Re: HandBrake - video conversion incl DVD and BluRay

Sweet! Didn't know Handbrake was natively portable. Thanks to those that updated the listing!

Re: List of Consoles, Shells, and Extensions

I like mintty the most because it's lightweight, but I need tab support and I'm not keyboard-savvy enough to use tmux. So for now, I've stuck with ConEmu because of tabs and because it's ultra customizable. Windows Terminal is looking good, but there's stll some ways to go before I'm ready to switch...

Re: Review of Walmart's $140 laptop

Still would be satisfactory specs for a netbook running either an older version of Windows or Linux :lol:

The Ars reviewer actually tested Fedora on there. I think it could be okay if you run really barebones apps, but even running YouTube at 720p would be a struggle I'm guessing.

Re: Foobar2000 - super customizable audio player

foobar2000 1.6 is on the horizon: https://foobar2000.org/changelog

This version will only support Windows 7 and up, so the last compatible version for XP/Vista will be 1.5.5 (although there might be another 1.5 release between now and when 1.6 drops).

Re: Visual Studio Code Portable - modern code editor

Didn't know that Microsoft would natively support portable mode for Visual Studio Code! That made me want to test VSCode out, so here it goes... First impressions: - Uncompressed filesize is 236MB - Appears to be an Electron app - Memory usage is beefy. Around 450MB idle. I've seen it jump up to 750...

Re: mpv (multi-platform CLI media player)

Thanks for the info, vevy.

Looks like MPC-HC already has HTTP(S) checked under "Source Filters" in the Internal Filters section by default, so should be good to go!

Re: mpv (multi-platform CLI media player)

Would you care to provide a practical example for this, freakazoid ? Meaning the command line you're using, for example? :thinking: First, make sure you have youtube-dl.exe in the same directory as MPC-HC. Then, pass the URL you want to watch in the command-line, so: mpc-hc.exe https://youtube.com/...

Re: mpv (multi-platform CLI media player)

The mpv method I listed works well if you just want to click a button in Firefox. Now that you mentioned how youtube-dl works with MPC-HC, I actually took a look at what I was doing wrong. You need to add youtube-dl.exe in the same directory as mpc-hc, then you can either paste in the URL under 'Fil...

Re: mpv (multi-platform CLI media player)

I've always loved mpv on Android, but haven't really looked into the Windows version until now. I wanted to hook up Firefox to forward YouTube URLs with youtube-dl to an external media player and found that mpv was the best option for this. For Firefox, you'll have to install the play-with addon so ...

Re: Brave (multi-platform web browser)

Yeah, there was always something off about Brave to me. I couldn't get behind the browser when it was first released.

Firefox is my main browser, but when I have to use a Chromium browser, I stick with Ungoogled Chromium first and Edge if I have to test something.

Cool! Maybe it's time we updated our listing to the native app instead of the PA.com wrapper?

Re: Pint - command line manager of portable apps (beta)

I recommend anyone interested have a look at Powershell -based Scoop : https://scoop.sh/ Thanks Midas! With the release of Winget , I had to come back to Pint and this thread. I think portable apps would definitely benefit from a command-line update app. I'm not sure if Winget will ever properly su...

Here's the thread discussing Image to PDF.
There are some gems mentioned by FileHandler in that thread.

He mentions i2pdf and ImBatch.

I think i2pdf looks like another great solution!

SwiftPDF does exactly what you want, I think.
Looks like a good program, Cornflower. Thanks!

I'll have to remember this thread the next time I have to batch convert a bunch of images into one PDF!
