Open Source Media Convertor

Yaffmi is a free, open-source (GPLv3) multimedia conversion application for Windows written in C# / .NET. It is easy to use, supports hundreds of formats, and leverages the popular FFmpeg media encoding / decoding library.

Since I like to delve into C# projects I will definitely be giving this a try and see how it works from the inside. I thought I should post this, although I don’t have much use for a convertor at the moment I know that most are very expensive and it’s nice to have an open source one handy just in case.

Great list of Tutorials and Courses from Vanderbilt University

I’ve taken many online courses in diverse topics that I’m interested in, not just computer science but all kinds. Recently I have been slowly but surely working my way through Systems Programming in Android by professor Douglas C. Schmidt at Vanderbilt University. So far this course (which is free by the way) is really great. If you really want to understand the fundamentals about the Android operating system and understand exactly what is going on this is the course to take. Android is based off of Linux and shares many of the same concepts, this course digs into those differences and explains the similarities and what makes Android tick. I definitely recommend it if you want to get the edge on Android development.

Once you get through that course, or if you get bored of it you can check out all the other courses Professor Schmidt offers on his website which you can get to through this link.
