PackageManager (again)

Post by Dr. Fred »

I started working on the main program today.

And I've also create a page in the mediawiki where you can add software that you would like to see in the Tree:

mIRC is not free! Have a look at vIRC(http://www.visualirc.net/) or http://www.hydrairc.com/, both of which are open source.

The best media player I know by performance is VLC (http://videolan.org/) which is opensource. A good Winamp replacment is QCD (http://quinnware.com/), but it isl freeware. It has many things better than winamp, but some things not as good.

IZArc (http://www.izsoft.dir.bg/) is a great free compression program (it have an explorer tree style layout that other freeware programs do not have).

Yes, this (mIRC) was written before I had the idea to mark non-free software. But fell free to edit the wiki yourself. ANYONE is allowed to do so. You don't even have to register.

The best audio player by far is XMPlay (http://www.un4seen.com/xmplay.html). It doesn't work under ReactOS yet, however (at least not in my current revision). Something tells me that It's gonna be able to run soon.

Redirect to the new page with a space in it. Mediawiki doesn't understand CamelCase like UseMod did.

Hi everyone,

There is a WinAmp clone (but I agree, it's not totaly stable yet) - It's under the GPL. In my mind, somebody could (should) help the program(er) to grow (it)... You already can use Winamp skins.
http://www.delphamp.com/
I didn't try it under ROS.
But I tried DVDDecrxxxer (Don't know if I can give the real name of this program here) whitch is write in delphi too. It's OK for installing but DVDDecrxxxer is hanging ROS after it launch.

I agree with Palanx, that VLC is the best media player.

There is also 7-zip ; it is not as beautiful as IZArc, but it's under GPL

I put an entry for it in frik85s page :) I don't see any prob saying the name as its a completely legal solution for backing up dvds. Anyone who's curious can look it up @ Friks site. I think I put it under utilities.

Actually I don't know. I would have said that you had to wait for a long time a few weeks ago. But than I wrote the script engine in a suprising short time. At the moment I have some trouble with the winapi. (I doesn't have a splitter)
I will tell you if I got further.

In my country (France) there is no problem actually... But in Germany (and probably somewhere else) it's a problem.
See that :
http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/4278.cfm
German version of the EUCD implementation makes it illegal to even discuss about circumventing copy protections in public
I couldn't remember witch german site was nearly closed because the webmaster announced the new version of this program ; but I saw that.

This is sad : this program is the best FREE iso burner I ever found (For me, it's better than CDBurner XP Pro, and even NBR)

Anyway, I'll be interested by (at least) 5 small programs :
One auto shut down program - like this one : http://users.pandora.be/jbosman/applications.html
I haven't been able to find a GPL clone :cry: but the source code is include. Maybe if we ask to the programer, he could released his program in GPL ?

One wake up program :
witch is able to launch WinAmp or DelphAmp to wake me up.

One simple and powerfull DVD -> XviD conversion program : Fairuse is the (IMHO :) ) best GPL program around, but AutoGK is very good also (not GPL)
http://www.fairusewizard.com/
http://www.autogk.net/


Daemon tool
- I don't know if there is a GPL clone.
http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/index.php

The best Program to watch TV (and it's GPL!) : K!TV
http://www.kastortv.org/

It could be nice to include AC3Filter (GPL) to be able to hear the sound of AC3's DivX/XviD.

Hope it helps

Regards

I have now created a windows with a toolbar and a treeview.

But now I need some Icons:
16*16:
5x one for each action (none; install; install for source; update; unistall)
8x one for each root node (I changed the tree page so that we have fewer of them)
1x The icon for the window
32*32:
1x The main icon of the exe-file

I would be glead if someone could look for some GPL'd ones or even create those.
