Manage the contents of local and remote hard drives with PowerDesk Pro

Keeping a handle on your files and data can be a chore, especially if you’ve got data going to multiple places.  Its not as easy as it sounds. This is one of the biggest reasons why I like PowerDesk Pro. It’s a file management tool for Windows.

PowerDesk Professional is an easy, fast and smart way to organize and manage your files – digital photos, MP3s, web images, etc. on your PC. PowerDesk Pro gives you more features and functions than the standard Windows file manager with tools to search, edit, delete, copy, move, sort, zip, label, view, and convert your files and data.  In just a few clicks, you can use PowerDesk Pro to completely customize your PC.

PowerDesk 8 Professional completely replaces Windows Explorer with a wide array of File and File Management tools that let you perform many of the functions found on digital cameras or MP3 music players as well as your PC. You can use PowerDesk FTP to view and manage FTP sites as though they were ordinary folders on a local or networked drive. Once you’ve set up your favorite FTP sites, you can connect with them in a single click; and PowerDesk now supports Secure FTP.

Keeping files synchronized between shares is also easier with PowerDesk’s Sync Manager.  You can compare and synchronize the contents of any two folders. This is especially useful for work on files that are shared between two computers, it’s also useful for backing up and making archived versions of your files.

You can use its Size Manager to show you where and how the space on each of your drives is being used. PowerDesk also enhances the standard Windows Open and Save dialog boxes by adding a selection list for previously opened files and folders. It also provides a file viewer pane that supports over 150 file formats.  Its Archive Manager easily compresses and expands files from over 30 popular compression formats. You can use it to view archive contents and extract selected files with a simple drag and drop operation. Its File Finder quickly locates forgotten files. You can search by keyword, file type, size, or date range and see the results displayed in a single-line reference.

Find tons of free multimedia content with Audials One

In today’s fast paced world of content consumption, finding plentiful, LEGALLY available audio and video can be a problem.  Ripping CD’s for your digital music player has become common place and acceptable, but yanking movies from DVD’s is still somewhat of a no-no. Downloading MP3′s and the like from the digital store of your choice is ok, but can be expensive if you have a large “appetite.” This is the main reason why I like Audials One. It’s a content engine for Windows.

Audials helps you find the music you’re looking for when you need and want it.  All you really need to do is enter a preferred genre, artist, album or song title, and Audials will provide you with your desired music. You can record the audio from one of the 60,000 Internet radio stations or via direct download from a website.

Whenever you stream to music from a website or separate stream player, Audials can record that music for you and then automatically save it for you as an MP3. No matter if it is a streaming service like Simfy or a music portal such as Last.fm, Grooveshark or Spotify.  Audials makes recording that music easy.

If movies are your thing, then Audials is your way to the silver plated screen.  It magically displays a button next to videos and films in any browser or stream player that lets you record it. Just click the button with your mouse and Audials automatically saves the video. Audials records movies from online video queues, media queues or even from video streaming services; and then automatically saves the subsequent files in the desired file format for all of your playback devices.

Play and manage your music collection with MusicMatch JukeBox

Back in the day, “in the dark time…before the Empire,” I remember using a Diamond Multimedia MP3 player to listen to a new kind of music format, called MP3′s. Armed with a 8MB memory card, I was able to put about eight to ten songs on it before it filled up. I remember using this thing for about 4 or so years before I broke down and bought my first iPod. In the early days, before iTunes, MusicMatch JukeBox was the thing. It’s still around and still a decent MP3 player for your Windows PC.

MusicMatch JukeBox is a digital audio player which features a playlist library, CD ripping, and CD playback.  Its latest versions also touted online radio streaming and an online music store. The application has been around since 1992; and was originally developed by its founding company MusicMatch. Early versions only included simple jukebox features before becoming more advanced in later versions to include the ability to record mp3s from vinyl, cassette or microphone source.

MusicMatch JukeBox is compatible for Windows NT/98/2000/XP.  It is possible to install MusicMatch JukeBox 10.0 on Windows 7; but only if you install the program in XP compatibility mode.  Most users consider any version prior to when Yahoo! acquired MusicMatch JukeBox as a preferred version.  Yahoo! incorporated too many changes leading to the software becoming bloated and confusing. MusicMatch JukeBox was discontinued in 2008.

MusicMatch JukeBox is old and a bit long in the tooth.  However, on older, underpowered systems that run XP or earlier, this is probably the best music player available. Stay away from Yahoo! powered versions of the app, as they are bloated and problematic. Your best bet is to use version 7.5, as it was the best one, prior to the Yahoo! acquisition.

Design your CD/DVD labels with CyberLink LabelPrint

Soft32 has a number of great applications for creating backup copies of the DVD’s you legally own. After you’ve made your copy, you need to label it in some way so that its identifiable. This is one of the reasons why I like Cyberlink LabelPrint. It’s a fun and easy to use optical disc labeling program for Windows.

CyberLink LabelPrint can create stunning CD and DVD labels in four quick steps. All you really need to do is select your template type, disc information, text layout, background image, and print destination. LabelPrint supports layout and printing on a broad range of templates for your CD/DVD labels.

It gets even better when you use Labelflash and LightScribe. Labelflash software and LightScribe software allow you to “etch” image designs and text onto the surface of your Labelflash and LightScribe discs. LabelPrint recognizes if a burner and disc support these technologies, and provides the option to burn to that media.

If you’re a music nut, you can work with MP3 audio files to create numbered track lists quickly by simply selecting the files you have added to your disc. The information is automatically transferred between layout templates, enabling the creation of custom CD/DVD labels, jewel-case covers and inlays all at the same time.

CyberLink LabelPrint also supports a broad range of commercial templates from leading label makers for your disc covers. A built-in library of high-resolution images provides you with choices of 16 popular themes, including Travel, Happy Birthday, and now Soccer. You can also import your own images and then edit them to fit your label and disc cover designs.

Catch all of your favorite videos and convert them to almost any format with aTube Catcher

Did you ever want to download a video from YouTube, Vimeo or Metacafe? Maybe you have found numerous programs that give you a way to do this, but most of them only provide an FLV file which you’ll have to convert (with another software) to a suitable video format for your computer or mobile device. To do this with ease and completly free, let me recommend you aTube Catcher.

aTube Catcher is a simple but powerful freeware that can download videos from social web sites such as YouTube, MySpace, Metacafe, Yahoo, Vimeo, etc. and convert them into a wide range of audio and video formats. aTube Catcher can also burn in DVD your videos and it has a built-in Screen Recorder to capture whatever you may see on your screen.

The installation is simple and straightforward but at a certain moment it will ask you whether you wish to install a third party software or not. I personally have chosen not to. Once done, simply copy and paste a URL of a video from YouTube (or any other supported social media web site) into aTube Catcher, select the location where you want it to be saved, set the output format and press Download. That’s all, aTube Catcher will take care of the rest.

aTube Catcher can also burn your downloaded videos to DVD , without having to use any other program. There are just a few steps: select your DVD recorder, type a title for the disc, add the files (you can drag them to the box) and then just click ‘Burn DVD’ to start the burning process. As a plus, in case you don’t want to record the DVD right away, you can create an ISO image and burn it later.

Moreover, aTube Catcher has a screen recorder and the audio recorder. This enables you to record all the things that happen in a specific section of your screen (you can select a custom area or a specific frame) using many customization options and to record audio (from your speakers, microphone or line in).

aTube Catcher is an excellent tool for downloading online movies, converting videos (to all the major formats or those supported by mobile devices), recording the screen, creating DVDs, downloading MP3′s – all this flawlessly integrated in a simple application with an easy-to-use use interface and lots of features – I highly recommend this program.

Freemake Audio Converter gives you wings

Ellora Assets Corporation known for their free products titled Freemake Video Converter and Freemake Video Downloader, have released a new software bundle this time focused on our audio needs. Following the same idea of offering all the necessary tools into a single application, Freemake Audio Converter is more than a simple audio converter.

From the same interface you can convert audio to MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC, AAC, M4A, OGG formats or  convert audio for MP3 players such as: iPod, iPhone, iPad, PSP. If you hate for any reason using iTunes to send music to your iPod, this app can do the same thing. Besides the conversion main objective, with Freemake Audio Converter you can also extract audio from video files (DVD, H.264, AVI, MPEG, MP4, MKV, DIVX, MOV, WMV, VOB, 3GP, RM, QT, FLV), and even join several audio files into a single one.

Simple as it may look like, the interface will cause some frustration if you want to perform additional tasks besides the conversion one. That’s because it uses a classic Windows design in which the user needs to explore deeper in order to obtain other options. But why should we criticize this comprehensive audio tool, when you get all the necessary conversion features for free?

The developers already announced that this bundle will grow even bigger by introducing two new major features: RIP Audio CD’s and create Audio CD’s from MP3′s.
