Videomass (video downloader/converter)

#1 Post by Midas » Sat Jun 19, 2021 3:45 am

Videomass is yet another recent find I wasn't able to thoroughly test but seemingly natively portable, it deserves a quick post, IMHO.
Videomass is a cross-platform GUI designed for FFmpeg enthusiasts who need to manage custom profiles to automate conversion/transcoding processes. It is based on an advanced use of presets and profiles in order to use most of the FFmpeg commands without limits of formats and codecs. It features graphical tools for viewing, analyzing and processing multimedia streams and downloading videos via youtube-dl.

Shame, after some quick testing of Videomass and although settings and presets are initially located in the 'share' sub-folder, they get copied to '%APPDATA%\videomass' after the first run, making Videomass neither portable nor stealth, just "no-install"...

As I couldn't find a built-in workaround, I'm moving it to "Not Portable".

A related issue was posted to https://github.com/jeanslack/Videomass/issues/25. (Answered by dev; didn't test.)
