Update 16.10.2014 - Work Update!
Hello. I have been working hard on the videoplayer the last couple of weeks. There is still some work to be done but it starting to get close to release of version 3.1. As mentioned before this version has lots of new stuff. There is added a searct engine to the Playlist, several different ways to merge .VOB files, some nice ways to get information on movies, actors and highest rated TV-series and Movies (also by genre). There is also added several new filters, and option to edit/finetune some of them.
Update 11.10.2014 - Work Update!
In the latest update of the EDM2014 Video I did add a smartblur filter. On ordinary computer screens this filter could be a bit "to much", but a few days ago my wife and me watched some movies on our computer setup in the livingroom (using a big TV screen), and was amazed of how well this filter works when used on a TV. This is highly recomended for movies that's not 720p or 1080p!
I finally feel the programming itch again. I was pretty fed up before summer this year, and has struggled a bit to get back to the right feeling again. Now my head is full of ideas and it is hard to break up and go to bed at night. I really love that feeling. The next update of the video player is going to be huge. Lots of new stuff, and enhancements. More filters, more tools, and better quality output. The next version is also using the ffmpeg.exe as a tool to do some corrections to video files thats right now is unavailable from within the EDM Video. That said, there wil be options to run commands from inside the player, but the real job is done by a dos version of ffmpeg.exe. ffmpeg.exe can be quite hard to understand and use for most peoples, so I am going to try to prepare a simple way of get the job done for some of the most basic commands directly from inside the EDM2014 Video by the use of batch files. Like correcting audio/video out of sync etc.
Some of the new tools inside the player are a .vob file merger where you can choose from several different ways to merge the files, and a search engine to use with the current playlist. Besides there will be several new filters, and options to finetune each one of them.
As you may have seen on this site I have a link to my FB page. Until now I have used this page more for personal use than to promote easy-data.no. This is now going to be changed. Every new post I do make will be written in english, and at least 60% of the posts will be easy-data related. The rest is probably going to be about my dogs :-)
I you like my tools I would be happy if you would like to Follow me on FB. It may sound stupid, but I do get higher ranks worldwide by you doing this, and hence the posibillities to earn some money on this site. This makes it more easy for me to create even better softwares for you. So it is a win win situation :-)
Have a nice weekend!
Update 06.10.2014 - EDM2014 Video v.3.0.12 Update!
Updated version released today. Added a few filters. Both for quality enhancement and fun, such as a unsharp filter, vignette filter, simulate sepia tones filter, and a testfilter that enable EDM2014 Video to use MP filters. The last one is just a test, and will be replaced. In the next version of the player the user will get the option to enter filter values for each filter. I will also try to add some filter option both to the video converter and picture&audio2video tool later on. Other changes in this version released today is just invisible for the user. Some small changes in code to make everything work as smooth as possible. As usual you will find it on our download pages. Have a nice day :-)
Update 02.10.2014 - Work update!
I am working on some filters to use with the video player part. Some just for fun, and some to get better quality playback. I also work on improving translations for the player. If all goes well, there will be an update in a day or two. The Alexa rank of easy-data.no is still climbing. Today I am ranked at 112.449 in the world, and 265 in Norway. So keep up sharing this site with your friends :-).
Update 19.09.2014 - Work update!
Today I have been working on a Canon IPF 8100 Plotter. It seems to be in good shape, but I do need to replace the left printhead and the Maintenance cartridge. When this is done I will probably sell it to a norwegian customer for about 20.000,- nok. If interested please contact me by email. Below is a picture taken today.
Update 16.09.2014 - EDM2014 Pictures&Audio2Video!
An updated version of this tool is released today. A few bugs has been fixed, and some small changes to make it a little bit more easy to use. A new resolution is also added. This tool is perfect to create nice videos with audio out of your favorite pictures. The output can be played on any video player that supports .mp4 video format. If you dont have a video player that does, just download the EDM2014 Video from my download page where this updated tool also is available. If you want to share the videos you create online I suggest converting the output with EDM2014 Video Converter to get a filesize more suitable for online streaming.
Have a nice day!
Update 15.09.2014 - Work update!
Tomorrow a new update of EDM2014 Pictures&Audio to Video will be released. The current version had a few bugs that is corrected now, and a few changes has been done to make it more easy to use.
Update 08.09.2014 - Update!
Today a new updated version of EDM2014 Video is released. This update fixes some bugs with norwegian subtitles, and hence only usable for norwegians. There are a couple of other changes as well, but download is suggested only if you are in need of the subtitle fix. The burner part of the video player is for now removed. It will stay that way until I can get it to perform better than the previous one. The torrent tool does not work at my place right now, but as piratebay changes settings all the time it seems that my support for this site comes and goes. It has been down before, and will come back to life again. So this part remains untuched. Just try again after a day or two if it dont work. As usual the updated player can be downloaded from the download page.
The work on this site and my tools has started for full again after summer, but due to a new job I am going to start with I will need a couple of days off from programming this week.
Meanwhile, have a great time to all of you!
Update 06.09.2014 - Update!
Ok, now work with my tools and website has started for full again. The last couple of months I have been using most of my tools quite a lot, and have found several things that should be changed or fixed/added. The first application update is coming on moday. It is the videoplayer part that needed a few fixes with the subtitle support. Also, yet another update of the ffmpeg was needed + a couple of other things. I hope you all had a nice summer. We here in Norway sure did.
I am probably also going to get some help from another programmer in the near future, so the users of my tools may get a pleasant supprice in a couple of months. Nothing is decided yet, but we have a few great ideas. So stay tuned :-)
Update 24.07.2014 - Update!
I just have to admit that there has been quite little work going on lately. Nice weather and summertime makes me wanna go outside with my dogs instead of sitting in front of my computer. I am going to have a couple of weeks off before continuing programming. So in the meantime take care and have a nice summer. Below is a new test video created with EDM2014 Pictures & Audio 2 Video. The pictures in this video is taken on some of our walkabouts this summer.
Update 07.07.2014 - EDM2014 Video v.3.0.10 Update!
As promised! Here is the updated Video Player part. Version 3.0.10. Changes is new FFMPEG version and a simple burner tool. The burner tool is in a alpha state, and will be changed in near future. I just added it to do some tests before creating it as it will be. The future changes will add options for audio burning and image creations, as well as a better error handeling system. As usual you will find it on our download page.
Update! While I was uploading the player and new pages we had a power loss in my hometown causing lots of trouble. I hope everything is ok now, but if you get any error messages please inform me.
Update 05.07.2014 - Update!
Ok. Now things start to be finished here. The updated Video Player will be released on monday! The work with the audio player also goes well. Both the Video Player and the Audio Player will from now on have a inbuildt cd/dvd burner tool. Nothing fancy, just simple and straight forward to use.
A couple of days ago I was watching a Danish movie called Kartellet. The movie itself was quite average, but when the credits came at the end of this movie a song was played that I'd really did like. The song was named "Cat in a box" and the band was "Retox Panic". This is a Danish band with the following members: Johan Olsen, Simon Beck and Lykke Andersen. I did like this band so much that I had to post a couple of their songs here for you to listen.
This is from the movie Kartellet.
The next one is called Ozone, and is from their album "This City Burns" Released 2011. Ok, have a nice weekend, and remember to get the updated player on monday.
Update 30.06.2014 - Work Update!
Still working on..... everything actually. The FFMPEG version change has been giving me lots of work. The player is ready, but I want to finish of one more update before release. Things go a bit slower than usual here now. There is other type of work I do need to attend at times, and now is one of those times. I am still programming on a daily basis, but a little bit shorther periods of time. The site seems to continue to go well. Alexa rates it to 129.049. I guess I do something right, but it is lot of work to be done, so until next time. :-)
Update 19.06.2014 - Work Update!
I do need to work a bit on the videoplayer part again. The FFMPEG version has changed and thus I do need to update the player. There is also going to be a few more changes to the code, and probably a new little tool inside the player. You can expect an updated version in a couple of days. The Audio player part is also almost ready for release, but I dont think it will be uploaded before early next week.
Update 10.06.2014 - Work Update!
Since last update I have been working on the Audio player part again. I had one day off reasoned my main computers screen suddenly died. It is still hard to say when the audio player will be ready for release, but I think it will be finished this month. The world rank of easy-data.no is still climbing. Today I have a rank of 139 657. So it seems peoples do like my software. As you all know, all tools released at easy-data.no is 100% freeware, and the only way I make money on my tools is by adverts at this site, and the option to let peoples donate to support developement. If you use any of my products please consider a donation or a little help by telling your friends about this site and its tools.
Have a nice day!
Update 05.06.2014 - NEW TOOL!
The brand new EDM2014 Pictures&Audio2Video is finally released. This is a simple, yet powerfull tool to create video slideshows with audio. Combine your favorite pictures and music, select timeframes and transition effects ++. Supports most audio formats.
There is no need for codecs as this tool has everything inbuildt. This application is fully portable. To playback the created video files I suggest EDM2014 Video. Both tools you can find on my download pages. A help page is under construction and will be available later tonight.
Update 02.06.2014 - Work Update
Hello. Below is a demo output of the upcoming tool EDM2014 Pictures&Audio2Video. This tool will be released within a couple of days, and is perfect for creating nice presentations of your pictures. The sample below is a 58 mb file with resolution 1900x1080.
It is really simple in use. Just select the pictures you want, then the audio .mp3 file. Thats it! Have a nice day!
Update 27.05.2014 - Work Update
Hello. The audio player part is put on hold for a little while. The reason for this is that I have been asked to finish the Picture and Audio to Video tool as soon as possible. This let me make some extra money, and since all my tools are freeware it is nice to get payed for a change :-) The audio player part will only be delayed a couple of weeks, so it should not be a problem. Recently I have been asked to develop a few private non multimedia applications for a customer, and this is something I am looking into. Just to make it clear, I will continue with all the tools on this site, and all promised upcoming tools. I think I could manage to do both without problems. So, all in all its just a bit more work than before. Nothing else is changed.
Anyway, the next tool up is now set to be the standalone part of EDM2014 Pictures and Audio to Video tool. This is a rather simple tool, and should not take long to finish. Maby a couple of weeks. So, until then, have a nice time.
Update 19.05.2014 - EDM2014 Video Converter 3.0.1
Hello. Here is an bugfix update of the Video Converter tool. There was an error when users tried to drag/drop the first movie onto the program. It was looking for the needed library at the wrong place. This is now fixed. You can find it in our download page.
Update 16.05.2014 - Work Update
Hello. I have been working hard with the upcoming EDM2014 Audio Player. There is still a long way to go, but it slowly starts to take form. Below is a couple of previews so far. Click on images for full view.
This is a part of the settings in the new player. As the old EDM2013 Mediacenter it uses WASAPI for best possible quality.
Here a image from the Playlist part. There will be lots of changes here. But all the basics are up and running.
Just a code snippet from the work on the upcoming Player.
I cant really say when this will be finished, but probably an Alpha version will be available at the end of this month. If you are interested in testing this player before the final release just send me an email, and I will make sure you get the test version and a list of what I do need tested out.
OK, have a nice weekend everyone and keep an eye up for updates.
Update 08.05.2014 - EDM2014 Video v.3.0.9
As promised here is the updated version. Changes is that the playlist has a few more options, and it also supports drag/drop. There is also a bug fix with the recent played movies linking where a filter setting was missing, resulting in lower quality playback than usual. I know I promised a adjustable buffer settings for url playback in this version, but I have to wait with that part. The reason is that I do need to do a complete rewrite of that part of the code. The upside of this is that there will be a lot of new options regarding ftp and http streaming. It is already under construction, but needs a lot of testing before release. Hopefully it will be ready within a month from now.
As usual, keep telling peoples about this site, and suggest this site on FB to friends and family :-) You can find the updated player on the Download page.
Have a nice day!
Update 07.05.2014 - Work update
Tomorrow I will release an update of the EDM2014 Video Player. This is a minor update with a few changes to the playlist part and a couple of bug fixes. Users who dont use the playlist option should still download this update as a bug with the last played movie link is fixed. The bug has to do with the filter setup of the video on startup. Nothing serious, but still....
The work with the new audio player goes well, and it is starting to take form. There is still a long way to go, and lots of work to be done, but it is starting to look good.
Yesterday one of my computers crashed. This is the second time a power supply catches fire, and both times it was a Corsair power supply. This is the last time I ever gonna use this brand. It is unsafe, Both times the computers was in idle mode and that is a bit scary. If you leave your house for a couple of hours, make sure to turn of the computer before you leave.
Ok, thats all for today. Have a nice day!
Update 01.05.2014 - Work update
I have done a few updates to the EDM2014 Video regarding things I mentioned in last post. Also been working a lot with the new Audio Player. As it is now I cant say how long it will take before it is ready, but hopefully I will get it up and running within a month from now. I can already play music with it, but it is a complex software and it is hard to get it all working as I want it to.
The last couple of days I have had some trouble with the network on my work computer, and that has resulted in quite a few hours trying to fix it. So I am happy to say everything now works perfectly again. I will post some updates regarding the audio player to keep you updated on the work, and also release version 3.0.9 of the video player within a week from now. The update contains a drag/drop support for the playlist as well as adjustable buffer size when streaming video. If I get the time it will also add some audio sync methods to the player.
Have a nice day!
Update 27.04.2014 - Work update
Well, the update is done, and I should now be concentrating on the Audio player part. Still, I know I said that there would not be any more updates of the video player before next tool was out. I regret saying that. Been using the player with the new playlist, and thought it was a bit unfinished. I have also been thinking about keeping a few but important features from the EDM2013 inside the videoplayer, that is if I can get it to work without loosing any speed of the current player. Have already added drag/drop support to the playlist, but need to do some more work regarding the file formats the user adds. Its ready for the movies part, so now I am working with the audio and picture parts. Besides added option to delete a list item, or a whole playlist, and a few other things.
It is nice to see the rank of easy-data.no still is climbing. Now it has a world rank of 212,376 and rank 378 in Norway. Keep telling peoples about this site, and suggest this site on FB to friends and family :-)
Have a nice day!
Update 24.04.2014 - EDM2014 Video v.3.0.8
Ok, new update of the player again. Whats new in this version is playlist support. You can now add movies, pictures or audio files to the playlist. For audio playback I would still recomend using the EDM2013 Mediacenter reasoned Wasapi support that this player does not support. The new EDM2014 Audio Player will have this support and the option to playback audio files with EDM2014 Video is far from the quality you can expect from the upcoming audio player.
Other news in this update is that the GUI (graphical user interface) is better than ever before, and the use of smartblur filter is now selectable, and not locked as in last version. It is still set as default, but you have the option to turn it of. I thought I would add some more filtering options to this update, but it is to early to do that yet. I need some time to learn more about FFMPEG and filtering options before I add more filters. I do need to keep the player as easy to use as possible, and I think adding lots of filter options now would make the player harder to use for most peoples. So until I can deliver a kind of filter system that is easy to understand and use, this options will have to wait. If you as a user really need this option right now, just send me an email, and I will try to create a beta version that suits your spesific needs. Adding a playlist option to the player was a bit more work than I thought it should be, Had to do quite a lot of changes to the player, so there may be a bug or two. If you should find any errors please let me know so I can correct it as soon as possible.
You can find the updated version on my download page. Have a nice day!
News 21.04.2014 - Video Player
I am still working on the Video Player. Cant quite stop fine tuning settings. The Smartblur filter is changed from beeing standard to be selectable. It will still be on as default, but the user has an option to turn it of. Also done some changes to the option panel. So now it is on its own movable form. There will be a few new filters available, and they will probably be adjustable in a low level way. I have noticed that some peoples want the player to have a playlist option. This is something I did not want to add to the current player, but if peoples want it..... I will make it.
This update will be the last one on the video player before the next 2014 tool is released.
This site is starting to do good, and the alexa rank is better than ever before. Today Easy-Data.no is ranked at 240,186 in the world and rank in Norway is 452. So it seems peoples starting to see our tools and like them. So, keep telling your friends about us and I will do my best to deliver great freeware for all of you.
The EDM2014 Video version 3.08 will be released within a week from now.
Have a nice day!
Easy-Data Mediacenter is more than just a audio/video player. It is a multimedia application with lots of useful tools regarding audio/video. No other media player is even close when it comes to usefulness. Still, it is completely portable and does not need installation, No registry settings added, and no external codecs needed. Easy-Data Mediacenter is developed for use with television screens, hence the rather large program window and big buttons. But it can also be used on normal screens. The Audio part of the program is able to deliver outstanding sound due to the use of wasapi. On a normal computer you wont be able to make much difference, but when you connect a decent receiver to it then the sound quality will blow you away. There is not much settings regarding sound. EDM2013 delivers bit perfect (untouched) sound to your receiver and let it handle the processing of the sound as a receiver is able to handle this way better than any simple sound card on a computer.
EDM2013 is under constant developing and is still far from finished. I have stated that within 3 years from now it will be the absolute best media player on the marked. It is already the best regarding number of tools, and also one of the very few able to deliver bit perfect sound. But everything can always be better, and that's what i am aming for in the future. I don't want this program to be good, I want it to be the best!
