P.s. You may want to configure a button on each page to that toggles comments sorted newest, 1st on top so when they go to the page they see the most recent and probably pertinent comments 1st, and last at the end of the comments end, so it is seen when comments are posted.

The previous comment to mine from mid 2011 was answered as to the reason it was no longer being updated at that time, but if that is the only reason, I think the PortableApps.com Portable Software/USB format version of CamStudio can be made available again.

Your X-CamStudio version 2.7.2 [rev5] page lists
System Requirements as WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
but I could not find the System Requirements at the
winpenpack.com X-CamStudio 2.7.2 [rev5] page.
CamStudio Portable 2.7.2 at The Portable Freeware Collection page
lists System Requirements as Windows XP/Vista/7/8
while the actual CamStudio home page lists
CamStudio version 2.7.2 (Build r326)as Compatible with
Windows XP, Vista and 7 ( although their Help page shows
CamStudio version 2.0 System Requirements were
Microsoft Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0, 2000, XP)
Are these all just slightltly different versions,
or do the system requirements need to be updated on your page?

GAG: The only one I've tested is XP and Win7 so that's all I can directly speak to. I can't find anything on the Camstudio home page about support levels and even Softpedia disagrees.

Simple x264/x265 Launcher v2.91 Updated

billon on 14 Jul 2019
  • 80MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Jul 2019
  • Suggested by deathcubek

Simple x264/x265 Launcher is a lightweight front-end for the x264 H.264/AVC as well as the x265 H.265/HEVC encoder, based on the Qt toolkit. It uses the 64-Bit version of x264 with the 32-Bit version of Avisynth. That lets you use 32-Bit Avisynth plug-ins (e.g. DGDecodeNV) and still benefit from the speed improvements of 64-Bit x264. Optionally you can also use 64-Bit Avisynth, which is still considered experimental, if desired, as well as x264's built-in LAVF/FFMS input.

Includes full batch encoding support for running several encoding jobs in parallel.

Sorry, errata corrige (info's missing here on portablefreeware): you can avoid the user's %localappdata% folder entries renaming "x264_launcher.exe" into "x264_launcher_portable.exe".

Checker on 2015-10-17 16:01

@siegfried: Thanks ... and changed ;)

Well I am glad it is Electron-based .
I would'n know what to do with it otherwise :)

Specular on 2019-03-05 08:39

@vmars316 - I checked and OBS Studio is QT-based rather than Electron-based (though a different project called Streamlabs OBS is). I've updated the entry.

Yucca on 2019-06-12 11:35

As of June 12, OBS version 23.2.0 is a release candidate and not the current stable version. The current stable version is 23.1.0. If you post a release candidate, that should be stated in the description so users can know what they are downloading.

@smaragdus fixed portable zip structure now.

ShareX is not stealth, it creates "ShareX.exe.log" in AppData (C:\Users\UserNAme\AppData\Local\Microsoft\CLR_v4.0\UsageLogs).
