It's been too long since I came across a real gem so this one felt really good. The product synopsis is a little opaque in part because the program has a lot of flexibility. Most critically, it is a video tool for finding the video bit you need quickly. You wouldn't use this to watch movies, more as a precursor to editing them.
Supports: XP, Vista, 7, and 8 in both 32/64bits architectures. This program was compiled in 32bits (for compatibility reasons) but works in 64bits mode too ! (see documentation to learn how to use mplayer 64bits with it).Synopsis wrote:... a software created to scan your directories (and/or drives) to find and display several files in real time. It can be used to find, move, delete or preview any video/audio file. This is a "portable" software, this means that everything is already included inside the ".exe" (no installation, no registry keys, ...). It uses mplayer and MediaInfo Library to decode and display files (so it can play everything mplayer can play).
HamMultiPlayer scans recursively directories you selected and load any compatible file. You can then, sort generated list to find out duplicated or similar files.

Status: Portable. Writes no settings. Tested v0.111 (released 2015-08-05)
Screenshot: the program ONLY works in full screen so here's a big one: http://i.imgur.com/9tPrAm9.jpg
Stealth: Yes. Note that it writes data to AppData/Temp, but by policies stated here on the site, that's still stealth.
- The interface is a bit odd right at first but I almost immediately figured out how to use it. Very intuitive.
- Being able to load up a few videos and use the mouse wheel to quickly scroll through a video's thumbail is amazing.
- This is very important for video editors who often have to go through a whole lot of video
- Ideal for dealing with stock video footage
- Helpful for looking through several videos for important sections, basically turning this program into a reference utility.
- Works with a variety of media, not just video, making this useful for both audio and video
- Right-click on the file name for view settings (brightness, contrast, sharpness, mirror, etc.), speed controls, export, and more. There's even 3D settings in this, which blows my mind but maybe that's more normal than I think it is.
- There's some AviSynth interactions that I didn't test.
