    Could you please add, it is a nice little video converter I came accross while helping someone out earlier:

    "The RAD Video Tools are a set of utilities for processing video, animation, and sound data. They include both of our video codecs: Bink Video, our current 24-bit true-color codec, and Smacker, our much older 256-color codec. All modern games now use Bink - Smacker is rarely used now-a-days.
    Bink Video is a "better-than-DVD" video codec. That is, it compresses better than DVD at up to three times the playback speed! Bink scales from the low-end Nintendo DS all the way up to HD video on the latest consoles and PCs.
    Smacker was designed to compress 256-color video and animation for the previous generation of games. It is now used mostly with games that need to run on very low-end hardware (the education market, for example). It is unlikely that you will need to use Smacker for your videos."

    It's called "The RAD video tools" works quite well

    Bink Downloads

    here is the user guide for it as well:

    it has shutdown timer/alarm clock/tag editor

    Aimp, good. But sound ... Not so happy with it. U can not compare it with wmp or winamp. I'm using it because it's small & more user friendly, at least in my opinion.

    DiffMerge


    DiffMerge is an application to visually compare and merge files and folders on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
    • Diff: Graphically shows the changes between two files. Includes intra-line highlighting and full support for editing.
    • Merge: Graphically shows the changes between 3 files. Allows automatic merging (when safe to do so) and full control over editing the resulting file.
    • Folder Diff: Performs a side-by-side comparison of 2 folders, showing which files are only present in one file or the other, as well as file pairs which are identical, equivalent or different.
    • Windows Explorer/Shell Integration: Right-click on any two files or folders in Windows Explorer to diff them immediately.
    • Configurable: Rulesets and options provide for customized appearance and behavior.
    • International: DiffMerge is a UNICODE-based application and can import files in a wide range of character encodings.
    • Cross-platform: Identical feature set on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
    • Portable or Installer
    PS. Use WinMerge as external tool within DiffMerge and xdocdiff WinMerge Plugin -Compare Word, Excel, PowerPoint, pdf

    Suggestion for the list. Could we might set this list into different categories for each subject matter.....Like a section for maintenance for utilities software, one for bugs to include spyware, adware, malware and viruses....and so on. I think it would make posting a link to this page with a direct subject title for that particular section for members who looking for such apps easier to find. Instead of having to scroll threw the list all willy nilly. Just a thought....

    That would be a good suggestion if that was the raison d'Ítre for the forum. But Brink already does 10,000 other things. If only interested in a category, search. You should get hits in the descriptions.. as in "editor" or "syntax highlighting editor" or "firewall" or other area of interest.

    The point was to categorize the list. So that when the list was referred to for help, it could be referred to a specific area of the list. That's all I was trying to suggest.
