Directory of files Renamer

This free, small utility app will save you time by renaming each file in a directory with sequential numbering in the following format: [FILENAME][#].[EXTENSION] EX: S01E01.mp4, S03E14.avi, Corner Gas 01×01.avi, etc. This tool was built for renaming tv show files into a format readable by any entertainment management tool like Emby, or Plex (I’ve used both, I prefer Emby). However, it can be used on any file format – .mp4, .mkv, .docx, .tif, etc. Directory of files Renamer Download: v1.0 –…

How to limit XBOX / PS4 / PC game time.

  I trust my kids and we have a good relationship, but sometimes they get a little distracted when deep into a virtual world. Hey, they’re kids and what kids don’t? When this happens however, sometimes I need to exert some “parental control”. If you have ever tried to use Microsoft’s or Sony’s or Circle’s parental control / family features – you probably didn’t use it for very long because although nice in concept, it’s way too complicated, and it…

How to watch & download YouTube videos using VLC Player.

I like to download video’s off youtube that I think are important, for posterity. In order to download a youtube video it has to be converted first from a streaming format into an offline (.mp4) format. There are two ways to download youtube videos: Use a HTML based converter like y2mate.com, keepvid.com, video.download Use VLC Player # 1) Although these are easy when they work, unfortunately the browser based converters should probably be avoided as they have been repeatedly flagged…

How to archive your Amazon digital content (movies, digital books, audible)

Amazon makes spending money easy…perhaps too easy, and before you know it you’ve spent hundreds to thousands of dollars buying books, music and videos on demand. However, all of this content is locked in the Amazon system, so even though you bought it, in reality Amazon owns it and they dictate if / when you get access. Besides the obvious privacy issues, this isn’t such a bad thing per say, until either A) you lose Internet and access to all…

Firefox Browser Tip

We like the Firefox browser at Kibosh because it’s the only popular browser that – currently – 1) offers built in tracking protection (new, see below), 2) does not operate for profit (currently), and 3) does not collect, and save user data (unlike Chrome). The latest FF (v63) adds protection from web fingerprinting technologies and also web mining scripts. Mining scrips are how hackers use your computer resources (RAM/CPU/GPU) to mine for bitcoin (diabolical, but clever). In regards to #1 –…
