    I often use this to watch some Animes. It can play almost every format. It can also capture frames so that you can make GIFs from (your downloaded) anime easier (with the help of Photoshop, I think).

    sumopaint.com has an in-browser image editing software that's nearly as good as photoshop. You can download a free version or you can go to their site and click the "open program" link in the upper right corner and open the software right into a browser window. It has low over head and doesn't eat up a lot of resources. Supports png and jpg, and layers.

    Thanks for the rec. ^^ Their site doesn't seem to be working atm, so I'll add it after I can take a look.

    Thank you for this list! A video codec pack I'd recommend is CCCP, I've used it for a long time and it's always worked for me

    er.... I don't have any cool stuff but Nitro PDF is much more nicer to use than Adobe Acrobat to open PDF files. There are functions like extract text and pictures, highlight text, etc.

    Sandboxie is a good software for security measure. It isolate any harmful stuff like malware etc... in one place and you can just delete them without worry of changing any program or important data permanently.

    DomDom Manga Downloader is neat. I use it download multiple manga files from listed manga websites in the program list.


    All software that I've mentioned can be downloaded for free.

    For codecs I once use a lot until I found Shark007's Win7Codecs. All in one codecs that let you play everything in Windows Media Player. I love it since it make WMP support .MKV and able to display text style for subtitle. Recommend!

    I remember when I had trouble watching AVI videos on Windows Media Player and none of the above mentioned codecs really worked for me. Then I found Koepi's Media Development's XVID codec, and it worked perfectly, with no effort at all on my part. So for those who still have trouble, I recommend to download this one.

    nice share

    The VLC video player is good and used it to rip my dvds. You know the windows 10 has no more a windows media player so the vlc you shared is a good alternative.

    Hello ^^ Here are some of the freeware I use.

    Photofiltre
    You will find all version of the freeware but I use the Studio X version. It's the most complete one.
    It may ask you for a key to use it once the time is up, just ask me or search on the web, it's easy to find and free.


    VSDC Free Video Editor
    For those who like making AMV ^^ It can even convert videos to a lot of different format.

    QGifer
    To make gif from video

    Hope it helps some people ^^
