of either iPhone 6 device that the company needs to change tack; indeed, they have all sold like hotcakes.

On the other hand, sometimes the best opportunity to innovate is from a position of strength, and Apple is certainly in that position at the moment. With its stock trading well above $100, and the company’s valuation reaching anew record high of $700 billion recently, Apple is by far the pre-eminent manufacturer of electronic devices in the world. Indeed, Forbes rates it as the company with the highest market value on the planet, and Apple’s market cap has increased by almost 50 percent since Forbes last released its rankings.

This would put Apple in a very strong position to release the sort of device with the next generation iPhone that was strongly rumored for the current generation. This could include a large raft of massive innovations and structural changes, and we may finally get to see the Sapphire Glass finish which was so strongly linked with the iPhone 6 series.

Such a notion points to the idea that Apple will definitely name its next smartphone the iPhone 7, and create a device which is significantly different from the iPhone 6. If this is the case, then a release date around September to October 2015 is an absolute certainty. (Read iPhone 7 preview concept)

But Apple may also choose to build on strong sales of the iPhone 6 with a small upgrade and spec increase enabling them to concentrate on other products. A natural name for such a device would be the iPhone 6s.

If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, frame rate, resolution, etc that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer. Keep in mind that the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the Amazon Kindle tablets, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right. If you’re not happy with the output quality, just adjust the bitrate as you like.
