  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

VLC is a skinnable, feature-rich media player that supports a wide variety of multimedia file and streaming formats. It can play files while they download, from inside RAR files, online radio stations, convert video formats and much more. The software can also behave as a streaming server for delivering video in unicast or multicast mode.

The file vlcrc in the 'portable' folder has this entry :

[skins2] # Skinnable Interface
# Skin to use (string)
skins2-last=vlc_deepdark.vlt

VLC seems to accept relative paths (here at least). I have vlc_deepdark.vlt in the same directory as vlc.exe and it works OK.

Also with 3.0.0, no files/dirs left anywhere else. But creates a QT reg key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\QtProject\OrganizationDefaults\FileDialog

I run vlc from a NSIS exe which deletes that key after VLC exits.

..at least with "native skin" there's no QT-Key left behind - I just checked it. When activating alternative skins, the Key appears but can be handled with a batch or portable starter like gbrao mentioned.

"Download the ZIP-Package" in description is a bit misleading: fuzzing around with the scripted download-button, you won't find a ZIP. At least I didn't find it.
Simpler: select "our FTP archive" under "older versions" (lefthand, underneath the small slideshow) - there you also find the newest versions as ZIP.

Whilst I do have a commercial licence for this, my personal favourite search utility is File Locator Pro.

Why do the dependencies include the administrator rights?
SyMenu can work with normal rights too. It can even work from read only supports or network paths.

I have been using this NirSoft App for a long time and it works great like most NirSoft software.
