Giveaway of the Day and Other Free/Charity Software Offers
#1
N.B. I have turned this into a generic heads-up thread for free software that is on offer, by which I mean available for a limited time.  (Note the emphasis on free, by which I mean gratis rather than free in the Richard-Stallman sense of the word.) EDIT: Offers that involve a minimal payment to charity (e.g., Humble Bundle) can also be posted.

Offers don't necessarily have to be from giveawayoftheday.com, though of course they might be, and the software on offer might be limited to a fixed term of free use.  Please note that I don't intend to download everything that gets posted here, and so I can't always endorse/recommend the software or field questions about it.  Please also note that, as this is FanRes, I tend to confine offers that I post about to things that are in some way related to video, audio, image-manipulation, etc.

Thanks: DigitalModiFicaTion from fanedit.org

I'm waiting for the day that  AnyDVD or DVDfab Passkey will be free giveaways! Big Grin
Thanks for the heads up.
I'm using the Leawo Player to play my newer blurays, but I wish it could play all of them with menus and stuff.

by the way, I didn't know about this site.
So, they're giving away a free software every day?
I should check it daily then.

I've updated the first with the readme that comes with the installer. Let's hope that provides y'all with a clearer idea of what to expect.

@titanic
I wouldn't expect much from the daily giveaway. I doubt it's something exciting very often.

EDIT: Okay, I installed it. It's pretty basic, but it might be useful for some.

I ran the setup, obtained an activation code, and registered it with a fake name and dummy e-mail -- no problems with my anti-virus or anything like that. *shrugs*

Thanks!

I've briefly tested it;

pros:
  • it's free!
  • it's easy
  • it does 3D conversion of the fly
cons:
  • seems to re-encode always (at least, using big files which, by the way, fit in a BD)
  • no chapters (I haven't found a way, at least)
  • only one audio and one subtitle trask (it seems)
it could be useful for someone, for something; probably it will remain unused here, I'm afraid... Wink

Thanks for the heads-up!

Yeah, it's minimal and even less than I thought.  Smile   I'm sure there must be SourceForge projects that do more and at least are configurable. (Suggestions, anyone?)

A major downside is it trying to phone-home at startup (even though ticked for "don't check for updates") until it times-out about a minute later, then the program starts. Also, the registration is for "366" days (not "forever"). I'll save them the trouble and un-load it now.  Big Grin

As did I; it was getting in the way of my anti-virus software.

DVDFab Passthru was given away free few months ago, I can post the download link to this version, but keep in mind that license doesn't work if you update DVDFab.

Thanks, I'm downloading it now with about 30 mins left on the offer before it expires. Wink

Installation doesn't work, oh well. Every time I get this:

Don't know... installation worked flawless, even without disabling antivirus.

Now it doesn't even get as far as the crash:

Absolutely worthless, it shouldn't matter seeing as I have a registration code to use.
