VS Explorer adds a Windows Explorer-Like file and folder browsing window to Visual Studio. It provides complete access to file and folder context menus (including 3rd party extensions such as TortoiseSVN) and drag-drop functionality which allows directly adding files/folders to your projects. VS Explorer eliminates switching back and forth between Visual Studio and Windows Explorer and other external programs and allows you to focus on your work flow and preserve concentration, save time, reduce stress and work efficiently.
VS Explorer can quickly browse to the current solution folder, project folder or the selected item. It can add selected dll/exe files as references and open command prompt window on selected folder. It can filter files matching specified patterns and automatically open specified files in the current Visual Studio instance. It features Thumbnail View, Details View, Icon View and List View and various layouts which show/hide the folder tree and the file/folder list. VS Explorer fully supports Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2005.

The program allows to convert several files simultaneously, thus effectively utilizing multi-core processors. Another important feature is Windows integration. You can initiate conversion operations on media files directly from My Computer or Windows Explorer context menus. Select media files, right click the files in a Windows Explorer window, then choose "Oxelon - Convert" from the context menu and pick the appropriate media format from the submenu. The Windows Drag and Drop interface is also fully supported. You can drag one or more files from Windows Explorer to the main application window. In order to get media information or error description right-click the file, to open it in the associated external media player double-click the file. Using Direct Stream Copy it is possible to convert media files with preserved quality of audio stream or video stream (without recompression). You can adjust a lot of conversion parameters, such as video codec, amount of frames per second, width and height, video bitrate, audio codec, audio bitrate, channels, sampling rate. By changing these parameters you can minimize file size, optimize video and audio quality of each output media file.
