Multi-functional Media Downloader and Editor - aTube Catcher

What is aTube Catcher?

aTube Catcher is a simple freeware application for personal, private and non-commercial purposes, allowing to download videos from multiple popular video sharing sites like YouTube, XTube, Pornotube, Dailymotion, MySpace, Google, Yahoo, etc. and export to many formats (MPG, AVI, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, PSP, MOV, FLV) with the quality that you choose. For your convenience, the utility also provides templates to encode your videos to standard formats as DVD, VCD, IPOD, PSP, etc.

Software supports "Authentication" option in YouTube, so you can download private videos (of course, if you have proper authorization), or videos with adult content.

How it works?

aTube Catcher (aTC ) is a small web browser, it enters to a Website, interprets the content and when it finds one video instead of download and playback (like all the other web browsers), it just downloads in the directory that you have previously selected after that, it converts your video to the format requested.

Do you have FLV files on your disk (downloaded with other tools for example) or videos in other formats waiting to be converted to 3GP, 3G2, MPEG1, 2, 3, 4, DVD, VCD, IPOD, WMV, XVID, AVI, etc? You do not need to convert one by one anymore. Just copy all the paths to a simple text file and open the file with aTC, it will process and recode all that files automatically.

To protect copyright holders, aTube Catcher doesn't support secure/ciphered protocols (including RTMPE) and it doesn't has support to decode/decrypt protected content by any DRM security measure.

The utility comes with a Flash video (FLV) player and a new tool called Smart Media Hunter that allows you to download your favorite comic and fun videos from a hundred sites, including TV commercials, and all completely safe and free.

So, not only you can export the videos from YouTube, XTube, Pornotube, Dailymotion, MySpace, Stage6, Google, etc, also you can convert/recode any video or FLV (downloaded from other site or with other software) to the mentioned formats. YouTube Catcher also can download and encode any FLV if you provide him with the direct link.

The freeware program comes with many features, you can find just in commercial applications. You can set the encoding options such as size, framerate, aspect, video codec, fileformat, audio codec, audio sampling, quality, motion search, etc. Now includes Batch file processing, just paste the links in a plain text file, and YouTube Catcher will download all the videos to the specified folder, you will not have to wait one by one anymore.

Among other features, aTube Catcher also can burn in DVD/VCD your videos without use any other third party software. It has a built-in Screen Recorder to capture what you see on your screen, even video chat sessions from Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, DVD movies, Webinars, Online Meetings, etc, or just create video/audio presentations.

Turn you digital photos in funny images with Fotosketcher

Turn your photos into beautiful paintings, sketches or drawings in seconds

Thanks to FotoSketcher you can create stunning images to make original gifts for your friends or relatives. Create birthday cards, season's greetings stationery or simply print your work of art and hang it on the wall. Different styles are available: pencil sketch, pen and ink drawing, various painting renderings. You can also improve your original photo with simple tools (enhance contrast, sharpen, simplify image, increase luminosity, color saturation etc...). But what makes it different from many other professional tools is pure simplicity of use.

CNET Review

FotoSketcher provides users with a simple tool for re-imagining their photos as handmade drawings. While the program provides easy controls and a lot of flexibility, nobody will mistake the results for actual art.

This program is very simple, especially if users have prior experience with drawing and photo-touching software like Paintbrush or Photoshop. The controls mimic those programs with their simplicity and logical progressions. Users having any difficulties will find an informative Help file that walks people through the process. Converting our pictures was easy. Once we selected a photo to work with from our own hard drive, we were shown a screen featuring a pull-down menu to select pencil drawing style, pen and ink, or painting, along with several faders for adjusting color and intensity. A small preview box updated each time a selection was made saved time and effort. The results will look familiar to anyone who has used photographic filters on similar software. While the shots look different and drawn, they will never pass for real pencil sketches. However, for users seeking that computerized look, they are still fun and the changes quickly applied. Special features that helped improve this program included the option to batch process multiple photos at once and the ability to apply text to a photo with point-and-click simplicity.

While the results don't look like a professional artist redid your photos, this freeware program is simple and fun for anyone not expecting huge artistic changes.

FotoSketcher is completely free and does not contain any adware, spyware or virus. It runs on any version of Microsoft Windows (no Mac version available). Portable and setup versions are available.

How to Jailbreak your iPhone with LimeRa1n?

What is Jailbreaking?
Jailbreaking is a process that allows iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users to run any code on their devices, as opposed to only that code authorized by Apple. This process permits users to install homebrew applications on their devices by unlocking the operating system and allowing the user root access. Once jailbroken, iPhone users can download many extensions and themes previously unavailable through the App Store via unofficial installers such as Cydia. A jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch is still able to use the App Store and iTunes.

Is that legal to Jailbreak your device?

All the law obedient citizens would be surprised, but the answer is YES. You have a freedom to unlock the Apple device, and Apple has a freedom to prevent you from doing that, but not through legal and enforcement approaches, but purely through technological solutions only.

Jailbreaking an iPod or iPhone in the United States is legal "fair use", and does not violate copyright laws defined by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. In response to a request by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the U.S. Copyright Office explicitly recognized an exemption to the DMCA to permit jailbreaking in order to allow iPhone owners to use their phones with applications that are not available from Apple's store, and to unlock their iPhones for use with unapproved carriers. Apple had previously filed comments opposing this exemption and indicated that they did consider jailbreaking to be a violation of copyright (and by implication prosecutable under the DMCA). Apple's request to define jailbreaking as a violation of copyright was denied as part of the 2009 DMCA rulemaking. In their ruling, the Library of Congress affirmed on July, 26, 2010 that jailbreaking is legal under U.S. copyright law.

Tim Wu, a professor at Columbia Law School, argued that jailbreaking is "legal, ethical, and just plain fun." Wu cited an explicit exemption issued by the Library of Congress in 2006 for personal unlocking, which notes that locks "are used by wireless carriers to limit the ability of subscribers to switch to other carriers, a business decision that has nothing whatsoever to do with the interests protected by copyright" and thus do not implicate the DMCA.  Wu did not claim that this exemption applies to those who help others unlock a device or "traffic" in software to do so. As of July 26, 2010, The U.S. Copyright Office has approved exemptions to the DMCA that allow iDevice users to Jailbreak their devices legally. These exemptions also allow phone users to unlock their phone in order to switch carriers. It is still possible Apple may employ technical countermeasures to prevent jailbreaking or prevent jailbroken phones from functioning, but they will not be able to sue users who jailbreak.
