A completely free, secure and open source video conferencing application for your desktop and mobile


While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt business around the world, it has also spurred the growth of video conferencing platforms as people are turning to meeting each other online.

Now, there are many video conferencing platforms available in the market but their free versions mostly come with limitations. Google Meet limits the meeting length up to 1 hour, Microsoft Teams offers 2GB of storage per user with some other restrictions, Zoom has a 40-minutes cap and Houseparty imposes a limit of eight persons in a meeting.

If you're looking for a completely free service that supports unlimited video calling with no restrictions on the number of users or conference participants, try Jitsi Meet, an open source application with state-of-the-art conferencing capabilities that are secure and easy to use.

No sign up for an account is needed to set up or join a meeting. Head to its browser-based Jitsi Meet, name a desired meeting room under "Start a new meeting", then enter a username to join the meeting, or share its link to invite others.

To use Jitsi Meet on your mobile, download its Android or iOS app respectively from Google’s Play Store or Apple’s App Store.

Being an open source project, Jitsi Meet allows you to download the source code and set it up on your own server if you’re familiar with Unix installations. Based on Jitsi's open source solution too, the maker of Brave web browser is launching Brave Together, a free video conferencing service built right into its browser. Read More

JamBase has launched a video archive with over 100,000 live concerts by various artists in a range of genres. Bluegrass, country, folk, R & B are a few types you’ll find.

Transfer Playlists Between Music Platforms for Free


This free browser app lets users transfer their playlists between music streaming platforms.

TuneMyMusic lets you transfer playlists between almost any music service using your browser. It supports most major music platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, TIDAL, YouTube, Amazon Music, Deezer, Google Play Music, Napster, and Last.fm.

The service works in your browser and is easy to use:
• Point your browser to the TuneMyMusic website.
• Select the source music service (depending on the source, you may be asked for login credentials).
• TuneMyMusic will fetch your playlist where you can select songs, artists, playlists, or albums to merge.
• Choose the music platform destination (depending on the source, you may be asked for login credentials). Google Play Music restricts usage to 10 playlists a day.

Music transfer services aren’t perfect, so check lists for missed tracks or the right version of a song.

There's no registration to use the service, though the paid plan requires creating an account.
The only difference between the free version and the paid plan is the paid version will sync multiple playlists on different music platforms. Both plans allow unlimited conversions and convert to files (TXT or CSV).
Note: Some Firefox add-ons will cause the page not to work.

If you use more than one music platform and want to have the same playlists across platforms, give TuneMyMusic a try. Read More

Gizmo's Freeware's Independence is Under Serious Threat: Here's How You Can Help


Gizmo's Freeware is one of the few remaining websites that it doesn't charge for reviews, doesn't offer pay-for-app listing services or accept reviews written by developers and advertisers. That’s the reason our reviews have always been honest and independent and that's the way we want to keep it.

However, we are currently under a lot of financial pressure and it's mostly coming from an unexpected source: our users. That’s because over 50% of our users now use ad blockers and as a result, our general Google ad revenue has fallen sharply. Don’t get me wrong: we support the right of our users to employ ad-blockers. Hey, we have even recommended to you the best ad-blocking products!

Then there is the effect of Coronavirus. Like many other websites our traffic has fallen so between ad-blockers and Coronavirus we've had a double whammy on our revenue.

But our fall in ad revenue is now limiting our ability to update our freeware reviews and expand our coverage. That affects everybody. We are looking at long term financial solutions but in the short term we need to survive.

We could easily raise more money by being more blatantly commercial, but we don't want to go there. Instead, we are running a fund-raiser campaign asking our loyal and understanding users to contribute a small amount as a donation to the site.

So please help Gizmo's remain independent and fearless by donating just a few dollars now. In our 18 years of operation I’ve only ever asked our users three times for support and hopefully will not need to do so again for a long time. So please guys and gals, stand up and be counted at this time of need.

Best PC Games of the Decade


It's been a decade since I've been a member at Gizmo's Freeware and here I have listed down the best games that were released over this time span.

Gaming has evolved a lot since the beginning of this millenium. I still remember playing pixelated video games of the 90's, admiring them and couldn't wait to get home from school, relax on the sofa and start playing them with a controller in hand. At the dawn of the 2000's, in-game graphics looked prettier than ever before, online gaming started becoming a thing and purchasing physical game discs cost a fortune from our meagre pocket money. From 2010, games have widely gone digital for purchases, touchscreens on smartphone devices have opened a new era for the booming gaming platform, and virtual reality has already been here for gaming and growing in popularity.

Over the past 10 years, we've seen countless amazing gems across innovative indie games through big budget AAA blockbusters. From what we experienced through these years, we've found that many developers stop at nothing short of fantastic and try to exceed the expectations of the people with each new title. They offer us variety of choices from First Person Shooters to Real Time Strategies and Adventure Games, making sure that no gamers are left in the void when it comes to their favorite genres.

The real question that pops up right now is that with so many great games made available for PC during the last decade, which ones really stand out from the rest of the pack? A lifetime would not be enough to sort through them and to save you that trouble we have made a list of our recommended games on PC over the last 10 years and ranked them in order. The rankings on this list are subjective but each game here is excellent and selected from the most diverse gaming platform, i.e. PC, and released throughout the last decade. Read More

How to use a single click to open anything in Windows:
Go to File Explorer > View > Options > General > Single click to open an item (point to select) > Apply > OK.

To enable checkboxes in Windows: Go to File Explorer > View > Options > View tab > Use check boxes to select items > Apply > OK. Scroll down a bit to find the check box option and check the box next to it.

If your colleagues aren’t persuaded that conversion is important, send them this article, using this mailto link) or, if you’re an extrovert, via social media. Conversion is a team activity. If your bosses, co-workers, and employees don’t share your vision and enthusiasm, you’ll struggle to get results. Before you can convert your visitors, you must convert your co-workers.

“The Power Law of CRO”—and why it means CRO is the most important activity for your business

In this article, you’ll discover the three benefits of CRO that can drive your company into an economic “virtuous circle” of growth. Benefit 1: The obvious one—CRO gets you more customers, free The obvious reason to improve your conversion rate is that you want more customers without having to spend a penny more on advertising. Your revenue is equal to… your number of visitors multiplied by… your conversion rate (the percentage of your visitors that turn into customers) multiplied by… the lifetime customer spend (the amount that each of them spends with you): Benefit 1: Doubling your conversion rate doubles your revenue.
