Miscellaneous Tools

Il y a une Version française de cette page

This page is a compilation of tools that I either use most of the time or recommend.

As maintaining this type of page up to date requires quite a lot of work, I also included every time it was possible the home page address of every tool, in case a new version would have come up.

You will only find here free tools, or for some, such as the DivX Pro Codec, tools that needs registering. There is no crack or warez here. Only legitimate software.

(though some tedious american legislator could argue the content of certain rip pack that includes a dvd ripper tool, but here in France we (still) have a law that allows copying for private use for backups means, and as long as this law hasn't been abrogated or replaced by another one as our goverment has been promising (threatening ?) for some months, I don't see why I wouldn't offer them, whatever the forementioned tedious legislator, to whom I say and wish many things, thinks.

Aside of the WinMX tools, you'll find here mainly video related tools.
