This version of the media player VLC is designed to be installed and run on USB memory keys
VLC Portable is a very useful program to keep on a USB memory stick. It supports a wide range of media formats including some that other media players such as Windows Media Player won't play without extra software.
Installation is easy. Double-click on the download and select a location to install to. This doesn't have to be a USB memory key and could just be a folder on the desktop if you want a media player that won't make any changes to the computer settings or the Registry.
Alternatively VLC Portable can be integrated into the Portable Apps launcher. Click on the Portable Apps icon in the Notification Area, Options and then Install a new app. Find this download and it will be installed into the correct folder.
Once installed VLC can play back DVDs and input from TV tuners. Audio and video file formats include: MPEG, AVI, ASF, WMV, WMA, MP4, MOV, 3GP (often used by mobile phones), OGG, Real, WAV, DTS, AAC, Raw DV, FLAC, FLV (Flash video files as used by Youtube, MXF and MIDI).
There are plenty of effects that can be applied to files including a graphic equaliser and spatialiser.
