  • RTMPDumpHelper now temporary disables the DLL protection mechanism of Firefox in order to load RTMPDumpHelper.dll into Firefox.
    Also, be aware that Firefox is now installed as 64-bit Web browser by default, so you have to use the 64-bit version of RTMPDumpHelper if you have 64-bit system.

For me RTMPDumpHelper is the most useful of all Nir Sofer tools. It is rarely updated but it is still working fine.

I use youtube-dl (command line) almost exclusively nowadays.

TVideoDownloader is a frontend GUI for youtube-dl:

@freakazoid
Thank you for your input. In fact I know TVideoDownloader. I have used another youtube-dl front-end- Moo0 YouTube Downloader:
https://is.gd/2UqwMT
It is not portable (perhaps it can be made portable?) and I update youtube-dl.exe manually. But I have not tested neither TVideoDownloader nor Moo0 YouTube Downloader with RTMP streams- I didn't know that youtube-dl supported RTMP protocol.
Note- I used url shortener because the actual link of Moo0 YouTube Downloader:

is not shown properly by this site.

Using Audacity Portable and folder is there after close.

zorro on 2018-07-24 08:42

Current version is somehow stealth after configuring the temporary folder to point to something inside the program folder (Audacity doesn't accept the system temp folder) - the created "Audacity/SessionStore" folder in LocalAppData can then be deleted.
No entries in the registry any more (except Audio.. PropertyStore, but this applies to all programs with sound output and is not persistent)

zorro on 2018-07-24 14:20

...sorry, business as usual - somehow inconsistent, but after the third start, Audacity created %LocalAppData%\Audacity again. And in addition there's no way to change the language. Strange behaviour.

Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch Portable v2.2-2 Rev 2

billon on 19 Feb 2018
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Nov 2014
  • Suggested by Emka

Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch is a program for modifying audio, although its most noted feature is stretching. The program includes the capability for (8x, 50x etc.) sound stretching, as well "spectral smoothing" the sounds to escape the audio artifacts common in other audio editors when dramatically slowing audio. Includes many post-processing effects including filters, pitch/frequency shifters and more. The program imports WAV, OGG and MP3 files and can export to WAV or OGG.

The program can be used as an audio toy or in creating ambient or "screw"-style music.

There is a new version of mp3DirectCut- 2.21, but I do not like the new icon and will stick to mp3DirectCut 2.20. I do not get it why all developers embrace the ugly and unbearable M$ flat design.

Specular on 2016-02-20 12:47

In v2.22 there's a 'Configuration Storage' setting under Prefs>Folders. By default it's unchecked. Does it need to be enabled for portable use?

j7n on 2017-04-06 22:59

The new "flat" design with similar monochrome icons is a step back in usability. Normal appearance, apart from grouping of toolbar buttons, can be restored under Configuration -> Layout.

The program is a good tool for trimming old MP3 encodes without incurring further quality loss. Glitches are avoided if the MP3 is upconverted to 320 kbit beforehand with MP3Packer.

I wish it also supported common simple video soundtrack formats.

@ __philippe: Thanks ... and updated ;)

__philippe on 2016-07-29 13:17

Annoyingly, SysInternals' powers-that-be no longer deem worth their while to provide a changelog of their recent releases.

Current cases in point: ProcessMonitor v3.30, AutoRuns v13.62,

Sloppy version control management, if you ask me...:-(

On a positive point, they resumed adjusting correctly the internal PE tags version numbering of their updated utilities, which proved rather baffling for a while

(see smaragdus' related post:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=82073#p82073

Regrettably, some of SysInternals' recently updated tools now fail to run under WinXP......:-(
(e.g. Procmon v3.30 fails under winXP, despite the "Process Monitor runs on Windows XP SP2"
plain statement found in the Procmon.chm HTML help file)

Cases in point:
ProcessMonitor fails as of v3.30 (blue screen crash, last XP working version v3.20)
SigCheck fails as of v2.40 (last XP working version v2.30)

MIKLO on 2016-08-29 18:10

@ __philippe do you know is there gonna be any effort made to correct this? I'm kinda surprised cuz I have always thought of SysInternals as being a first rate top notch entity, but they are not showing that in this case.Even if the changelogs are only interesting or necessary to a few people in my opinion that reason enough to continue with accurate data.
