    At one point or another, many of us come across some software that is freaking awesome to us and we just want to look up to the sky and say THANK YOU.. but the software is oh soo unknown by most on the internet.

    In this thread, we can share the software that we use that we think are very uncommon but very awesome and share them with other tpuers!

    Got a couple, although one is actually a website.

    Mediamonkey: Best music organizer / player / library app I've ever come across.
    http://www.mediamonkey.com/

    Pandora: An internet radio that uses the music genome project and helps introduce you to new music.

    Dang, that sucks. I'm not sure if there are any alternatives that use the music genome project, but in comparison slacker is a pretty decent internet radio as well. Is that one available in Aussie?

    there were some work arounds for pandora because i used to use it before they put the restriction on it and was really pissed off when they did. by using a free proxy thats based in the us you could get around it. don't know if that works anymore though

    imeem.com is awesome for great music at great quality...

    also, free flv converter is one of my software contributions to this thread: http://www.download.com/Free-FLV-Converter/3000-2194_4-10832044.html?tag=lst-1&cdlPid=10832056

    it lets you download things from so many places, including:
    [​IMG]

    and it'll download and convert the song into the loads of options it gives you for converting, as well as an audio only one, which is a great trick for getting music without having to do it illegally.

    also, it does convert flv files as well

    Another one is the only and only tpucapture.. made of course by w1zzard. it's an amazing and very powerful screenshot utility, you hit print screen, select a particular part of the screen that you want to take a screenshot of (if you dont select it takes a shot of your whole screen) and then you have the option to : save as a file, copy to clipboard or upload to tpu in 5 seconds and get the link and img code for it.

    TINY, mp3 player/ripper. Also, very much free, and resource light. I've been using this program for basic mp3 playback for years. Very low CPU and memory usage. Granted, nowadays that doesn't mean so much. However, being that it's as basic as it is, it can bypass a lot of copy-protection that has been released to date. Also has an ID3 tag editor, so you can make all those MP3's look even more legit.:rolleyes:

    Just FYI, there is a slight learning curve, and the program is sometimes overly complicated (right click on the "to do" list), but it's good.

    I am also going to recommend Cain and Abel, a very nice "tool" for the computer. I need not say more, just try it. It does so many things it is scary.

    Dude I'm not sure. Just try it out and see. All I know is it does the job for me.

    Hmmm, gonna have to give Super a Try. Mediacoder is what I've been using. It's complicated, so I think Super should be easy for me to handle.
