Today we have got a useful tool for those who like to watch TV shows on their computer. Episode Player is a free program that has got a very unique feature that makes it suitable for watching TV shows – it remembers the episode you had last watched, and the next time you open it, it starts the next episode. Episode player is not a video/media player however, it just remembers the video you last played and opens next videos with a media player of your choice (Windows Media Player, VLC etc).
This is something I’m sure will be useful to most of you as it has been to me. I download tons of stuff either through torrent or directly via download managers. I prefer doing that on the night time, because everyone is asleep, and low browsing speed because of the download does not really matter anyone. With this program, I can set a fixed amount of time for the bitTorrent client to run, after which it will automatically shut down. So, let’s say I share my internet with someone else and he starts using his computer from 5 o’clock in the morning, then using this application I can just schedule the bitTorrent client to run for 5 hours starting from midnight. Then, I won’t have anything to worry about. (Of course there are other ways to tackle this problem.)

But, that method worked temporarily and each time you re-started your computer, you had to press Shift + F12 to change the interface language.
