VideoCacheView v2.81 Updated

  • Released on 3 Mar 2015
  • Suggested by JohnW

VideoCacheView automatically scans the entire cache of Opera, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla-based Web browsers (Including Firefox) and finds all cached media files. It allows you to easily copy the cached audio and video files into another folder for playing/watching them in the future. For video, if you have a player that is configured to play FLV files, it also allows you to play the video directly from your browser's cache.

juvera: there's a version with install/uninstall support but the other one should be portable... should we retest?

Ascend4nt on 2014-04-15 10:25

Its worth noting that this also finds and allows extraction of Audio files (since version 1.40). Very nice

To be fair, Slimjet includes builtin PDF viewer and pepper flash player plugin. That's 20MB+. If you don't need that, you can delete those. And you can remove all the language files that you don't need under the locales folder and language folder. And if you don't ever play any games based on the NaCl technology, feel free to remove nacl_irt_x86_32.nexe and nacl_irt_x86_64.nexe .

Their SlimBoat is a lot slimmer. But Slimjet is the better choice to go for me in terms of speed and site compatibility.

I don't know about the Opera 12. That seems a very old version. But I checked opera 24 and its unpacked size is 150MB+.

I'm beginning to loose interest in this browser. The update cycle is starting to rival that of Q-Dir...almost every other day there is an update.
