    Best audio converter: AudialHub

    Best video converter: VisualHub

    Get both of the above at: http://www.techspansion.com/

    --------------------

    *** I'm not really up to speed on what the hot IRC is these days....***

    ... but check out:

    ------------------

    You didn't ask for a screen capture app, but I'm ecstatic over Screenflick.

    No more SnapZ Pro for me! Screenflick rocks!...and the price is right.

    Get Screenflick here: http://www.araelium.com/screenflick/

    If you need more pro features for screencasting such as multicam, editing, etc...get ScreenFlow. Great app, but NOT cheap.
    Get ScreenFlow **if you need it** here: http://www.varasoftware.com/products/screenflow/

    --------------------

    tuaw.com is a great resource for info on this kind of stuff.

    Enjoy!

    You may want to check out the free program ffmpegX for video conversion.

    I agree...ffmpegX is a cool free app...but..a pain in the a$$ to work with.
    VisualHub *is* ffmpegX with a GOOD GUI on top of it. VisualHub is well worth the cost imho.

    For the ringtones, use garageband. Import any song you want and export it as a ringtone.

    How about using the built in OSX keyboard commands?

    Command-shift-3 = take pic of screen
    Command-shift-4 = take pic of selection

    There are others, search for keyboard shortcuts on apple.com

    Max is probably the best audio converter available.

    I switched from Max to AudialHub. Not even close for *me*.

    You...

    Should visit here regularly for freeware/shareware. It's one of the best sources for Mac applications.

    What was the primary reason for wanting to switch?

    For me, the GUI is far superior. Plus...

    Workflows via "When done", custom scripting, etc
    Queue
    Assembly Line
    "One-Offs"
    etc, etc....

    Take it for a test drive. The differences are pretty obvious imo.

    EDIT: maybe this will help:

    OTOH, Max does have more output formats....if you *need* them.

    It's a good app but Max is *free* and does pretty much everthing AudiaHub does (the only thing I can think of Max doesn't do is rip audio from video files).

    For $19 or whatever AudiaHub costs it should auto fill tag fields. Hell, Max should do that and still be free. :)

    I agree..Max is cool...and it's free. :)

    But...I love being able to run 12 copies of audialHub at ONE TIME!...etc

    I just took a peek at Max again....the GUI / ease of use of AudialHub alone is worth the $18. Just my two cents...

    You can convert as many audio files at the same time as you like in Max. No need to run multiple instances. Personally I convert 5 audio files at the same time as it seems to work well.

    I don't think that it is worth $19 for no extra features (excepting video audio extraction which I would not use anyway).

    That's cool. Running multiple copies of AudialHub has nothing to do with simply converting multiple files, but....I'm starting to sound like an audialHub evangelist...so nevermind :)

    I'm sticking with AudialHub.

    The only real theme changer is ShapeShifter, but that is not yet Leopard compatible

    Oh I see, Thank you.
    Sorry for bothering you guys with all my stupid questions =) I have more..

    1. Is it safe if I deleted all files inside of my Downloads\Mail Downloads folders?

    2. I changed m icons with CandyBar (Free), when the free trail over does everything goes back to default? I mean the icons?

    3. How can I add the Downloads folder into my dock?

    1. if you still have the email itself, then yes.

    2. I don't know exactly but I guess it all stays as it was up until the moment the trial was over. To change back or change to something else you have to register.

    3. Open finder and drag the downloads folder to the right side of the dashed line in your dock, close to the trash icon. The icons next to the place where you want your downloads folder will move aside and then you can let go of the mousebutton. Do not let go before the icons move aside, otherwise you delete the downloads folder from finder and have to add it again.

    you are not bothering anyone (at least not me ;)) I switched in februari and had the same questions after switching. Isn't OS X great?
