I deleted all the files and folders for XMedia Recode (including the one in %AppData\Roaming) and upgraded from 3.1.8.7 to 3.1.8.8. When I ran the program and rechecked there was no folder in Roaming this time. Strange.

Does this really work or it still has problems even for simple transcoding? I was interested after seeing its wide varieties of options for reencoding, but the last version I used the last year was terrible; it produced an output that was a clip (not the entire video), of horrendous quality, and not even in accordance with the specs that I selected. Weird!

mukhi: I recommend one of the other programs video2video or TEncoder rather than XMedia.

6.16.1955 is out.
* Python3.3
* del "Html Tidy", it's plugin now
* del "Lorem Ipsum", it's plugin now
* del "Text converters", it's plugin now
* del "New plugin" tool, it's plugin "Make plugin" now
* del files (SynPlugins.sample.ini, Py3.2 related)
* moved menu "Plugins" in root
+ preinstalled "HtmlTidy", "ColorPicker", "MakePlugin"

BTW, I really like how this app is coming along. If you have a look at the .chm file, under the section "make an ide", the size can be reduced depending on what you delete - I removed these without any issue... lightened the size by 12+ MB...
. Syn2.wlx, pluginst.inf -- Total Commander plugin
. russian.adm -- dictionary
. german.lng, rus.lng -- language files
. .\Explorer, .\SynFTP, SynPlugins.sample.ini -- plugins
. SynWrite.de.chm, Synwrite.ru.chm -- readme files

Also, according to changelog, it's now natively portable? Maybe instruction need update? Somebody tested?

qBittorrent Portable v3.2.0 Updated

Checker on 22 May 2015
  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 May 2015

qBittorrent is a file sharing client modeled as an open alternative to µTorrent. It includes a torrent search engine, support for all extensions (DHT, Peer Exchange, crypto, Magnet/BitComet, etc.), web interface, RSS, scheduler, IP Filtering (eMule and PeerGuardian compatible), IPv6 compliance, and more. Uniquely, it includes a program lock to password-protect the interface.

The program includes torrent creation and even tracker capabilities (for serving content).

qBittorrent Portable is a portable version of the standard client. Alternatively, X-qBittorrent is also available. Clients are also available for other platforms (Mac, Linux, FreeBSD, OS/2) and in ~25 world languages.

Why am I installing a portable app... portable means it should be in an "extract and use" format, not an installer...

JohnTHaller on 2014-08-16 15:47

MaximilianKohler - It's basically a self-extractor but with additional features. That allows it to do things like remove files from the last version that aren't a part of the app and will crash the new version as well if they're left there... something that sometimes happens when you unzip a new version over an old one. It ensures your settings are preserved as unzipping some apps over old ones will wipe out your settings. It also means it's a faster/smaller download than a zip, can be digitally signed so you know that no one messed with it, and lots of other things that a simple zip can't do. http://portableapps.com/about/what_is_a_portable_app#whypaf
