Export capture dates and times with DVdate

An English user of DVdate named Jason contacted me recently with the following problem: He undertook to catalog about 5,000 videos filmed by different members of his family in miniDV format and for this he must find in each scene the date and the time of capture. He found that only DVdate allowed him to

ImageGrab Version 7.0.0

I released version 7.0.0 of ImageGrab yesterday. The evolution comes from the fact that I use more and more files in mkv format, in particular recordings from the Freebox (TV box from my internet provider) that I transcoded with the excellent mkvToolNix or even with personal software that I have not yet published . These

Update 6.0.7 of CaptureFlux

CaptureFlux is one of my biggest hits, like ImageGrab and DVdate. It is a software for capturing videos or audio from different types of video or audio sources connected to a Windows computer. It has been particularly sought after for digitizing Mini DV cassettes thanks to its capacities for managing capture dates or for automatically

Thunderbird is no longer receiving emails

I’ve been using Thunderbird for a long time as my email manager. I appreciate the many possibilities to configure it and adapt it to my specific needs.

A very hidden bug in DVdate

I released this morning my DVdate software version 8.0.6, after fixing a bug well hidden. It happened during the DV video conversion from PAL to NTSC or vice versa. So far DVdate was producing the requested file in NTSC or Pal and it had the required qualities of such a file when it was processed

A new ImageGrab

I published yesterday, July 28, 2019, version 6 of one of my flagship software: ImageGrab. It took me a long time to develop this software which is completely redesigned and rewritten. I hope the result will meet expectations. For the user there are some novelties that I try to introduce gradually in all my applications,

Scenes in DVdate

DVdate has a number of features that use the concept of scenes, that is, a portion of the video, filmed continuously. In DV videos, scene changes are detected by a jump of the datecode, that is, the date and time of shooting contained in each frame of the video. In the absence of a datecode,

DVdate published

I published yesterday and today a page on my DVdate software. This is one of the oldest of my software, devoted to AVI files and especially to Avi DV files, which are hardly available at this time. One of the main points of interest of avi DV files was that they contained in each frame

Windows blocked on startup

I experienced a big crash of my computer under Windows 7 – 64 bits. Last Thursday he was doing well. I turned it off Thursday night to go to bed, and Friday morning could not start Windows. When I turned it on, the startup screen was displayed for a while, then the whole screen went

Custom functions for sqlite

I make my programs with delphi 7 personal version that I got free of charge as soon as it was released in 2002 and still runs very well under Windows 7 (both 7 have nothing to do!). This personal version is missing the database functions. So I acquired a Pro license to use disqlite3 –
