Re: Freeware Alternative Software List

A couple of CD ripping progs.

dBpoweramp - very useful, also includes a shell extension that lets you highlight audio files or a folder containing audio files in Explorer & convert them to your chosen format all in 1 go.

Exact Audio Copy - the 1 to use if you are having trouble ripping a CD. I had a CD that had some nasty scratches, bad enough that when I held the CD up to a light I could see light coming through the scratches from the other side. EAC managed to extract all the tracks & having listened to them you'd never know there was anything wrong with the original CD! The only downside is that the worse a CD is, the longer it will take EAC to rip it. The CD I mentioned took just under 3 hours.

EAC can't handle some of the formats dBpoweramp can, unless you set it up to use an external compressor, but I mainly use EAC for ripping problem CDs to .WAV files, then just use dMC [dBpoweramp Music Converter] to convert them to FLAC or whatever.

Re: Freeware Alternative Software List

Very good list, cheers.

This site seems to have the biggest collection, although not all free.

Not free, but ConvertXtoDVD can do that, however you have to tell it how many seconds as an interval to where you want chapters. Say, for example, every 150seconds you want a chapter...

If you want seperate movies, it can do that as well.

Re: Freeware Alternative Software List

For a limited time only..........

A FREE Copy of Camtasia Studio 3

Ideal for anyone who likes to present video tutorials. It says on the page I linked to, that it doesn't support Vista, but have heard of people saying that it DOES work on Vista, so worth a try at least.

I saw it on the Caligari forum, as with the SnagIt offer, but I didn't really see the point in linking to where I got it from.
