MP3 Converter

MP3 Converter is a streamlined program that allows you to convert files between several different formats and at varying levels of quality. This makes it possible for you to play your files on different types of devices with different programs.

Pros

Clean interface: This app presents a streamlined interface, with clear options for adding files, selecting output format and quality, and then beginning the conversion process. Files to be converted are listed in the middle of the window, so you can see what you’ve completed already, at a glance.

Cons

No conversion status: Once you click convert, you have no way of knowing the status of the conversion. While most of these are completed quickly, it would be nice if there was some way to see where in the process each file was.

Not many options: Compared to other file conversion programs, this one offers relatively few options for file output types. The only ones available are WAV, OGG, M4A, WMA, and AAC.

Failed conversions: Some of the conversions we attempted failed without any explanation from the app. The files just weren’t converted and didn’t save.

Bottom Line

MP3 Converter can be useful if you need to convert files between MP3 format and one of the others supported in the app. It’s also free, so there’s not much harm in trying it out for a bit to see if it will work for you. But there are other programs out there that offer nicer features and more conversion options. So it may be worth looking into some others, as well, especially if you do a lot of conversions and want to be able to monitor their progress.

Publisher’s Description

Advanced Word to Pdf Converter Free

2009-04-20 06:10:03 | By Tom_1942

| Version: Advanced Word to Pdf Converter Free 5.0

The free version provides a partial, altered sample so you can see what the purchased product would do.

Free version puts an advertisement at top of a partially converted document. You have to link the document to the application in its directory. The uninstall is incomplete, leaving a directory with files in it.

The free version is nothing more than a sales gimmick for the paid version. It slowly does an incomplete conversion inserting an advertisement at the top of the document. The resulting file didn’t look all that great either. I have no idea as to the quality of the paid version as I found the free version’s operation onerous. The uninstall was incomplete. I had a message about running a DLL that I found disquieting. MS’s control panel uninstall gave a message of an error on uninstall. After uninstall it left a directory with files in it that I manually removed. I have yet to run a registry cleaner but shall do that and run a virus checker soon. Not recommended.

What a Waste of time.

Nero 2016 Platinum – Free download and software reviews – CNET #free #condoms

Nero 2016 Platinum

Nero 2015 Platinum is the latest iteration of one of the best-known media and disc-burning suites for Windows. Music, video, data, and slideshows: Nero burns them all, Blu-ray included. It also plays discs and media files, converts video and audio, creates slideshows and photo albums, and streams media to your TV and other devices on your home media network.

Pros

Welcome: Nero 2015 Platinum’s full-screen Welcome page provides quick access to main functions like Manage and Play or Rip and Burn, but it also centralizes everything you need, including Tutorials, Tools & Settings, and Your Product, which opens the Nero ControlCenter for managing serial numbers, updates, and other important product information.

Burning: Disc burning is one of Nero’s core competencies. Nero Video, Nero Express, Nero Burning ROM, and several other bundled tools work together to create and burn CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs, as well as store data and backups on rewritable discs (plus 5GB of included free online storage). No “drink coasters,” either: We burned a multi-chapter DVD on our very first attempt.

Play: Nero Blu-ray Player plays Blu-ray movies and other discs on your PC or on your TV. Nero MediaHome not only streams movies and music as part of your home media network but also includes nifty extras like Timelines and Face Recognition.

Cons

Big: Nero 2015 Platinum does so much that it can be a bit overwhelming at first. Don’t get us wrong: Nero is as easy to use (or easier) than other media solutions of its size and capability, which take time to master. For some jobs, basic freeware might be enough.

Bottom Line

Integrated, all-in-one media solutions tend to be large and complex, but Nero 2015 Platinum proved surprisingly easy to use without giving up on the features and extras that set it apart from lesser tools.

Editors’ note: This is a review of the full version of Nero 2015 Platinum. The trial version is limited to 15 days with some features disabled.

Publisher’s Description

From Nero: Nero Platinum is a suite to burn, rip, convert and manage all your videos and music to discs, TVs, smartphones and tablets. And with our new apps, you can master your multimedia, burn over the air and improve your Nero skills, too. It includes the full-featured Hollywood-grade 4K video editing suite Nero Video as well as all its premium additions, such as high quality video enhancement tools (such as Tilt-Shift Effects, Retro Film Effects and many more), new font styles and motion text effects, and allows you to burn your files to Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs with world’s best burning engine. Superior disc and file playback is built-in as well as streaming of virtually any file to your iOS devices, Android devices and all compatible TVs. The new support for “Places” in Nero MediaHome allows you to tag and browse your videos and photos based on where they were taken. Convert all your videos and video discs play on iPhone 6, Galaxy and the latest smartphones and tablets. Play all your content on your SmartTV via the integrated media server.

What’s new in this version:

  • Ripping of CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays and converting files to any format made easy*
  • Brand-new apps to stream to mobile devices, burn files over Wi-Fi and learn everything about Nero Platinum
  • Best video editing including high quality HD and Ultra HD (4K) support
  • Superior DVD-Video and Blu-ray Disc authoring plus Hollywood style menus
  • High quality video enhancement tools (Tilt-Shift Effects, Retro Film Effects, Video Stabilizer, and many more) and new font. See all new features 1 of 1

    VSDC Free Video Editor

    Publisher’s Description

    When it comes to video editing nobody wants to spend hours mastering nuances of video cutting techniques. All we usually need is to place several pieces together, add some fade-ins and outs, include subtitles and do this with as little efforts as possible. At the same time nobody wants to compromise with the final quality of the video. Indeed, simple not necessarily should mean primitive. VSDC Free Video Editor is a simple and easy to use video editor featuring a lot of functions even a pro editor wouldn’t be ashamed of.

    With a full support for dozens of video codecs and formats including but not limiting to AVI, MP4, MKV, MPG, WMV, 3GP, FLV for video; MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC, PCM, OGG, AAC, M4A, AMR for audio; and BMP, JPG, PNG, PSD, ICO, TIFF for images, VSDC Free Video Editor provides one of the easiest ways to combine multiple source chunks in different formats into a resulting high-quality video. A bunch of filters can turn even a commonplace video sequence into a classy pro-quality movie, while thousands of video and audio effects conveniently grouped into four categories help you making your video to look and sound more dynamic. Not only does VSDC Free Video Editor offer powerful video editing capabilities, it is also surprisingly easy to use. Forget video conversion back and forth between different formats – the program fluently reads all of them; and the output video is as easy to write to a DVD disk as to transfer it to any connected media device, like iPod, iPad, Sony PlayStation, Xbox or a smartphone.

    What’s new in this version:

    Version 5.1.2:

    • Program’s interface complete restyling – switching to a modern flat design
    • Optimized advanced multi-color Chroma Key
    • Enhanced text editing
    • Adding the H265/HEVC codec as an import format
    • H264 and HEVC hardware acceleration
    • Interface localization into Spanish

    A product easy enough for newbies

    2016-09-21 00:13:47 | By Jenny.vitara

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    Hello. I’ve been using VSDC to learn how to edit videos, and it works so nicely I upgraded to the Pro version, so thank you for putting out a product easy enough for newbies to learn but powerful enough for experienced people to take advantage of.
    After using this thing for as many hours as I have, it’s pretty amazing that there’s only one thing I’d want to change about it. 😉
    Thanks again. Have a good one.

    A feature suggestion: I’d really like it if the program remembered the timeline-zoom level when switching back and forth between the effects tab and the main tab–or when switching between any tabs, really. A lot of times I’ll need to-the-second accuracy when moving or placing the cursor, but if I put an effect in and switch back, it’s zoomed itself all the way back out.
    Not a huge deal, but when editing longer videos with lots of cuts and effects, I spend a lot of time moving sliders instead of editing stuff.

    A good editing suite

    A great tool for a practicing musician

    2016-09-20 06:04:03 | By Kali_lighter

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    A while ago, I discovered what a great asset it can be, for a practicing musician to record themselves. to kind of keep practice documented. and be able to look closely at what I actually look and sound like, as a way to mark progress.
    I tried a lot of different video editors, and I have to say VSDC is the most powerful and user friendly one, I’ve come acrossed!

    Language can be changed only after closing and repeat launching of the program. But it’s not a significant disadvantage.

    This is a truly user-friendly program with a great deal of functions. Thanks for having made it and keeping it free!

    I found the Editor exceeds standard array of functions.

    September 15, 2016 | By RedJackA

    2016-09-15 23:53:04 | By RedJackA

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    I found that your VSDC Free Video Editor exceeds standard array of functions required for my modest editing goals, but faced with a long video conversion: a 7:30 minutes video (a part of which was accelerated at 800%) was exported during 45 minutes.
    But having a look at the exported video, I noted that the playback of accelerated fragment was smooth (the result that I never had in Movie Maker). Such a good quality of the exported video made me think that a long conversion was processed for a good reason. Therefore I have three questions:
    1. Is it true that the accelerated video is converted longer to make a high quality (smooth) playback?

    2. I have been going to pay for the Pro version, when found out that it’s an annual subscription. But is it really worth it? As far as I understand, Pro version will use 100% of CPU resources opposed to the free version. What’s the principle of hardware acceleration work? Is it connected with a video card performance?
    3. I read that money can be returned within 30 days from the date of purchase. Does it mean it is the “trial period” during which you can try out the program, and if it does not live up to expectations, “cancel the purchase” and return the money?

    Excellent free alternative to overpriced Adobe Premiere

    2016-09-08 04:25:17 | By YangMelisduko

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    So glad to work with a program of such a high quality. Believe this editor may become a serious Adobe After Effects rival over time. For example, only this program enables to make text movement like in Star Wars. Moreover, the program is truly free: no trial periods, watermarks on the output file – everything runs perfect.

    As for cons. Despite impressive array of functions, the program doesn’t have enough guides, so one needs to search for tutorials on YouTube

    VSDC catching Pikachu

    2016-09-07 23:48:58 | By Ric_monkey

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    Hello there! My name’s Ric, and I’m currently promoting my Youtube channel with PokemonGo gameplay series. PokemonGo is not a traditional desktop game, so one needs imagination and tricky video editor to make a decent gameplay.
    Frankly, it’s for the first time I used free editor for my work and have no regrets about it. I widely used chromakey and transparency options, not speaking about video and audio effects, and I shout admit VSDC is with comparing with Vegas, Movavi and even Pinnacle. Nice work!

    I don’t like preview playback. Sometimes the video’s flickering, though the issue disappears after export. Anyway, a note for the developers.

    A surprisingly good piece of software for editing routine of any complexity

    Easy editing tools

    Not actually free

    I did a whole bunch of work editing a video, but then when I went to export it, it said I had used a pro feature, so I had to upgrade actually get my video. Since I had no idea which “pro” feature I had used, there was no way to fix it, so the whole thing was a waste of time.

    Am impressed by your free softwares which I make use

    2016-08-22 01:31:35 | By Castlertor

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    1. The Video editor user interface has been changed a great deal over the previous version, but a few incremental tweaks here and there do make it easier to work with.
    2. Has finally is added a plugin that I’ve been waiting – the Warp Stabilizer, for instance, uses image-synthesis algorithms to correct for camera shake. It’s well used for individual life moments

    free professional-grade product

    Although, I recommended the free version to my followers.

    I ve chosen this editor for my first film contest

    2016-08-17 02:18:02 | By Nick_rogers

    | Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 5.1.2.567

    First off, let me say that I love the software! It is quite intuitive and very powerful yet flexible. I have really enjoyed using it and am constantly learning new aspects of it or developing different ways of doing things. I’ve done a short stop-motion/animated film that I want to enter in a competition. I had rather rough format restrictions – to have a Full HD quality with certain size limits. VSDC Free Video Editor (thanks to support team!) helped me to export a perfect quality movie.

    I think plugin support will be an evident step ahead.

    The software which I recommend to my colleagues.

    BitLord

    | Version: BitLord 2.2

    It handles torrents.

    It will install toolbars and search engines without your permission and very little warning. In it newest update in included a malicious search engine/toolbar that nearly took over one my browsers.

    Do not get this. I created a account on this site just to warn people. Get any other torrentor but this one.

    Reply by whtboi420 on August 22, 2013

    Doesnt phase me in the least that this would load you up with unwanted toolbars etc. And to top it off a hijacker. When I saw they were pushing it as the easiet way to download red flags popped up. Im using tixati and never had an issue yet .

    non consented extra downloads

    2013-06-23 08:57:52 | By jataadroid

    | Version: BitLord 2.2

    dont know yet was too busy removing the extra software it forced on my system.

    installs avg search bar and youtube dimmer without upfront consent.

    im sure this software works well but when you do things like this, it leaves a bad taste in users mouths. Uninstalling.

    Updated on Jun 23, 2013

    after the initial bad taste of the unauth installs, its atleast refreshing to see that it works well. Please dont over shadow your software by being unethically monetarily driven with poor adverts and sponsors.

    Reply by djdusharm on June 24, 2013

    No, really it does ask you, you need to read more before you accept to all those terms and agreements. It lets you decline all of those downloads. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth when people bag on programs just because they are trying to get money for advertising on their FREE program. Many great programs do this type of thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if your computer is full of those programs from not being careful while downloading

    works exactly as advertized

    CCleaner

    CCleaner is a free Registry and junk-clearing utility for keeping your system clean and optimized.

    Pros

    Basic UI: CCleaner’s four main features — Cleaner, Registry, Tools, and Options — are clearly marked on a vertical tab menu. Initiating a scan and clean is straightforward.

    Powerful: CCleaner includes most of the essentials for PC maintenance. It provides tools for clearing your temporary files, cleaning the Registry, and removing unused cookies from your browser. CCleaner also supports 64-bit systems, as well as updated support for popular applications.

    Freeware: Upselling and bundling are minimal; CCleaner only offers the option to install Google Chrome, which users can easily opt out of. Compared to many other free programs, CCleaner is the least ad-heavy.

    Cons

    Registry cleaning: If used incorrectly, CCleaner is capable of doing more harm than good. Always exercise caution when cleaning your Registry — create a backup before starting cleanup.

    Bottom Line

    CCleaner is effective at removing junk files and unnecessary temporary Internet files. While using it won’t dramatically improve your system performance, it’s nevertheless a fine addition to your utility collection.

    Publisher’s Description

    CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner.

    What’s new in this version:

    • Improved Windows 10 Anniversary Edition support
    • Improved Microsoft Edge Cookie and History cleaning
    • Updated Firefox extension management
    • Improved 64-bit build architecture on Windows 10
    • Updated ZoneAlarm 2016 cleaning
    • Minor bug fixes
    • Minor GUI improvements

    | Version: CCleaner 5.20.5668

    Does not leave debris upon uninstall.

    This version needs some cleaning in its own house. Does not detect – clean Edge or Firefox. (!) Downloaded from CNET and from the site, unistalled and installed 3 times – yes I know it must be my own fault

    First time in many years that I see such a bad version.

    Updated on Jul 22, 2016

    I decided to spend some time with this and found that the upgrade did not install over the last version and so when unistalled the old version was left over. Had to go to the Piriform folder and ran the older version unistaller from there. Reinstalled and now detects Edge and Firefox but I lost my confidence in it so will skip it for some time and use native Windows utillities intead,

    Great tool, save me more space.

    Cross DJ Free

    2014-04-04 13:16:03 | By Djulzz

    | Version: Cross DJ Free 3.0.1

    – Basics of mixing process highly simplified.
    – Great features for advanced use.
    – Can be used even if you are drunk.
    – Can save your party.
    – I think I will buy it, it is so cheap.

    I’d like to write something here but i really don’t know what.
    Maybe an absence of tutorials.

    Even this version can add lot of fun to your parties.
    Each time I organize one at home I use it and I ask my friends to install it when I go to party with them.

    2014-03-24 03:58:13 | By KurtyOlu

    | Version: Cross DJ Free 3.0.1

    As I said in the post in the Mac version, I downloaded it and it works perfectly.
    I have a PC too, I installed it as well and it works perfectly
    Also, I really want this software to be more recognized because it is so worth it

    Come on, here’s what I got.
    – Video mixing
    – 4 freaking players
    – Neat interface
    – Cool customizable waveforms

    But anyway. My point is: I never thought I’d have fun with it, since it’s not as recognized as the others (and I was doing Ok with Virtual Dj), but I eventually realized that it it is 10.000 times better than he others! Boy, stuff is so simple to use and intuitive and cool that you shoudl try it. it’s not a big uncomprehensible machine like the others software.

    TO end with, as I said, I use it for private parties with my Numark Mixtrack Pro and it works just fine, mapping is seamless, very cool, no crash n stuff.

    the most underated Dj software ever.

    Gotta give it a try!
    At first I was like, man its just another one, but after 5 minutes playing with it, I totally love the way it feels and look and rock the boat!

    2014-03-20 03:14:19 | By DreamBeat82

    | Version: Cross DJ Free 3.0.1

    The only one DJ Software who have a good manage of the video for VJing and the video and audio together if you want to be a DJ/VJ on the same time.

    Better than Serato video because Cross DJ have.
    – Ajustable preview window.
    – Full HD (1080p) record and external Screen.
    – Many video and audio effects.
    – All this features for free !

    I appreciate the fast iTunes loading too, because I make all my playlist on it with my smartphone and computer.

    – The graphical user interface is a bit old (Could be great to have a new one)
    – No manual. but you have a good client support with a forum on the website.

    I recently bought the paid upgrade for Cross to unlock Rekordbox, video sampler and the HID for control my CDJ but this Free version is very good to try many of this features.

    If you want something advanced or enhance your DJ/Vj skills, I recommend to Buy Cross.
    It’s cheaper than Serato and Traktor and with more features !

    I m a Djayyyyyyy !

    2014-03-19 09:39:04 | By lilinfr

    | Version: Cross DJ Free 3.0.1

    -Super simple
    -Love to mix video clips
    -can play itunes tracks

    -too many features for my skills, but im learning 🙂

    PRO DJ Software really affordable and fully featured.

    2014-03-19 07:23:00 | By Sammosby

    | Version: Cross DJ Free 3.0.1

    Pros of the paid version. Free is cool but price made me buy the full version. Really affordable for what is inside. Very rare to find this kind of product for this scale of price.
    + VIDEO + VIDEO + VIDEO
    + DJ features are cool and effective.
    + Answers PRO DJ concerns.
    + Apps to continue mixing on smartphone

    – No real user manual
    – BUT support is precious and effective on forum and facebook page or twitter.

    Great soft and great product. Really cheap for this quality. Better use Mixvibes Cross than other soft which are too expensive. Upgrade for free if already using Cross — fidelity rewarded really cool for users.
    ADVICE. GO GO GO

    Why only 9th in DJ softwares ?

    A real Pro DJ soft available in Free Version.

    2014-01-14 06:42:47 | By TheNuggetDiggers

    | Version: Cross DJ Free 2.5

    – Numerous features for free version
    – Samplers + effects
    – Works perfectly
    – Perfect for bedroom DJ Big Room DJ
    – Better than free versions of other softs

    – So many things to do that i don’t know where to start

    – I want to go for the real version. Free version is so good that the paying one must be even better.
    — Great job by Mixvibes.

    Ad-Aware Free Antivirus +

    Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ combines Bitdefender’s advanced scanning technology with antispyware to provide you with top-of-the-line antivirus protection without system slowdowns.

    Pros

    Employs a trusted engine: Ad-Aware version 11 uses Bitdefender’s highly rated antivirus engine alongside its trusted antispyware platform. If you already have a trusted antivirus app installed, Ad-Aware can be added as a second layer of security.

    Light on memory: Ad-Aware goes easy on your system resources — you can perform an active virus scan while surfing the Web.

    Dependable detection: Ad-Aware’s false-positive results are low, according to independent testers AV-Comparatives and AV-Test.

    Remains out of sight: The antivirus suite stays mostly out of your way during daily use, with minor notifications here and there to alert you of suspicious activity. Game mode temporarily turns of all notifications so you can play without interruption.

    Cons

    Lower real-world performance: AV-Comparatives’ preliminary tests found that Lavasoft’s protection rate has recently slipped in ranking. Due to its nonproprietary detection engine, Ad-Aware is always a little behind on the latest exploits.

    Requires additional activation: Ad-Aware will work for the first 30 days but then requires activation via email. It’s an extra step and the minor cost for using a free product.

    Bottom Line

    With a slim interface built on top of a powerful scanner, Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ provides robust protection with minimal system impact. The extra activation step is annoying, but for such great free protection, it is a small price to pay. While the suite can leave your system vulnerable to first-day exploits, they are rare, and Ad-Aware is more than capable to protect you in daily usage.
