VLC, Blu-Ray menus & Java

Submitted by hmillman on June 10, 2022 - 2:17am

VLC requires Java in order to support menus on Blu-Ray discs. For VLC Portable this currently only seems to be the Oracle Java packages (jPortable). This may be an issue for some for licensing reasons. Could this Blu-Ray menu support be provided via the Portable OpenJDK packages as an alternative?

Thanks, H.

Openshot preview is slow and with no sound

Submitted by Botfather on January 18, 2022 - 4:33am

OS Win10 64bit, InstallPath C:\Users\myuser\Programme\Openshot Openshot-Version 2.6.1 / libopenshot 0.2.7 / Build Date 2021-09-04 23:49


the preview function is very slow. While I'm typing this, preview is running and made 3 seconds, while well a minute passed in real time. Re-installing did not solve the problem, I also downloaded it again. Of course, I've also tried several restarts both of the app and my laptop.

Best regards

LMMS + FL Studio

Submitted by idj on November 28, 2021 - 2:19pm

Hello everyone.
I have a legit FL Studio license, and I'd like to use it as portable.
I'd like it to be portable in order to use it (with LMMS) wherever I carry my drive, but I'd like to stick with LMMS for the following reasons:
- LMMS is lightweight, compared to FL Studio
- LMMS supports using FL Studio PlugIns and samples, but still requires plugins to be activated (so that's the reason why I also need a portable version of FL Studio)

winLAME version 2020 Release 1 does not work on 32 bit Windows XP Service Pack 3

Submitted by crapdawg55 on November 2, 2021 - 3:42pm

I installed winLAME to the Portable Apps Platform 19.1 on my USB thumbdrive.
When trying to launch the program the splash screen shows up and closes, after that nothing happens.
I waited for about 2 minutes for the program to come up and still nothing. winLAME is still listed to support
Windows XP on its download page.

FFMPeg not loaded by Audacity

Submitted by Largo on October 17, 2021 - 4:37am

Installed audacity 3.0.5 portable edition
downloaded FFMPeg 2.2.2 and put all files in

I launch audacity and tried to import a AAC audio file. Audacity says I don't have FFMPeg.

edit->preferences->library says FFMPeg libary not found
i used the button to manually locate the avcodec-55.dll and save it.
but I won't take it, no error message, no happy message. just no change.
I restart the app several times, resetting each time the FFMPeg libary to no avail.
