VLC Media Player Portable


The portable version of one of the best multimedia players


  • Like VLC, but without installation.
  • Codecs included, and supports a wide range of formats.
  • Agile and efficient.


  • On including its own codecs, it’s possible that a user may miss the opportunity to customize.

VLC Media Player Portable is a portable version of the well-known video player. This program brings together all the options from the complete version, so you’ll be able to view any type of media content on the go.

All media files

VLC Media Player Portable supports AVI, MPEG, MP4, MKV, amongst others. It can also play DVD discs with interactive menus without any issues. This is owing to the fact that the program comes with its own codecs, which means that it doesn’t have to resort to external packs to be able to play all the formats in circulation.

VLC Media Player Portable also has some customization options to alter the images such as brightness, window size, contrast, and so on. The program is compatible with the use of subtitles (SRT, SUB, TXT) and with video files that have various audio tracks. Open the program and drag the files to the interface to open them, or add them to the playlist. It even supports sound files, so you can load your songs in the order you want and listen to them using this program.

Portability: its best attribute

Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly be any better,  VLC Media Player is also portable. The main advantage is that it doesn’t need installation and you can run it from any external storage device you want (USB sticks, memory cards, CDs, for example) in any computer with Windows.

VLC Media Player Portable is as clean and agile as the more traditional version of the program, with the advantage that it doesn’t leave any traces in the operating system that runs it (neither registry entries nor file associations).  VLC Media Player Portable arrives on your computer, does its job, and goes back to where it came from.
