@smaragdus: You will note that the SourceForge page is now listed as being owned by 'sf-editor1'. That is one of the SourceForge staff accounts. What that means for CDex is detailed here in this Ars article:
http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/05/sourceforge-grabs-gimp-for-windows-account-wraps-installer-in-bundle-pushing-adware/

tl;dr: SourceForge decided that the project page was abandoned, took it over and bundled the installer with ads, as they have done for a number of other well known projects.

The link on this page still points to CDExPortable_1.7.8.paf.exe, not to version 1.8.1. PortableApps.com has the updated link.

@AndTheWolf: Good catch - I'm just using the PA home for both the website and download links.

@Emka, sorry for the delay. No, I didn`t post on the forums.

Great player, especially with a few tweaks. I use Meier crossfeed[1] together with Dolby surround emulation[2]. What this does is it spreads the sound out, as if you're listening to a live performance, and greatly reduces ear strain when listening with headphones (which I do 99% of the time). Other pluses are that it uses my own music directory structure, is very fast (opens in a snap), and it uses windows native look instead of someone's idea of a great skin.

@shnbwmn: FYI, Viper4Windows is a free general purpose Windows sound processor that includes similar tweaks, among many others... (V4W homepage appears to be having issues currently, but Softpedia has it: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Other-AUDIO-Tools/ViPER4Windows.shtml). Also available as Viper4Android.

Great player! Thanx for sharing....

smaragdus REALLY? wow I didn't realize that looks over substance was so important to sum people. Now I'm curious what others think about the "looks" of V4 or if most just don't care like me, please don't misunderstand I understand how you feel its just foreign 2me is all I'm saying. Of course if V3 suits your needs then by all means that's the correct version for you to use, no matter what I or others think. Enjoy.:)

Is it possible to disable the ID3v1 tagging? It's messing up the grouping of my mp3 files when i import them in the library.

I've been using this frequently as a replacement for the original Universal Extractor and it's so far saved me a lot of time and energy.

@ professional518: "What's new?" will show you the changelog.

Revelation777 on 2013-06-23 02:24

The "How to extract" should be changed so that it reads "Launch vv.exe." two v's instead of a "w". vv is for video to video

@Revelation777: Good catch tx.
