"This does all I ever wanted plus more"

May 17, 2011  |  By strikey

 |  Version: VLC Portable 0.8.6h

Pros

So easy to use and does the job well for a freebie. Its operations are basic which is just how I like it. Too much over inflated stuff as it is...we dont need anymore.

Cons

Hmmm...can't think of any at the minurte

Summary

Top performer at a freebie price.

"Plays some corrupted files."

January 15, 2011  |  By generic2

 |  Version: VLC Portable 0.8.6h

Pros

VLC will play almost anything. Its very good at playing quite a few obscure formats, even when they are mildly corrupted. I believe VLC can also do frame-by-frame analysis. It can also do slow motion, which is nice.

Cons

The large number of features are quite confusing to use some times. Its difficult to get the skip buttons to skip the appropriate times, but can be done with some effort. While it can play corrupted files it can't seem to actually fix them.

"A true icon in portable software."

July 04, 2010  |  By TheSoftwareManiac

 |  Version: VLC Portable 0.8.6h

Pros

Light weight, easy to use, simple, powerful, efficient, free. VLC portable really knows how to get the job done, and can travel anywhere without you without needing to install it! Simply beautiful.

Cons

Like any portable program designed for such things as flash drives (thumb drives) is the speed. When using a full version of software the speed with be presented at its peek; but as a portable version you will find some speed issues in loading.

Summary

What can I say about VLC, II mean it's free to use, and can be installed on any operating system. The Beauty to VLC is it's ability to basically play anything media related (video or audio). It's no different with the portable version either.
If you ever find yourself somewhere in a situation where a media file has to be played. Ops only problem is the computer at hand doesn't have anything that will run the media file, and you can go installing 6 gig programs into it; not practically anyways. So what do you do? You throw a copy of VLC Portable onto a flash drive, pop it into the system and your ready to go.
So I won't go in deep with this summary but lets face it; VLC Portable is just as powerful as the standard edition, and can preform all the same task. VLC has seen over 175 million downloads and is one of the worlds most trusted freeware software there is.
So get a copy today!

"EXTREMELY PLEASED"

January 19, 2009  |  By largerick

 |  Version: VLC Portable 0.8.6h

Pros

Small program yet big on satisfying.

Cons

You won't find any with this program.

Summary

I look for something that works, I could care less what the program's interface looks like. To me plain and simple is better than something that is beautiful to look at and doesn't deliver. VLC Portable 1 delivers! Thanks to all of those involved in the creating of this program.

"perfect for a jumpdrive"

August 08, 2008  |  By bmsskateinc

 |  Version: VLC Portable 0.8.6h

Pros

No bull, no ads. I keep it on my jumpdrive with all my different videos, if a friend or family member doesnt have the right player to show a video i just pull it off the jumpdrive. I dont even install it on their computer.
