XnView is a feature-rich, customizable media viewer that supports more than 400 formats. Includes batch image converter/renamer as well as basic transformations (rotate, filters, effects, colors, multi-page, etc.). Various viewing settings include tabbed interface, fullscreen, slideshow, web page, contact sheet, image compare, and filmstrip layout. Includes scanner support, screen capture, Photoshop's 8bf plugins, image search, histogram, metadata viewer, automatic crop (deletes background), watermark, flash export, and more. It can also store thumbnails to a temp folder rather than each image folder accessed, which is handy for portable use.

MSVCR71.DLL MSVCP71.DLL are no longer dependencies
only `msvcp110_win.dll` but it's lazy loaded

Hi,
One more time, it's impossible to download Portable version. We are pulsed from page to page and finally landed on the original one.

Same experience as @Guido76 at 11:45AM EST. Looking back over the comments, it seems that Piriform has got web platform problems. Hope that sort of sloppiness doesn't carry over into the actual product.

An alternative link to the Softpedia download has been added to the entry.

XP users will not be able to use the latest stable release.
XP users need to use the 3dyd_1.10.2_beta1.exe
download link.

This is the best program for downloading anything from YouTube I have found.
@smaragdus - $9.95 USD is very reasonable, but really sucks that only minor updates are included :(

I've always used the batch program and not the standard version, although it works well too. The batch is superior for downloading multiple videos. I use an older free version of the batch program that's limited to a max of 5 simultaneous downloads. From what I understand, the new batch version doesn't work at all without purchasing a license.

AutoText v6.6 Updated

agam on 21 Mar 2017
  • 305KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 1 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by agam

AutoText offers in a small tooltip window saved words, texts, phrases, snippets, etc. during typing in any other program and will insert the selected item directly to the cursor position. In case of unsuccessful search, Space, Return, PgUp, PgDn etc. closes the small window, so that fast and liquid typing is not disturbed. Three different search methods can be set.

In addition AutoText monitors the clipboard and saves the last X text entries of the clipboard, which can then be retrieved as well.
