am a french man, living near Paris, a hobbyist in
digital video as well as programming in Borland's
delphi. I am in no way a professional in video nor
in computing. It's only a hobby for me, even if
I spend 3 to 6 hours every evening, and most of
my week-ends with it. But only my spare time.
begin a new program when I have needs for my own
video activities, that I cannot fullfil satisfactory
for instance with free programs. That is to say,
I program first of all for my own needs.
a program is working for me, it's my pleasure to
publish it on the Internet for all video hobbyists
over the world, who for their personal or family
video productions may have similar needs.
really appreciate exchanging ideas and experiences
with people in so many countries, and their feed-back
makes me improve my software in proportions that
I could hardly imagine.
It's very stimulating.
How to support
If you like my contributions, there
are three ways to give me a concrete support:
you could make
some publicity on the internet about my products
and my website, specially in forums and blogs
where it would be interesting to inform other
users about the benefits of my programs.
you may visit
the Google ads on my pages
you may donate
some money with the paypal button in the column
on the right of this page
How to contact
I appreciate receiving e-mails,
and read them all with attention. I take into account
all feed-back that I receive. But I must warn you that
I have not much time to answer to all of them. Presently
I have more than a thousand e-mails in my message box
waiting an answer.
I hope this sad reality will not
refrain you from writing to notify a bug, a feature
that you want me to implement or modify, or any other
suggestion... That's what helps me improve my programs.
2006, the visitors of my website came mainly from
Compared to 2006, the list of
most visiting countries shows that my website is
becoming more and more international:
The french rightist government
has promoted a bill about DRM and other prohibitions
in numerical data. This law called DADVSI punishes with
3 years jail and 300000 ? fine all users or program
writers that copy or create tools for copying multimedia
data. I think it is one of the most repressive laws
in the world about copyright and numerical data.
I protest against this
law, and I support the promotion of a free web, without
artificial shortage in culture and communication, and
with interoperability of all systems. A global license
was proposed as an alternative and would have permitted
a much better standard of freedom and interoperability,
without harm for the remuneration of artists.
