SDK build:

NaCl build and other platforms: http://dl.nwjs.io/v0.13.0-rc4/

There are 3 builds for each platform - normal build, sdk build and Nacl build. Normal build doesn't have devtools, only SDK build does. lt can be opened by pressing F12 (Cmd-Alt-I on OSX). SDK packages also have more development tools to be exposed in the following releases, as well as the NaCl support.

Our build infrastructure enables live binary build from git tip so you can access to the latest binary from http://dl.nwjs.io/live-build/

btw, I couldn't reproduce it. Please provide more information in issue. e.g. the platform you're using. Does it send the request immediately after launch? And the log with '--v=1' in the command line: http://docs.nwjs.io/en/latest/For%20Users/FAQ/#consolelog-doesnt-output-to-linux-terminal

It sends this requests not contantly, if I found how to reproduce - then I send you message.

With nwjs-sdk-v0.13.0-rc4-win-x64, I get the following error when double-clicking nw.exe:
"The program can't start because ffmpeg.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

The file should be there within the official zip. Would you check it?

Yes, the file is there.

I'm not on the Windows machine atm, but I'll check tomorrow to figure out what the problem was.
