TrueCrypt 7.2

7.2 can't be used to encrypt anything. Its only function is to decrypt existing volumes. Everyone is still using 7.1a

>BleachBit

Placebo. If you're going with a full-volume encryption, there's really no need to clear your cache in the first place. Who's going to see it?

>mpv

MPC-HC

>AdBlock Edge

Ad-blocking extensions eat up memory and are needless bloat. You can simply edit your HOSTS file to block ads on a system-wide basis, and it's not going to require any additional resources: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts2.htm

>qBittorrent / Deluge

Both are based on libtorrent, which is buggy. Google "libtorrent stalled" for an idea of some of the more critical things wrong with libtorrent.

Tixati or Transmission-Qt are good alternatives. Both use custom BT protocols.

>>51609901
>VeraCrypt

Uh, no. VeraCrypt is an unauthorized fork of TC that hasn't been code audited, so there's a good possibility it could simply be an NSA backdoor.

TC 7.1a has been audited and no major vulnerabilities have been discovered, so it's safe to continue using indefinitely.
>>
>>51612669
>Halite

Halite and qBittorrent are both based on libtorrent, so they're both prone to stalled torrents.

I'd argue it's prettier.

Closed source is always a risk, especially when you give it permissions to delete files but this company is pretty based, i think recuva and speccy are from the same guys, plenty of respectable software imo

Finally, someone who knows what they're doing.
I'd switch out 7-Zip for Easy 7-Zip, though. Why make a three mile long right-click context menu when you can have a GUI?

I'm also not sure FFmpeg belongs in this type of guide. It's great, but it's command-line. If FFmpeg came standard with Windows, 99.99% of people would never use it because double-clicking it doesn't do anything. It doesn't conform to the Windows philosophy that the user should be presented with something that's somewhat self-explanatory.
A generic setup guide should get babby to the beginning. Most will be fine at that level, and anyone who outgrows what the beginner tool can do can direct themselves from there.
FFmpeg isn't a beginner stage, and you can go right from Handbrake to learning to pipe Avisynth scripts into your encoder, so command-line FFmpeg sits in a weird position.

I think Handbrake or a FFmpeg front-end are more guild-worthy. (Are there any good front-ends? I've only used Xmedia Recode and, while it worked, it was a bit buggy)

FFmpeg is easy, theres a hundred sites with instructions on how to convert any kind of format

Could you make this for Android/iOS too?
I mean there are tons of app for every single use, but there's always 1 or 2 that stick out as the best.
>>
>>51614703
So suggest a FFmpeg front-end.
I've only ever used Xmedia Recode, but its options are limited and it has bugs here and there. It got the job done.
There are plenty of front-ends. Does anybody even know what the best is?
