Check for updates at startup

Automatically check for updates after program start and notify if new version is available.

When new version is available program indicates this by the icon in toolbar:

New version notification

Checking period

Perform next check for updates not earlier than after number of days specified via this option. Also if new version is already found, further checking for updates will not be performed.

Check for beta when running stable

Sometimes before releasing stable version there is available beta version. To get new features earlier within beta by the price of possible bugs you can use this option. When enabled it will notify about new beta version by the same way as about new stable version.

When beta version is already installed, it will check for beta regardless of this option.

Adapt UI for screen readers

If enabled, program will use UI elements that are better understood by screen readers.

Accessibility implementation for custom UI controls is a complex and time consuming effort. So there was taken alternative approach - when it does matter, instead of custom controls are used standard Windows controls, what leads to appearance worsening, but accessibility improvement. With that said, in some cases program has two UI variants, and this setting controls which one of them to use.

Value Autodetect means that the program will automatically detect whether screen reader is running and adapt UI if it is detected.

Known issue: tree control items with check boxes are not properly reported in 64-bit program version.

Show thumbnails

Turn on/off thumbnails in the main program window and feeds list.

When turned off, analysis goes a bit faster (no need to download thumbnail). On the other hand, regarding to thumbnail in the main program window, when it is enabled, there is also displayed clip duration at right bottom corner. Also in this case it can be saved on the disk by right click on it.

Use Windows taskbar features

Windows 7 and above

Option enables use of Windows taskbar to show analysis and downloading progress.

Download progress indication using Windows Taskbar

Maximum number of recent URLs and files

Sets maximum number of items to display in menu of Use one of recent URLs toolbar command and Recent Files submenu of Progress bar context menu.

When it is set to zero, toolbar command and Recent Files submenu will be hidden.

To clear recent URLs and files you can set this number to zero and then re-set it to appropriate value.
