Tixati is a lightweight, easy-to-use file sharing program utilizing the distributed peer-to-peer BitTorrent protocol. The program includes a clean, simple interface with the notable ability to prioritize files within a downloading torrent so you can get the first song or video downloaded and previewed quickly. Also supports customized download folders by file type, bandwidth throttling, transfer visualizations, encryption, prioritization, RSS support, IP filtering, and DHT and magnet links.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

How to extract: Download the portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch tixati_Windows32bit.exe (for 32-bit OS) or tixati_Windows64bit.exe (for 64-bit OS).

Simple x264/x265 Launcher v2.60 Updated

Checker on 13 Oct 2015
  • 74MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Oct 2015
  • Suggested by deathcubek

Simple x264/x265 Launcher is a lightweight front-end for the x264 H.264/AVC as well as the x265 H.265/HEVC encoder, based on the Qt toolkit. It uses the 64-Bit version of x264 with the 32-Bit version of Avisynth. That lets you use 32-Bit Avisynth plug-ins (e.g. DGDecodeNV) and still benefit from the speed improvements of 64-Bit x264. Optionally you can also use 64-Bit Avisynth, which is still considered experimental, if desired, as well as x264's built-in LAVF/FFMS input.

Includes full batch encoding support for running several encoding jobs in parallel.

See for more info.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
  • Avisynth input only available with Avisynth 2.5+ installed
  • YV16/YV24 color spaces require Avisynth 2.6
  • VapourSynth input only available with VapourSynth R19+ installed
  • The CPU must support at least the MMX and SSE instruction sets
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch x264_launcher.exe.
What's new?
  • Much improved validation of custom parameters.
  • Massive code clean-up.
  • Some minor fixes and improvements.
  • Updated x264 to revision 2597.
  • Updated x265 to version 1.8+2.

TCP Optimizer v4.0.2 Updated

Checker on 12 Oct 2015
  • 680KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Oct 2015
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

TCP Optimizer provides an easy way to optimize Windows' networking parameters. The developers tried to take into account all related RFCs, the Microsoft TCP/IP implementation oddities, and verify that only the necessary Registry parameters were changed.

System Requirements: WinAll
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But given the nature of the application, I think it can be accepted as portable.
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the standalone EXE file to a folder of your choice. Launch TCPOptimizer.exe.
What's new?
  • Fixed a minor bug to correctly read current "InitialRTO" and "MinRTO" advanced settings under Windows 8.1/10.

Works great, and a very cool feature is the ability to store custom sound configurations, for example Home, Office, Public, etc. Thank you once again, Nir ! !

There's no need to install/uninstall. It can be uniextracted.
@gusi4u: If I am not mistaken, LibreOffice needs Visual C++ version 2008 only, too.

AdrianK_IT on 2012-10-16 18:07

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

Always wanted to get this client to work as a P2P-client with encrypted communication, but so far I havent had any success.
