Happy holidays!

Dear users of CoolUtils software! We wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We are closing another year. And we can say that TAC has got better.

1. We added Unicode support so that different characters were displayed correctly.

2. We added AMR to the list of supported formats (AMR is well supported by most of modern mobile telephone handsets).

3. We fixed lots of bugs. Thanks to all our contributors who pointed them out to us.

4. Besides, Total Audio Converter is now available in German, Spanish, and French.

5. TAC is Vista compatible.

To take the advantage of all these improvements download the latest version of TAC here.

It is absolutely free to registered users. It will automatically get registered if you already have a registered copy of TAC on your computer. If you lost your key just contact our support team via Contact Form and they will send you a new key free of charge.

Happy holidays and more music that you love!

Why Should You Beware Of Video Converters

Though I can’t deny that I use Total Movie Converter I became a victim of pushy advertising. The ad described so many benefits of another video converter that I decided to try it. I didn’t have to pay the money (it’s shareware) so I hit Download button.


I installed it in a normal way. Usually video converters ask what codecs to install. It did too. I selected a few ones.

I tried to convert my avi video and it worked all right. Then I decided to play it by built-in video player. Ups! I was wrong.

The video could not be played. The 1st thought was to check viruses and I did that. No viruses found. Ok, probably the new video converter has caused the problem.

So I uninstalled that piece of software. It didn’t help a bit! I had no video codecs on my windows system any longer. That nasty video converter deleted all the info from the registry about my old video codecs and I could not find them anymore.

So I had to download all the codesc again (thanks to After that Total Movie Converter could convert and play video files as before.

Conclusion: beware of video converters that replace video codesc on your machine. Good video converters just add new codecs if necessary.
