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

[skins2] # Skinnable Interface
# Skin to use (string)

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 :

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.

May want to look at that Beta version first. I remember trying it once and went back to released version. Can't remember the details of why I decided to do that.

@TP109: Thanks for the warning, appreciated...
