Simple x264/x265 Launcher v3.02

Andrew Lee on 16 Jun 2022
  • 80MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Jun 2022
  • Suggested by deathcubek

Simple x264/x265 Launcher is a video encoder with a variety of configurations and preset templates. Includes full batch encoding support, as well as running several encoding jobs in parallel.

The program 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. The program also uses the 64-Bit version of x264 with the 32-Bit version of Avisynth, which lets you use 32-Bit Avisynth plug-ins (e.g. DGDecodeNV) and still benefit from the speed improvements of 64-Bit x264.

@jenss: don't think so, it's still available if you click "enter website" link in the bottom right corner -- the landing page is a form of war protest by the web owner.

jPortable v8 Update 341 Updated

SYSTEM on 7 Aug 2022
  • 157MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Jul 2022
  • Suggested by Checker

jPortable (formerly Java Portable) allows you to easily add a Java runtime environment to your portable device. It can be used in combination with jPortable Launcher to open Java JAR programs (many with their settings made portable) or used automatically with Java-enabled apps like PortableApps.com versions of LibreOffice and OpenOffice as well as web browsers like Chrome/Chromium, Opera, SeaMonkey and Firefox.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware / Partially Open Source
How to extract: Download the EXE and install to the folder CommonFiles\Java relative to the applications that use Java. For example:
  • If you have installed LibreOffice to Z:\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
  • Similarly, if you have installed the Java Portable Launcher in Z:\PortableApps\JavaPortableLauncher, install Java Portable to Z:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java
Java programs can be launched via batch files as well (thanks to user bro).

I've got jPortable working with X-LibreOffice as well. :)

E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib>dir /a
Volume in drive E is OHJELMAT
Volume Serial Number is A4D5-8D47

Directory of E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib

02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> .
02.03.2011 20:19 <DIR> ..
30.01.2011 10:36 <DIR> 7za
02.03.2011 20:19 <JUNCTION> Java [E:\CommonFiles\Java]
0 File(s) 0 bytes
4 Dir(s) 12 645 406 208 bytes free

The trick is that E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java is a junction that points to E:\CommonFiles\Java. This way the content of E:\CommonFiles\Java shows up in E:\X-LibreOffice\Lib\Java.

freakazoid: jPortable can work independently of PA programs, including muCommander and some others I've tested. I tried to edit the entry to help give some idea of how to make that work.

REVerdi on 2020-03-09 21:17

CommonFiles\Java64 don't need to be at the root of the app folder.

For example, I adopted the following folder structure:

D:\Apps\Java\CommonFiles\Java64\...
D:\Apps\Java\JavaPortableLauncher64\... (not necessary, but it works)
D:\Apps\IRPF\IRPF2020\... (the application that requires java)

And in "D:\Apps\IRPF\IRPF2020\" I created the following bat:

@echo off
start D:\Apps\Java\CommonFiles\Java64\bin\javaw.exe -jar D:\Apps\IRPF\IRPF2020\irpf.jar

For me, it worked perfectly!

The PortableApps Platform has been updated (a few times) since this was last updated.
I believe the current version is 11.2 (also there is a version 12 beta, I think its Beta 2)

Please update this listing!

ihateu: checker got it

shnbwmn on 2018-05-10 03:26

Latest version (v15.0) now supports .NET programs, the first of which appears to be KeePass Professional (or 2.x).

I'm having the same problem with another launcher, and horst explanation seems pretty accurate to me...

Napiophelios on 2015-03-15 16:22

I have used this program for a long time and I really like it;
I have always used it to launch programs,
but recently I have been using it to launch shortcuts to folders
and 2 out of 3 times that I do it,it crashes explorer.

Has any one else had this happen?

aazard on 2020-11-12 07:03

Note: 2020-11-12, still 100% functional, VERY nice option at its size

- v2.26 (x86) is infact 86kb, if reduced to exe, its needed ini/chw files & help/readmes combined to 1 txt file.

- only 2 programs that "still function 100% as of posting date" exist:

- VNChelper, at 80kb is SUPER NICE, its hard to pick between Qsel and VNChelper, they differ only in UI & 6kb file size... but I'm going Qsel for same function and 6kb SAVED.

- Then Popsel are smaller at 74kb, which is from same author and is funcationally the same with no "window" section, just a minimalist "fly-out" menu like Linux's "flux or black box" menus

(all reducing size with same readme method and UPX compressed via lmza)

All 3: Qsel, VNChelper and Popsil are FANTASTIC byte for byte
