Hello Skwire,

Here is a list of bugs I encountered after a couple of minutes testing it:
-It doesn't always show app icon in about child GUI, I think your better of using static control and STM instead of picture control, less embarrassing.
-Use "UseErrorLevel" when running a link in case there is no default browser.
-Very slow startup.

Ganamyde: recommend posting that to forums (I just added an official forum thread to the entry). Also, I'd include which version of Windows you're using.

Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.10

webfork on 4 Nov 2019
  • 34MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Oct 2019
  • Suggested by jack

Pazera Free Audio Extractor takes the audio from most major video files without loss of sound quality or converts them to a variety of common audio formats. The program can also behave as a simple conversion tool from one audio format to another (e.g. AAC to MP3).

Some supported formats include (audio) MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, OGG, WAV, ALAC, WavPack, AIFF; (video) AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, VOB, MKV, WebM and OGV.

Note: By default, the program will extract/convert to MP3. Select "Try extract original audio stream" to avoid re-encoding. This is faster, but may result in a format some devices can't read. Additionally, the program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can easily customize audio encoding parameters with output parameters.

Category:
Runs on:Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch AudioExtractor.exe or AudioExtractor64.exe.

Optionally, delete unnecessary languages and styles.

Hi Kanu,

You wrote : "The author says the program doesn't write in other places that in his own folder."

Sorry, but I never said that : HamMultiPlayer needs to decompress files to be able to work and it does that inside "%temp%\HAM\". This directory is used to store HMP_mplayer.exe + MediaInffo.dll and 4 ini files. If you use HamCpu, HamMultiPlayerCPU.exe will be decompressed too. If you use thumbnails display, thumbnails will be created inside the same path and deleted when you stop using it...
The only exception is when you select "SaveBeside" in prefs. In this case, prefs file is saved beside HamMultiPlayer (in same directory for reasons of portability).
Portable means "no installation", not "without file writing".

If nevertheless you see others files spread everywhere, please let me know and check that your version is the one coming from my web site.

Barnuble.

Sorry if I sounded hostile but the web says 'This is a "portable" software, this means that everything is already included inside the ".exe" (no installation, no registry keys, ...)'.
Those three dots means etc.; so, portable + etc means no writing beyond its own folder because that's what portable means: I can move the folder to other drive and keep the settings.

But the problem, as you pointed, was that at first I didn't tick the "Save beside" checkbox. So, my suggestion after this would be to rename that box to a more common wording. But anyway, the blame is all mine. Sorry again.

The program is very useful, by the way.

webfork on 2016-12-10 04:46

@Kanu: Different sites have different definitions for portable but here "Stealth" is the term used when a program doesn't modify files outside of it's application folder (including the registry). HamMultiPlayer is not stealth but is portable. Please post in forums if you'd like to discuss further.

ExifToolGUI v5.16

webfork on 7 Feb 2016
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by AlephX

ExifToolGUI is a tool for viewing/editing metadata inside a long list of file types including document, audio, video, image, PDF, and more. For images, the program can both view and edit metadata information such as camera/device used, settings on the device, and even map the location the picture was taken if the camera has GPS capability. The program also supports IPTC and XMP tags, has batch capability, and can import/export all tags.

For privacy (and file size), the program can remove all metadata from selected files.

The program is a front-end for the cross-platform ExifTool. It extracts the content of ExifTool.exe to a temp folder under the user's folder, along with thumbs, if enabled.

Category:

Disregard that, I just got it working. The instructions were a little confusing.

webfork on 2012-05-02 23:01

gms9813: thanks -- updated the instructions a little, hopefully its easier

webfork on 2013-11-17 01:18

Everytime I use it, this program surprises me away with a LOT of data about files. If ever you want to try and understand the history, author, or other details about a given file, ExifTool is a great place to start.
