Working with Nokia N95 Videos

Posted in N95, Photography on January 26, 2010 by Atul

I find most of the established video editors (VirtualDub, Super) either too intimidating or unable to handle the mp4 videos from my Nokia N95 (without technical jugglery) . Was looking for an easy  solution, easisest as possible in fact, and ultimately settled for a combination of two freeware programs: MP4Cam2Avi and Avidemux, and I find them quite satisfactory. MP4Cam2Avi converts the mp4 files to Avi and, using Avidemux, I can perform simple operations like cutting and saving video clips.

Anyways, I decided to look around the web for the individual ingredients of the tablet, as advertised on a 100 tablet bottle of Liv52 manufactured by the Himalaya Drug Company, Makali, Bangalore (Batch no.B059208 B): Capparis spinosa, Cichorium intybus, Solanum nigrum, Terminalia arjuna, Cassia occidentalis, Achillea millefolium, and Tamarix gallica.
