CCEditor

A utility, written in Visual Basic, to closed-caption a video file in the SRT format. You can view and change where each caption begins and ends, and also split or combine captions, while viewing the video file. I created this program during the Ron Paul 2008 campaign to closed-caption several campaign speeches. There is also a utility included to adjust the offset of times in the SRT file.

Dell Media Experience Fix

Dell Media Experience 2.0 Fix will patch your existing Dell Media Experience 2.0 installation to fix the following problems:

  1. Memory leaks while running in the background even when closed by the user.
  2. Adjusts options in Microsoft Windows Media Player that may not be changed back when the user closes Dell Media Experience.
  3. Adjusts screen saver options that may not be changed back when the user closes Dell Media Experience.
  4. Adjusts system volume levels that may not be changed back when the user closes Dell Media Experience.
  5. Media may automatically start in Dell Media Experience when it appears to be closed, even if the user has associated it to be started with another program.
As an additional feature, the patch will place the Dell Media Experience window "always on top" so it can be more effectively used without always being maximized.

This program has been tested on a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop running Windows XP Professional. It is not an official patch associated in any way with Dell or Cyberlink. There may or may not be a working official patch available at this time.

Windows Mobile 2003 YouTube Player

Note: this is probably no longer functional without some coding changes
I developed this YouTube player for Windows Mobile 2003, requiring the TCPMP Media Player and FLV plugin.

It will allow links in the mobile version of YouTube (which link to 3gp files) to play, but actually parses the html to show the higher quality flv version.

Additional features include search, and downloading of flv files for offline playback.

AuthenTec TrueSuite 5 Browser Launch Fix

Replace* Program Files\AuthenTec TrueSuite\BrowserLaunch.exe with this unzipped file to add the following features: (*Please keep a backup in case you experience problems)

  1. Launch URLs in your default browser instead of always in Microsoft Internet Explorer, as appears to be the current behaviour
  2. Launch any (not just built-in) programs as well as URLs with your fingerprint! Enter these as filename.exe in TrueSuite instead of a URL; for example calc.exe for Calculator and notepad.exe for Notepad
This program has been tested on a Lenovo Ideapad laptop running Windows 7 with AuthenTec TrueSuite 5.2 Professional. It is not an official patch associated in any way with AuthenTec. It has not been based on any AuthenTec code or reverse engineering; it simply replaces an existing program function with extended functionality.
