@billon

I haven`t renamed anything.

billon on 2019-03-05 23:40

@hamasaki:

On my side:
FontViewOK_p.exe - FontViewOK.ini in the program's folder
FontViewOK.exe - FontViewOK.ini in APPDATA
Something wrong on your side

hamasaki on 2019-03-07 22:06

@billon

I don`t think so. I download the zip, run FontViewOK_x64_p.exe (from a folder called FontViewOK) and the data gets stored in the AppData folder initially. No big deal, once I moved the ini file it`s been fine.

@IanFromBarrie: Thanks, I have updated the download link.

The direct download link does not seem to work, but otherwise the site is alive and well ;>}
There is also a Softpedia page.
The download page: https://streamwriter.org/en/downloads/
where they announce the availability of a "latest build" (e63b34e)

Links corrected (hopefully) -- should that happen again, there's also an "Downloads > All builds" page at https://streamwriter.org/en/downloads/builds.

I've been using PrivaZer for a few months now and I like it. Most of the time when something goes wrong it is Me, not the app.

The_PrivaZer_Team on 2022-01-02 11:12

Thank you Klard for your nice words.

PrivaZer cleans around 250,000 PCs every month.

Tiny file size and very-functional download manager.

Great to use for servers that limit download speeds to a low KB/s.

My only tiny nitpick is probably to change the default download parts from 1 to 2 or maybe 4. Other than that, thumbs up!

Oh man, you are my hero.
Today I spent an hour looking for some small and portable downloader. Found noting and here you are. =)

Per the last comment (or rather comments), it's true VLC is infamous for never including the 64 bit in the regular download page.
I've therefore edited the entry to link to an official archive (more techy page) that always contains both the latest 64 and 32 bit versions (in both 7Z and regular ZIP).

PAFuser on 2022-03-07 20:48

Also available from PortableApps.com (32 bit). (64 bit can replace PortableApps 32 bit files.)

MoisheP on 2023-10-13 14:18

It might be easier for some to download the Windows installer, e.g., vlc-3.0.19-win64.exe directly from videolan.org and unpack using 7-Zip to the VLC folder.

Version 3.6.7 is now available.

I take the opportunity to comment further that I have now tried the program on several occasions, always with good results without reading instructions. Though its interface does look a little intimidating at first, it's not all that difficult.
In particular,
Tools > Fix common errors… : converted a non-working document to a perfect srt.
Synchronization > Adjust all times (show earlier/later)… : was most useful.
