DVD Flick

#1 Post by Simon.T » Wed Mar 14, 2007 5:34 am

DVD Flick is a powerful tool capable of turning any video file format into a DVD that is playable on your standalone DVD player or home cinema set.
DVD Flick aims to be a simple but at the same time powerful DVD Authoring tool. It can take a number of video files stored on your computer and turn them into a DVD that will play back on your DVD player, Media Center or Home Cinema Set. You can add additional custom audio tracks as well as subtitles of your choice.
http://dvdflick.sourceforge.net/ (DVD Flick has moved!) >>> http://www.dvdflick.net/

seems to be that it is not write settings at all.

how to extract: use our good old feller "Universal Extractor" and then go to {sys} move whatsoever in it to {app}

note: I'm not sure what I am doing, I'm just messing around with the files and hope it'll work :oops:

by the way, I didn't actually use this program I just succeed on opening this and thats all.

Writes settings to <User Profile Folder>\Application Data\DVD Flick\dvdflick.cfg.

It is also mentioned in the change log.

Can't find any way to make it write to the EXE folder instead.

You can now download a portable version of DVD Flick:
http://www.dvdflick.net/download.php
The portable version of DVD Flick is an entirely self-contained version of DVD Flick that does not need to be installed to be used. All you need to do to run it is start the portable.bat file.
or start dvdflick.exe -portable 1
I did try it but got an error during startup :(
about component mscomct2.ocx or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered or invalid. Hope to find out what that means and try again.

EDIT:
There is a thread in DVD Flick forum about this problem:

Change the batch file to this: (Will needs Admin rights I think)

Code: Select all

@echo off

echo Registering trayicon.ocx
regsvr32 /s trayicon.ocx
echo Starting DVDFlick
start dvdflick.exe -portable 1

echo Press any key to exit when you are done with DVDFlick.
@pause

echo Unregistering trayicon.ocx
regsvr32 /u /s trayicon.ocx

Thanks portackager for your very useful modification of the batch file. :D

Before that I downloaded mscomct2.ocx from Microsoft site and placed it in the application folder. When I started your new batch file I got the same error message, but now concerning file richtx32.ocx. I downloaded that file too from http://www.ocxdump.com/download-ocx-fil ... nload.html
and now it works. :!:

It creates a folder DVD Flick in the user profile directory, but untill now it is empty.

Sorry to revive this topic, but it seems it's the only place online that discusses this subject.

Anyway, it seems DVD Flick once had a portable version, but it was since removed including any relevant documentation. Did you know about it?

I can make you portable version (launcher) if you want.

I have been looking into this, because the prior recipes aren't working even when adapted. It appears that DVD Flick isn't happy when the majority of its library files aren't registered with the system, and it does pack a lot of them ActiveX extensions (OCX)...
