Enable UnblockA – Internet Speed Enhancement Tool

Today, I was searching for the Internet Speed Enhancer to increase Internet Speed. And I still remember that I have written about unblocka about a year ago. It was good enough for me at that time so I tried to use it again during the desktop cleaning in the afternoon.

Well I noticed their http://www.unblocka.com website is down. So I searched Google and downloaded it from the Internet. But then this dialog shows up saying that ‘UnBlocka has timed out download a new version from www.unblocka.com Tuning has been disabled’.

Then on the main window, the ‘Tune System’ button was disabled and I was not able to modify system! I really felt bad, sorry for the perfectly good software going down into the trash can. I don’t understand why the developer had to make the button disabled when his site is down. He shouldn’t have done that.

Any way, I decided to stick with unblocka instead of searching Internet for another similar software by using AutoHotKey. I just came up with a AutoHotKey executable that will enable the ‘Tune System’ Button. Just copy my ‘enable_unblocka.exe’ into the same folder where ‘unblocka.exe’ is. Then just run it.

See my script in action below.

Sarah flvtools2 Helper for Windows – embedding Metadata into FLV

If you want to provide streaming video service (For example, seeking any position in the video file) using Flash video, you need to embed Metadata in your flv data file.

The most well-known free tool is ‘flvtool2’ which was created by Norman Timmler (http://www.inlet-media.de/flvtool2) .

It’s pretty easy to use. You just have to type the command with -U option 'flvtool2 -U sample.flv' in the Windows command console.

However, if you have multiple FLV files to work on, this can be rather boring repetitive work. Yes, you may create a batch file and execute them all at once, but still the task requires too much manual typing.

So I decided to create a simple front GUI frontend to embed Metadata for the multiple flv data with few clicks. And, here is my SarahFlvtool2. It is a Windows GUI helper for flvtool2.
