vlc_portable_smallSo maybe you’re not ready for a web-based operating system but you still like to flit from computer to computer. That’s great for hitting up the web but not always so great for playing media files. Sure, if you’re sticking with Flash-based vids or a common file format, you’re likely in the clear. But you can’t expect every major codec installed on every PC you come across, can you? Lifehacker says that with VLC Media Player Portable, you don’t have to.

The highly flexible media application is part of the Portable Apps suite, which means you can carry VLC on a flash drive in your pocket. The download is 20MB, but will only take up to 37MB on your flash drive. The portable version has may of the same features as the latest desktop version and supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg and many other media formats.

  1. Portableapps.com has a lot more than VLC to offer for people who want their own apps with them when moving from computer to computer. Having your browser with all its bookmarks with you can be quite handy.

    Of course, you also have to get a portable version of Opera to add on there to make your portable experience complete… ;)

  2. Or you could get portable firefox for a better browsing experience :D the only problem with using VLC is that it still doesn’t support much in the field of HD decoding. I have to use specific codec packs on my Raon Everun Note if I want proper playback of HD videos.
