Can't you disable it saving temporary files in the options?

opsimathic on 2017-08-12 08:51

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

I wonder why they never made a 64 bit version and if it doesn't matter why do they call this a 32 bit version? I mean after all its been around a very long time. I'm jus sayin :)

@MIKLO
They have made 64 bit versions - they're just hard to find!
Pick your flavor from the drop-down menu: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
Or get it direct: https://get.videolan.org/vlc/2.2.8/win32/vlc-2.2.8-win32.7z.
I have a program that relies on VLC's 64 bit codecs, so I had to search for it.

lastaltoid on 2017-12-07 05:06

BTW, these (zip and 7zip) have been described elsewhere as 'portable', they do not require installation (unpack and run), they apparently still some files (including an INI) in user AppData folder. I have not verified that.

The graphics editor I use most often just to tweak and modify photos and images, especially for desktop backgrounds. Outside of that I've enhanced more than a few presentations by making color edits that PowerPoint's inexact image tools couldn't do. I love this program.

@__philippe: It's so far really, really great. I'm tempted to bump up the current version to the beta just because it's such a leap in available features and (so far) quite stable.
