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.

I’ve looked around on the web for a study on the action, effects or side-effects of this herbal supplement, Liv52 from Himalaya Drug Company. But, most of the articles I managed to find seem to  present Liv52 as a sort of panacea, which , I personally don’t find very comforting, when reading about a cure/therapy/medicine. If you’d like to read them, just go to http://www.liv52.com and choose from the long list.

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.
