stb-imv

Program: stb-imv Version:1.02
Author: Open Source
Website: [ https://code.google.com/p/stb-imv/ ]
Download: [ 73.6 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: imv(stb) is an extremely lightweight and fast image viewer/browser for the Windows platform. The current executable is about 70KB (without executable compression). Inspired by vjpeg, imv(stb) offers a very simple, no-frills image viewer with a minimal interface. Each opened image is easy to drag and resize. A minimal border around the image makes it easy to see the contents of the edge of the image, and (compared to vjpeg) prevents you from confusing a screenshot of a windows application with the actual application. Inspired by Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, imv(stb) lets you navigate through multiple images in the same directory in a single window. Unlike Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, you can have multiple imv(stb) browsers open simultaneously.
Notes: Pay attention to the downloads, there are binary and source distrobutions mixed in with each other.

SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winning MPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats. But apart from providing access for the most common and useful options of MPlayer, SMPlayer adds other interesting features like the possibility to play Youtube videos or download subtitles.
