The field over Multi-Media software is almost flooded with useful and useless, add-ons. We have a few favorites that have a substantial added value.
First of all there is iLike, an add-on for Apple’s iTunes. iLike keeps you in contact with other like minded music lovers through a build in Web 2.0 social networking component. That’s fun and you keep each other up to date with available new releases.
Exciting is the
Another nice add-on called Last.fm. What it does is keep track of your musical preferences by through the music you play most. If at any point your imagination on what to play next runs out, or if you simply have no more interesting songs in your library it will select an appropriate radio station for you. Completely tailored to your musical taste.
All the different video formats on the net are rather confusing. To avoid a constant search for the right codec Ffd takes that job out of your hands, and take care of everything. This application supports most media players and makes sure that the right codec is at the right place at the right time.
If you are not a US citizen, or connecting to one of your favorite video site from abroad you will have a problem. License policies usually restrict the use of those sites to US based computers; practically meaning US based IP addresses. If you surf to anchorfree.com you can download the program HOT Spot shield. What it does is redirect your connection through a VPN to a US based network. And that is what you need.
When you choose a song from your iTunes Library you can get a list of “related songs” together with samples of those suggestions. This is really a nice feature, their suggestions are in my opinion to the point, witch by itself is rather unique.
