Macromedia Shockwave Player 8.5.1

Whether you want to watch a product demo at Sony, a video clip at CNN, or a preview of an upcoming movie, you'll need these players. Macromedia's Shockwave and Flash players have become the standard for viewing rich media content on the Web.

Flash displays animations and sounds; it also lets you interact with Web site user interfaces. Because it uses vector-based graphics, the download times for these animations are noticeably short. Shockwave displays movies; you can also use it for high-performance multiuser games, interactive product simulations, and training applications.

mcdj Home v2.0.402 [6.8M] W98/2k/XP FREE http://www.mcdj.net/

{Be a DJ} mcdj is live audio management and automation software for the mobile DJ. It comes with dual audio players for continuous music play. Whoa, this thing has a lot of features in its free version! You can create karaoke files (my daughter, the singer-wanna-be, would love this), use the MCI tagging technology to add information to tracks, and take advantage of various automated features. As you work through the program, there are instructions to guide you. As one who knows little about audio-related programs, I was overwhelmed since I'm not up with the terminology. Don't let this stop those who are new to audio management from trying it out. Right now, I'm focused on getting familiar with my new audio ear, a.k.a. a cochlear implant. Then, maybe I'll work my way up to audio management.

Media Player Classic v6.4.5.6 [690k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://gabest.org/mpc.php

{Windows media player} Miss the old lightweight Windows Media Player? Get it back with Media Player Classic, which has a few bonuses added, including a built-in DVD player, AVI subtitle support, and Quicktime and RealVideo support. You can modify the filters while playing a video. Feel free to compare this with the Windows distributed version. You most likely still have it on your PC! Click Start | Run, and type "mplayer.exe" (sans quotes), and there you have it. There are two versions for downloading - one for 2k/XP (mpc2kxp6456.zip) and the other for 9x (mpc98me6456.zip). Though the file name says "98," according to one of the sources, it should also work with 95.

ModelPress Publisher v3.0 [8.8M] W2k/XP FREE http://www.modelpress.com/

{3D model publishing} Downloading this doesn't put Supermodels Gisele BŁndchen, Elsa Benitez, and Claudia Schiffer on your desktop. Instead, you'll have to settle for 3D CAD models. ModelPress Publisher reads native 3D CAD model files and compresses the model assembly, creating a secure, non-editable ISF file viewable with the free ModelPress Viewer. The creators claim the program can compress 70% to 98% of the original file size. The ModelPress Viewer views the ModelPress Publisher compressed ISF files. It can be a standalone desktop application or be embedded in another desktop application; or, it can be embedded in custom Web pages to be a Web-delivered control, designed to work with Microsoft Internet Explorer. ModelPress doesn't use an application server, so scalability is not an issue. The published file sizes are manageable, allowing formerly huge models to display quickly. Because ModelPress does not require a live session server, ISF files can be downloaded or e-mailed and viewed off-line, just as with other popular Web publishing formats. It supports the following formats: PAR, PSM, ASM, SLDPRT, SLDASM, IAM, IPT, IGES, WRL (VRML), DWG, STL, and 3DS. The Web site can demonstrate the viewer in action.

Media Tagger v1.1.0 [733k] W9x/2k/XP FREE Media Tagger enables you to you modify any number of media files in an easy way. You can synchronize ID3 tags (v1/2), rename the files based on the tag, capitalize file names, and create Winamp playlist (m3u, pls) or file listings in Excel, text, or HTML format. Additional features include support for FreeDB (to retrieve track information from the Internet) and much more. Supports MP3, WMA, VQF, OGG, and APE files. http://www.mywebattack.com/gnomeapp.php?id=105585
MIR.NET v1.0.1223.17454 [2.1M] W9x/2k/XP FREE Multiple image resizer--MIR, multiple image resizer, is different from your basic image resizer utility. Not only can it resize a batch of images, but it can also add a border, add text, rotate, and flip the images. The border and text colors can be changed and you're not limited to solid colors. The program also offers hatched and gradient options. The text will be the same on all the images. Images can come from a folder or individually selected. If a majority of the pictures you want are in the same folder, go ahead and select the folder, as you'll be able to remove the images you don't want. While you work, you can see a before and after image to see how it would look with the changes. I never had to refer to the help file while using this quick-processing program with a user-friendly interface. http://www.acumensystems.com/mir/
MoodAmp v0.91 [362k] W9x/2k/XP FREE MoodAmp is a unique music organizer that allows you to play your MP3 files based on your current mood. It can automatically scan your drive and catalog all your music files. You can then choose from various different mood settings (neutral, happy, romantic, sad, etc.) and MoodAmp will play the files that match the mood. In addition, you can also add a personal rating to each title. MoodAmp can automatically remove duplicate files (even if the filename and ID3 tags differ) using MoodAmp MP3 Fingerprint technology. The program uses either Windows Media Player or WinAmp as an external player.

MoviX v0.8 [18.3M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://movix.sourceforge.net/

{Bootable CD with movie} MoviX is a mini Linux CD distribution containing all the software to boot from a CD and start a console menu, from which you can play most audio and video files, and maybe even Internet radio and TV. In other words, if you put a video file and eMoviX on the same CD, then the CD has the movie and all the software needed to boot the PC and play the movie. This enables the movie to be played on every PC, even when there is no operating system (or a different one) installed. It supports all formats supported by mplayer, most noticeably DivX and QuickTime, and in general any AVI, MPEG, WMV, ASF, FLI, OGG/Vorbis, and a few others. Read the README file to understand the installation and important program information. After installing, add audio or video files to C:\TEMP\MOVIX\SRC, run the "mkmvxiso.bat" script in C:\TEMP\MOVIX\ or click the MoviX icon on the desktop, and burn the CD. Instructions are available for those who have Nero or Easy CD Creator.

MovieXone If you've finally gotten your hands on a video camera, you may have
run into the harsh reality that video-editing software does not come
cheap. MovieXone can edit video and audio files, add titles, and
convert between formats--for free. All current video, graphics, and
audio formats can be imported into a video production and animated,
then played back in different formats, such as streaming video.
A/B-editing tracks, one video/titling track, and two audio tracks are
available. The Live Preview in Realtime allows you to experiment, as
all changes to your clips are shown immediately.

You can export and import ID3 tags to and from comma delimited text files, verify CRC/MD5 checksums and more. The program makes a good MP3 tagging utility and playlist generator, with many additional features that are not commonly found.

MP3 File Description Database v1.0 [3.5M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://mysite.verizon.net/res0r0en/TwinkleSoft/products.html

{Capture MP3 file descriptions} Though MP3 audio files contain information about the file including title, artist, album, year, genre, and track, such information is typically gathered one file at a time. MP3 File Description Database captures all of the file descriptions in a directory and stores them in a database file. View the database entries in a spreadsheet grid or print it. If you have MP3 files in different directories, you can't get them into the same database file. Each directory gets its own database file. The program requires having the free Microsoft .NET framework installed, which you can download from Microsoft's Web site. Those using Windows XP can download the 120k minimal install, because WinXP already comes with Windows Installer v1.5. (Links to Microsoft downloads are available on the website above, and will help you determine what you need to install.)

Mp3Trim v1.90a MP3 players have finite storage capacity, so it doesn't make sense to store useless information. MP3Trim lets you remove extraneous data from your MP3s. Most MP3s carry unneeded data; MP3Trim strips out everything but the MPEG audio frames, leaving you with clean sound. It can remove both digital and analog silence as well. That's especially handy when you want to cram every second of music into your player. MP3Trim can slice the wasted space from songs up to 7 minutes long.

MP3Trim is free for personal use, but registering the software gives you extended file size support, CRC fixes, and other bonuses. Professionals must use the paid version, MP3Trim Pro, which comes with yet more features.

MP3 Utilities v1.6.23 [2.8M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.emilianomartin.com.ar/MP3%20Organizer/Intro.asp#MP3sUtilities

{Just like its name - MP3 utilities} This is a package with six applications to manage MP3s. MP3 Organizer organizes your MP3s by title, artist, album, year, comment, genre, and path. MP3 Browser browses your music files and gets your groove on with one click. MP3 List creates text, Word, or Excel files with the MP3s you have and they can be synchronized with a Pocket PC device. MP3 Mover moves MP3s from the path where downloaded files are placed to the location to where all your MP3s are stored. Upgrade only impacts those who have used an earlier version of this collection. Last, Integrity Viewer is an application to see what problems occurred when trying to find the tags' information. Sounds like a "sound" package of MP3 utilities.

Mp3Tag v2.11 [967k] W98/2k/XP FREE http://www.mywebattack.com/gnomeapp.php?id=106587

Mp3tag is a powerful and yet easy-to-use tool to edit ID3-tags and OGG comments of MP3 and Ogg Vorbis files. It can rename files based on the tag information, replace characters or words from tags and filenames, import/export tag information, create playlists, and more. The program supports online freedb database lookups for selected files, allowing you to automatically gather proper tag information for select files or CDs (if available).

MP3 Tunes v1.7.7 [927k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.mywebattack.com/gnomeapp.php?id=105875

MP3 Tunes is a dual MP3 player that includes features like Pitch, Cue, Equalizer, Database, Playlists (multiple formats supported), ID3v1 v2 tagging, jingle list, and more. It offers automatic mixing, cross-fader, password protection, pre-listening, file browser, and much more. You can even place your own logo inside the interface, file browser, and elsewhere. It's a great player for amateur DJs or MP3 enthusiasts. We liked the optional Broadcast skin a lot better than the black default option.

myHTPC alpha24 [3.1M] W98/2k/XP FREE http://myhtpc.net/

{Media manager} HTPC stands for Home Theater Personal Computer. Even if you're not a heavy-duty multimedia user, this is a good program to use to view photos, movies, and listen to music. I sort my photos in folders by family member and wondered how it was going to handle that. No problem; it'll show the folders, and you can click on the folder you want and let it run a slideshow or sort the photos by date or name. To escape a slideshow, hit Esc. While running the program, you can multi-task by using Alt-Tab. Any queued music will play even while you're looking at photos or queuing more music. It can play XMLTV files. To load cities for weather tracking, go into the configuration and enter the ZIP code or city name, then hit Search. To learn the other things it can do, read the forums and documentation or add its RSS feed to your feedreader. It may require those using Win2K or below to download GDP+.

N.Player v1.0.0.1 [1.1M] W9x/2k/XP FREE {Media player}I'm generally a Winamp man, but I may decide to change to N.Player. This application is a great little media player! The interface is very futuristic and is entirely skinnable, although I think the default skin is pretty cool-looking. You can play all the traditional audio files such as MP3, WAV, and MID. If you download the decoders then you can also play OGG formatted files. With N.Player, you can also play all the popular video formats such as AVI, MPEG, and Windows Media. Just like Winamp, you have an equalizer and a playlist feature, but N.Player also comes with a control toolbar that you add to your taskbar or move around on the screen. Did I mention that this program supports DVD audio, too? I have no complaints on sound quality (to date), so with that in mind, I can recommend this program to anyone who needs a great media player or replacement for Winamp. http://www.samo.cz/nplayer/

OneClickPlay v2.0 [44k] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.mywebattack.com/gnomeapp.php?id=105935

OneClickPlay is a very small and handy program that can automatically generate a playlist (m3u) from any directory, with optional sub-directories. The scanning behavior can be modified via command line switches. By default, the install asks you for your audio files directory, copies the oneclickplay.exe into it and installs a shortcut on your Desktop. Now, when you click the shortcut, it will automatically launch your default MP3 player and launch all the audio files (MP3 / WAV / WMA / MID / AU / OGG) in that directory. If you have multiple directories, you can repeat the procedure and create multiple shortcuts; each will automatically play all files in the directory it links to. The program does not modify your registry or mess with your existing player settings. Organize your files into playable folders.

Oriens Enhancer v1.0.1 [4.2M] W9x/2k/XP FREE http://www.versiontracker.com/moreinfo.fcgi?id=26013&db=win - 4.05 MB

{Image viewer and converter} After reading the capabilities of Oriens Enhancer and some of the reviews, I had my doubts that it was freeware and searched to make sure the information was accurate... indeed, it's free! The program contains a graphical environment for manipulating, enhancing, converting, and extracting graphics files. It can read 40 - and write 20 - file formats. Features and tools include filters, effects, artistic colorizing, editing, text layers, merging, and textures. One of my favorite features in Photoshop is its layers tool. Let's say you're working on a logo with a circle, company name, and a picture of a book. Put the circle in one layer, company name in another, and the book in another. That way if you don't like the color of the book or the size, you can manipulate the book and not impact the other items. Oriens comes with layers capability. This sounds like a whopper of a [free] program for those who don't have Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. The next release of the program is scheduled for February 10.

PhotoFiltre v5.6.1 [1.9 M] Win98/2k/XP FREE http://www.photofiltre.com/

Oftentimes many of us best express ourselves digitally by doing a bit of 'pixel pushing' (imageClick here to enlarge! editing/creation), and though there are a plethora of great graphics editing apps available, it can be useful to discover free alternatives for the frugal among us. Some may find applications that are either limited in their functionality, or interfaces that make them inaccessible to the average user. Or, worst of all, that they are free to download but *gasp* not actually 'free' to keep and use! This program really does suit the needs of both the veteran graphic artist and the novice: PhotoFiltre. Whether creating an image from scratch or importing from a source (scanner, camera, etc.), PhotoFiltre can do it via many filters and tools. Very nice interface and usage is a breeze. Best of all, it is 100% freeware!

{Build presentations} Before starting a presentation, I remind myself to review it and ensure it stands alone should the computer break down and the slides aren't available. Too often, I've seen presentations where the slides were THE presentation and the presenter did nothing but read the slides *yawn*. PowerBullet is a no-frills alternative for those who don't have that other presentation program we all know. The million dollar question - which is better? PowerPoint or PowerBullet? PowerPoint is the winner, but here you're getting a decent product at no cost.
