Tag Archive: Open source


I don’t know how popular my last tech post really was, but I wanted to do another one anyway. This one is meant to be more comprehensive, and while the title says it’s for online adult performers, I have a secret… Anyone can use this resource list! :O I heavily favor Free and Open Source Software(FOSS), so most of the things on this list are FOSS. Knowledge is power, so don’t rely on someone else to do something for you – learn it for yourself! Because who the heck am I? I’m sure many of you know  more than I do, but I feel this list is a good place to start. If you have specific items you think I should add, or comments on any of the applications I’ve featured,  please let me know.

I love lists, so without further ado, here you go!

Free Software Lists

GNU.org  – Free (as in Freedom) Software for Windows

Free Software Foundation software directory  – Pretty extensive compilation, but many of them require Linux.

List Of Open-souce Programs(LOOP)– Ubuntu has put together a pretty extensive list of Open Source applications that can replace proprietary Windows software.

SourceForge –  an amazing directory of Open Source projects, boasting 324,000 listings and millions of downloads a day.

Free Awesome Applications

I’ve already covered my favorite video editing, image editing, and encoding applications in my previous post. Here are more of the applications I use quite a bit:

WinSCP– An excellent application for FTP, SFTP, and SCP management.

Wireshark – Very powerful tool, allows you to see all the incoming and outgoing traffic from your computer.

KompoZer – FOSS web editing tool

Pidgin – My favorite messaging/chat application

Online Search Engine Submission

Additional Resources

Free Email Certificate – Want to make your personal email more secure? Install Thunderbird and get a certificate, which can help protect your real identity.

How Secure Is My Password?  – Shows you how long it would take to crack your password on a PC, and suggestions for making your password more secure.

Free Computer Science Courses – Free online courses offered by Harvard and MIT.

W3Schools – Learn HTML/CSS/PHP/more. Free online web development resource

That should hold you over for now. Eventually I’ll put this into a separate page on this blog… *adds to “To Do” novel*

In the world of porn, malware seems to be a near constant threat. Surf around porn sites long enough, and you’re bound to get a virus. All fetish producers and camgirls should have an anti-virus program running at all times. But that’s something I’ll cover in a separate post. For now, I want to show you a quick, easy way to surf the web, download programs, images, videos, and engage in other potentially risky online behavior while minimizing risk.* It is also possible to easily and completely wipe your browsing history.

How do you do this? Virtualization.

From Wikipedia:

In computing, virtualization (or virtualisation) is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as a hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or network resources.

What this means is that you can use a program on your computer to run a completely separate Operating System which has a vastly lower risk of infecting your main computer. This separate program is called a Virtual Machine.

The program I would recommend for this is VirtualBox. [No snickering! 😉 ] This free and open source software can be downloaded here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

User documentation, FAQs, and tutorials available here- https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/End-user_documentation
Community forum available here-https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Community

How does it work?

Why tell you when I can show you? Let’s let this kid tell us-

Later posts will deal with more details, but this video will show you more basics of using a virtual machine. I’m sure you still have lots of questions, so feel free to ask them here or check out the Stripper Web Camming Forum. Those girls put me to shame! 😀

*Anyone who tells you they will make your computer “virus proof” or “100% secure” is lying.

If you’re starting out in the fetish clip or cam game, you may be a bit flustered with all the tech involved. Or you may not be! I’m no expert, but I figured I would post a few free, open source tools I’ve had some experience with. I’m a big proponent of Open Source software, so most of the software I recommend here will be FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) In future posts, I’ll cover things like secure email, spotting incompetent webmasters, setting up virtual machines, and whatever else folks request.

Ok, so you want to edit videos, edit photos, and convert videos to any format? Here’s how:

Video Editing Recommendation: Avidemux

I don’t care for the default video editors that come with Windows, and I don’t like paying ridiculous prices for software with tons of features I don’t need. So, I found a FOSS application to meet my video editing needs. Avidemux offers fetish producers the following features:

  • Available on all Operating Systems: Windows, Mac, Linux
  • Supports AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF
  • Comprehensive support wiki and forum. The wiki has some great tutorials on digital video basics. I recommend checking it out.
  • The subtitler function allows producers to create watermarks to protect their content.
  • There is a suite of video and audio filters you can use to enhance your videos.

Image Editing Recommendation: GIMP

I’ve been using GIMP for as long as I can remember. GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. I’ve never really used Photoshop, but I haven’t run into something that has made me look for another image editing program. It can take a bit of getting used to, so I’d recommend playing around with all the tools to find out what you want to use. GIMP offers the following features:

  • Available on all Operating Systems: Windows, Mac, and Linux
  • Suite of photo enhancement tools
  • Ability to create animated images
  • Comprehensive user manual and FAQ
  • Supports most output formats, including JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, PSC, as well as plugins for additional formats

Video Conversion Recommendation: WinFF

Easy to use interface of WinFF

WinFF is an amazingly powerful little tool. Back in the day, video and audio conversions had to be done using command line programs, which are… not fun. Now, there’s a GUI (Graphical User Interface) which makes the process easy. WinFF offers Fetish producers the following features:

  • Available for Windows and Linux (Sorry Apple fans! I’ll see if I can find an option for you)
  • Easily convert any video or audio file to and from tons of different formats, including: .mov, AVI, .mp4, .mpeg, .FLV, and more!
  • A support Wiki, User Instructions, and Forum
  • Ability to set frame rates, frame size, cropping, and bitrate.

So those are my first recommendations. I hope it’s helpful! Much more to come, so please stay tuned.
❤ Max
