VidMasta (JRE online video manager)

VidMasta is a multi-platform JRE app so portability (untested!) is dependent on integration with Jportable, for example.

VidMasta latest release (currently v20.7) can be downloaded from https://sites.google.com/site/algwares/vidmasta.

Good suggestion - I'll try to look into this in the weeks ahead.

This looks to still be in development: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ALGwa ... ngeLog.txt

Based on a cursory look of the program, it's a 50 meg program that appears to be either a derivative or a fork of the bulky and overloaded Azureus torrent client, really aiming for a much more polite, simplified torrent client. The program includes it's own 28 meg JRE. Appears to be a nice, simplified torrent client.

Steps: Uniextract2, run launcher.jar\

Status: Not portable, writes info to Appdata\Roaming

Issues: the program found several movies I typed in with lots of good info, links to the trailer, etc. but doesn't actually seem to download anything. I didn't do a comprehensive check, just a few films. I did test the "new movies on startup" option for files the program suggested rather than a bunch of rare indie files that I had trouble finding elsewhere.

I'm leaving this in submissions just because it's possible someone might figure out a config tweak to make it stay in the local folder. It's also possible I had my security settings turned up too high and that's why the program wouldn't download anything.

I tried making a batch file with the -Duser.home=. setting and it still puts the VidMasta directory in appdata/Roaming. I was thinking about trying to start it using the vidmasta.jar file but I'm thinking that may cause issues. Wish I knew more about the programming side to see if I could check that stuff out.
