"I don't think there's going to be any one way to force programs into windowed mode. I think that the two modes are handled a bit differently. If a program isn't explicitly designed to run windowed, it just won't, and if it were somehow forced to, it would likely crash."


Looked through a couple of forums, found most answers to go in the lines of the quote.

Are there any problems with connecting two composite (Y,Pb,Pr) connections using the good old red/white/yellow cables?

I doubt the old RCA component cables are the right gauge the composite connectors require. But go for it.
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

I prefer Jdownloader, just get the link in the clipboard and its 50% done.
Last year, I dreamt I was pissing at a restroom, but I missed the urinal and my penis exploded.

I use free download manager for saving youtube videos, it has a built in thing for it, just enter the youtube link and it gets it and converts it to a more compatible format.

Here's a good one: http://youtubedownload.altervista.org/

Also, try Any Video Converter. Not only it's a great video converter, but it too can download youtube videos.

Found one, VDownloader, downloads video then extracts it in whatever format you want.

Can it adjust video/audio quality and frame size? I am intrigued.

[ http://youtubedownload.altervista.org ] downloads video directly as it is from youtube, so it preserves whatever frame size and quality the original youtube video had.

Not sure if Any Video Converter allows to set size and quality (for some reason it bugged for me and doesn't want to download videos anymore, so I can't check), but even if it doesn't - you can still use it to convert downloaded youtube videos to whatever size and quality you want.

Yeah, AVC is what I use right now, but they limit you to certain quality levels in the free version.

I have an flv video, but it will only open with winamp. Not even VLC. The two video converters I have currently wont touch it either.

Is annoying, how do I fix this?

btw downloading super now.

If it doesn't open in VLC either VLC is not installed properly (which I doubt) or it isn't a valid FLV file.

There's something called FLV Player that a friend of mine uses, recommended it and I've been using it ever since.

I'm trying to finally defragment my hard drive. But no matter what program I try - it can't defragment it below a certain level. I tried at least 3 apps, and 2 of them couldn't defragment it to less than 15%. I've got best results with Defraggler, which left only 7% fragmentation.

But why can't I defragment my hard drive to as low as 0-3% fragmentation?

Doesn't really matter. 0-3% fragmentation won't make any significant difference.

That's good enough. You can't get lower than around there with NTFS.

Same here, I always have at least 1-3% fragmentaion left no matter how many times I defrag.
I think there's a point beyond which the PC won't defrag the files.
