What’s MCE Controller?

Not too many applications out there can provide you all the basic features needed like Screenshoter.
Screenshoter can capture your screen by pushing the button or the ‘print key’ and it will be directly saved as an image and that’s it. Moreover it’s possible so minimize Screenshoter so that it’s less annoying. Other options are available as well. Like setting the jpg-quality or showing the current cursor on the screenshot.
Screen capture utilities are a dime a dozen these days, and while some of them are crammed full of useful features, others provide only slightly more flexibility than the Windows Print Screen key. The program falls into the latter category; it’s a no-frills approach to the task of taking screen captures, and while nothing about it particularly impressed us, it works just fine for what it is.
Screenshoter’s interface is plain, just a small gray rectangle with a few buttons. Users have the opportunity to select whether they want to capture the whole screen or a particular area; the latter is a simple matter of dragging a rectangle around the desired region of the screen. Screenshoter also comes with a brief, four-step Help file, but everything about it is pretty easy to figure out.
This is an absolutely fantastic program that works just the way it should; and is also very easy to use even for a newbie.

Have you ever been frustrated by how your iPod/iPhone duplicates albums uploaded from PC, or “cuts” them down, or sorts at its own mysterious “discretion”? Now everything is fixed automatically, with a few clicks of a button, to keep your albums together just by using a simple application called taghycardia.
taghycardia will automatically fix tag errors in your MP3 library to make sure the albums don’t duplicate, separate or get lost when uploaded to iPods/iPhones or any media players that can only sort tracks by tags. The program requires virtually no mastering or configuring.
The software can also be used as a diagnostic tool that tells what is wrong with your mp3 tags, and based on that info you can later reorganize and fix your music library using specialized tag and rename tools. In addition, taghycardia can be used as an efficient auto cover art fixer: it uses both local and online cover art images to tag mp3 files that lack embedded pictures.
A few of updates and changes made to this version include the following; fixed truncated year when the field in tag is more than 4 chars long, fixed Emptied track title when the original title coincides with Artist or Album, and a few others.
taghycardia can use filenames for missing track titles in auto tag mode, though excludes artist and album from the file names. Also, this program does not get genre from Discogs, and does not allow genre modification other than through the auto-unify feature.
