Tomb Raider Movie is out and Shadow of the Tomb Raider Game announced! How to improve your game experience and your internet connection?

Tomb Raider movie was just premiered a few days ago.  Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.

Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier.  Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.

Also the new action FPS game Shadow Of The Tomb Raider release date announced for PS4, Xbox One, PC on September 14.

What is HLS M3U8 ? Learn how to download M3U8 video stream 🎞️ and how to download YouTube live event ✨?

HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) is an HTTP-based media streaming communications protocol implemented by Apple Inc. as part of its QuickTime, Safari, OS X, and iOS software.

It resembles MPEG-DASH (MPD) in that it works by breaking the overall stream into a sequence of small HTTP-based file downloads, each download loading one short chunk of an overall potentially unbounded transport stream. As the stream is played, the client may select from a number of different alternate streams containing the same material encoded at a variety of data rates, allowing the streaming session to adapt to the available data rate. At the start of the streaming session, HLS downloads an extended M3U8 manifest playlist containing the metadata for the various sub-streams which are available.

How to download HLS – M3U8 video stream?

ChrisPC VideoTube Downloader Pro version 10 has improved detection for M3U8 Recorded video stream and also for Live events. Depending on your Internet connection, the download speed is up to 15x times faster than watching your favorite show in your browser.

While browsing and playing the desired video content in the embedded browser, Link Finder engine detects and displays all URLs to video content, indicating the video type and the URL where the video content is located for each video found. You have then the option to add the URLs to the download list and start the download.

Beside M3U8 HLS manifests, Video Link Finder also detects other popular streaming protocols like RTMP,  HDS (HTTP Dynamic Streaming – F4M), MPEG-DASH (MPD), HLS (HTTP Live Streaming – M3U8) and VOD files (Video-On-Demand files like MP4, MP3, FLV, AAC etc).

What is MPEG-DASH 🎬? How to download MPD video files 📺?

Nowadays many sites start using the MPD manifest instead of well known M3U8 and F4M.

Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), also known as MPEG-DASH,  is an adaptive bitrate streaming technique that enables high quality streaming of media content over the Internet delivered from conventional HTTP web servers.

The multimedia file is partitioned into one or more segments and delivered to a client using HTTP.  For the client, aka video player, to know each segment position, a media presentation description (MPD) file describes segment information: timing, URL, media characteristics like video resolution and bit rates.

How to download MPD manifests?

ChrisPC VideoTube Downloader Pro version 10 comes with improved detection for MPD files and has up to 15x times increased download speeds.

It’s really easy to use, launch Link Finder engine, navigate to your video and the video will be detected.

Once the MPD is detected, you have to add it to download list and start the download. It will create a MP4 video file you can watch in any media player software.

What exactly is a DNS? How to change your DNS?

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network.

Simplifying DNS mechanism one can say that DNS is an intelligent phonebook where network entities (computers, servers, printers etc) have a human readable name associated with their technical unique Internet address which is a sequence of numbers. 

In the end, computers connect to each other on the network by their technical internet addresses called IPs: IP (v4) or IP (v6).

A DNS server has the capability to quickly serve the IP of the named computer/entity that is accessed from your PC/laptop/tablet/smartphone. Therefore it is necessary for the functioning of your Internet browser when using URLs (Uniformed Resource Locators) and also when you send emails, since you use email addresses (which are in human readable form). Hence DNS is vital for browsing on the Net.

Why should I change the DNS?

By default the IP address of the DNS server used by your connection is set most of the time automatically by your computer, which queries this data directly from your Internet provider.

Sometimes the connection is slow or you just want to protect your privacy, or your children from harmful websites like adult ones, or those that encourage violence, drugs and/or indecent behavior.

How to change my computer DNS?

ChrisPC DNS Switch provides you a simple but effective graphic user interface to select the network adapter/card and change its corresponding DNS with the selected DNS from the preset lists or with a custom DNS. Features are diverse and give you the possibility to maintain your DNS database.

DNS Switch will make your life easier: You may want to protect your anonymity in which case you can select a server from the Anonymous DNS preset group list. Or you may choose to use Secure DNS servers that filter out websites that are potential threats to your PC (avoiding viruses, malware, trojans etc).

Furthermore with your children browsing the internet you might choose to switch to a Family Safe DNS server to steer clear of harmful websites like adult ones, or those that encourage violence, drugs and/or indecent behavior. In the end it might be that you just want a faster DNS than the one your internet provider has, in which case you might use one of the Regular DNS preset group or one from your Custom DNS group.

What is the Windows Experience Index ?

The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer’s hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.

Ever wonder how a PC you own or want to buy, stacks up against others? The Windows Experience Index is one way to find out.

When you’re shopping for a new PC, the Windows Experience Index can help you find the model that suits your needs. Scoring a PC you already own can help pinpoint slower components worth upgrading. A PC with a score of 2 is typically sufficient for basic tasks like text processing or web browsing. Running the Aero desktop experience on Windows 10, requires at least a 3, while graphics-intensive software frequently requires a 4 or higher.
