Rocky's Custom iPhone Ringtone Pack 2015 - Updated



These Ringtones where all made by me using the Program iRinger 4.2 for Windows; as such, I only take credit for Making these M4R format Ringtones as well as Compiling them into an Nice and Neat Ringtone Pack. Compressed as an RAR Archive.  I hope you will Enjoy them; Just Import the Extracted Pack into your iTunes. If they don't auto-import in the "Tones" Section, Right-Click the Album under "Music" and select "Get Info", and Change the Media Type to "Ringtone". Then Just sync the Ringtones with Your iPhone.

Technical Specs:
Total Pack - 20 Ringtones, 10 Minutes, 19.7 MB (Data Approximated)
Each Ringtone - 30 Seconds, M4R format

Copyrights:

Installing/Importing:
1. Extract the RAR File using WinRAR or IZArc.
2. Drag and Drop the Extracted Folder into your iTunes Window.
3. Sync your iPhone.

Note: I never tested it; but, you might be able to use the custom Tones on an iPod Touch? Even tho it's Not a Phone; many iOS Apps like: Facebook, Twitter, Skype, and LINE. Maybe able to use Custom Tones for their Alerts. But, Like I said this is Untested!
Note2: All Apple iPhones use the M4R format and are Usually 30 seconds long. (So, this Custom Ringtone Pack will be Compatible with just about every Model of iPhone.)

HDMI HD Computer Graphics

I would absolutely love an HDMI PC Monitor for My Desktop PC, It would be great for PC Games/Emulators. And for Streaming HTML5 Netflix using Google Chrome 39. I already have an decent Nvidia Graphics Card that Supports HDMI Output.

HP Support Pages:
HP Support - Connecting a TV or Monitor to your Windows 7 PC using HDMI 


The Cheapest Graphics Card on the Market that

supports HDMI HD Video Output is the, Nvidia

Geforce GT 610. which costs approx. $50 USD at BestBuy.

This is the Model I have:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/galaxy-geforce-gt-610-gc-1gb-ddr3-pci-express-2-0-graphics-card/1304486132.p?id=mp1304486132&skuId=1304486132 (Great Card; Not Available online)

But, Any "Modern" Nvidia Geforce GT Model should Have an HDMI Output Port. And yes, Your Nvidia GPU's HDMI port is also your PC's HD Audio/Sound Card.

I would personally Recommend using an Nvidia GPU; But, if you are fond of ATI Graphics Cards, Many "Modern" ATI GPUs also support HDMI output.

The Graphics Card just Needs an HDMI Output Port for HD Graphics; the HDMI Cord you can buy at any Walmart; tho Big Lots! slls an 6' HDMI for $12 USD. The HDMI will work with any HDMI Enabled HDTV or PC Monitor!

Popular American Electronics and Office Stores:
BestBuy, Walmart, Kmart, Radioshack, Staples, Office Max, Target.
You can also try: Big Lots!

Rocky's #1 Favorite Media Player: VLC Media Player

I love VLC media player; it uses the "libdvdcss DVD decryption library" to Playback your encrypted DVD Movies. On Windows and Mac OSX this Library is Installed with VLC Media Player. But on Linux you Must Install it Separately, the easiest way to Do this is by Installing "libdvdread4" from your Distro's Software Center.

Or by typing this Command in the Unix/Linux Terminal:

Command Entered into the "MATE Terminal 1.8.1"














Then Hit "Enter", You'll be Prompted for your Admin "Super User" Password, It won't show the password; just type it then hit "Enter" again.

VLC Media Player also can Play Every format of media file; and it has been said that if VLC Media Player can't Playback the Media File, Nothing can. VLC Media Player can Even Playback  DVD Video Disc Backups (.iso), as if it was an actual Media File.
