VLC Media Player Portable Editor's Review

There are plenty of media player applications available for Windows and some of the popular ones are actually freeware. If you find the Windows media player inadequate or sluggish, give VLC media player a try. This versatile media player plays back literally every media file you throw at it and consumes moderate resources. The application is also available in a portable version, which eliminates need of installation.

The portable media player works on nearly all versions of windows. The nice thing about portable edition of VLC media player is that it does not fall short on feature and functionality compared to the standard edition. In fact, you get same features in it without letting the application affect Windows registry. Carrying it on USB drive is quite convenient since it does not occupy much space.

The UI of VLC media player may not be very sleek but it is simple and user friendly. There are no flashy buttons with animations or color changing hovering icons. However, Windows shortcuts work without any issues. You can however, download skins from the developer’s website. VLC also has some configuration options.

The application packs in audio and video capture along with DivX and MPEG streaming. This ensures you can actually play videos when they are still being downloaded. It is useful when you want to see beginning of a clip to decide whether you will download it or not. To cater to needs of audiophiles, VLC media player has a 12-band audio equalizer and Spatializer. There are plenty of options for video playback as well and overall performance is really good.

Positive Points:
Simple, uncluttered UI.
- Low on resources.
- Wide media format support.
- Video streaming and capture.

Negative Points:
- Nothing as such.

Despite the Open Source lineage, VLC media player gives several commercial rival applications a run for their money. Its portable version offers the added advantage of using without installation on any Windows PC. The ease of use is top notch though the interface may not be very appealing. It plays back a wide range of audio and video files and you are not likely to face codec issues much. The inclusion of video streaming and capture is like icing on cake. The included audio and video effects are also adequate for most users. Overall, this freeware and portable media player packs in enough punch for various types of users.

Rating: 4/5
