Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.10

webfork on 4 Nov 2019
  • 34MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Oct 2019
  • Suggested by jack

Pazera Free Audio Extractor takes the audio from most major video files without loss of sound quality or converts them to a variety of common audio formats. The program can also behave as a simple conversion tool from one audio format to another (e.g. AAC to MP3).

Some supported formats include (audio) MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, OGG, WAV, ALAC, WavPack, AIFF; (video) AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, VOB, MKV, WebM and OGV.

Note: By default, the program will extract/convert to MP3. Select "Try extract original audio stream" to avoid re-encoding. This is faster, but may result in a format some devices can't read. Additionally, the program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can easily customize audio encoding parameters with output parameters.

@hamasaki, To save notes to DropBox , use the Export function, and Export to your Dropbox location.

Cornflower on 2015-01-02 21:37

Printing! I don't know where I saw it, but to Print from Mempad, Export (Page, Node, or Structure), then in the dialogue box, tick "Open the file" and "with program:" and type in notepad.exe /p (or as I do, ted.exe /p -- see ted.exe at http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=858)

hamasaki on 2015-05-01 15:25

@Cornflower, I`ve tried that but when you save in MemPad it doesn`t update the dropbox file, you have to export it again. No good.

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) v0.6.2

billon on 7 May 2019
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 May 2019
  • Suggested by ashghost

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) presents a before-and-after image compression view that allows you to reduce file size of an image into JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Includes optional metadata removal, batch operations, compression to a target file size, transparency options, and other common editing functions (flip, rotate, zoom, pan). Notable versus similar software in the ability to gradually reduce the available colors one-by-one (7, 8, 9, 10...), not just milestones of 16, 32, 64 etc.

The program is also available as a plugin for XnView, GIMP, or Irfanview (see website).

Functional in Linux using Wine. Many of the official entries here on PortableFreeware have used RIOT for compression. Note that the installer version of this program is considered adware.

  • PNG compression settings “minimum” and “low” are always remembered upon program restart if save settings on exit is enabled.
Changed:
  • Improved check for updates procedure. Now enabled by default. Does not create temporary files anymore.
Fixed:
  • Clipboard lock.
  • Keep original date/time if in-place optimization.
  • Prevent delete of original if in-place optimization and “Delete original files” are used.
  • Keep original file extension when saving files in batch.
  • Keep original file extension when saving files from the main window.
  • File extension filter when using the Save As dialog for less common JPEG extensions.
  • Render images after Auto resize dialog is discarded.
  • Multi-monitor issue: restore position only if the saved position would be inside the visible area.
  • Overriding settings in “Auto, Custom Format mode” did not switched the mode the Manual.
  • “Auto, Custom Format mode” blending transparency for JPEG format (white color used now by default instead of black, but should use the last chosen color).

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

@zorro:
I updated my default PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.320) today. Tracker Software still updates the Viewer.
Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

PAFuser on 2017-06-30 15:11

Mixture is correct. Only need as viewer with able to add text comment (download utility bills and mark date paid, less paper stored).
