For second part:. It doesn't 'break' playlist saving per se, but yes it does redirect it to the new location. I would consider that desirable in cases where VLC should be 'portable'. I'm not sure what to expect for skins and lua addons if they are broken since I don't use them, but I can still load the one skin included with the distribution. What is the preferred method if not using an environment variable that would allow a user or script to change VLCCONFIGDIR? The existing command line option does not affect where VLC gets the QT config, only vlcrc, per the referenced tickets. For first part: on Linux is maybe already 'too different'; there are other environment variables that can be used to achieve the effect of moving the configuration location.

VLC Media Player is an open-source program that enables you to play all kinds of media files on your Windows computer. Its intuitive interface provides access. Download 2.2.8 for Windows. VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and. For help getting VLC Portable up and.

I could not find another way to redirect the storage of the QT config on Windows. Unless I am misunderstanding what you're saying there. Replying to: Second part of the patch is wrong, because it changes the VLCDATADIR part, breaking probably skins2, lua addons and playlist saving. If that is necessary to avoid creating any folder in.

What is the preferred method if not using an environment variable that would allow a user or script to change VLCCONFIGDIR? The existing command line option does not affect where VLC gets the QT config, only vlcrc, per the referenced tickets. I also wonder why that vlcrc exists on default when those default prefs can be built-in. If it does not find that either, it creates an empty INI file in the directory, where WinSCP executable is stored in. If that directory is not writable, it creates an empty INI file in user profile directory.

Portable

We can look at example of known FTP client: WinSCP can store its configuration both to Windows registry and INI file. When installed, the configuration is stored by default into the registry. Portable versions use by default an INI file (if possible). When loading configuration, WinSCP first looks for an INI file in the directory, where WinSCP executable is stored in. The INI file needs to have an.ini extension and the same name as the executable (i.e. If INI file in not found there, WinSCP looks to application data directory of your user profile, i.e.

To C: Users username Roaming WinSCP.ini. When you opt to use INI file for the first time, WinSCP tries to write it to directory, where WinSCP executable is stored in. If the directory is not writable, INI file is stored to application data directory of your user profile. You may also use an INI file in a different folder or with a different name using /ini switch.

WinSCP can be downloaded in the form of standalone Portable executables. The executables in the Portable executables package are identical to the executables in an Installation package. The difference is that the installer pre-configures the executables to override their default portable behavior. Portable executables are intended for advanced users and specific needs.

For general use, use installer. On startup the Portable executables look for an INI file in the directory from which it was started. The INI file must have an.ini extension and the same name as the executable.

If it does not find any, it tries to create one with default configuration (if it fails to do so it uses registry, preventing portable use). As i'm interested by a native portable VLC, i'm joining to add my two cents. What is the preferred method if not using an environment variable that would allow a user or script to change VLCCONFIGDIR? The existing command line option does not affect where VLC gets the QT config, only vlcrc, per the referenced tickets. Not the perfect method but maybe an alternative.

(almost the same idea as mentioned by @Melis with winSCP) Instead of an environment variable use a 'trigger' file in the vlc directory (next to vlc.exe). If an empty file named, for instance, 'portable' is next to vlc.exe then vlc create a 'Data' directory (again, next to him) which contains whats go by default in '%APPDATA% vlc' and the 'vlcrc' file.

The disadvantage of an environment variable is that you need a launcher to set it in the case of foreign desktop. With a trigger file your vlc is always portable on the go. Currently, launchers that 'make' VLC portable use the command line '-config=' and move the folder '%APPDATA% vlc' back and force each time it is launched. One of the disadvantages of the launchers is that pipes can't be used. Pidgin uses another method. Replying to: jb, what problems do you expect for skins, lua, and playlist? Nothing, it's just that the caller needs to check that it works for both configGetDataDir and configGetUserDir( VLCDATADIR ), and so far, VLCDATADIR is not portable.

I've tried something similar now and all extensions and configuration are saved/loaded from the portable directory (like I expected). I'm sure you can do it, because it's you:) Lua extensions are found after restart, not sure if skins are detected somewhere automatically.

Did you try both pre-installed extensions and the Extensions folder? Replying to: Replying to: jb, what problems do you expect for skins, lua, and playlist? Nothing, it's just that the caller needs to check that it works for both configGetDataDir and configGetUserDir( VLCDATADIR ), and so far, VLCDATADIR is not portable. My idea was to check if there is a 'portable' directory where vlc.exe is. If yes, use it. Did you try both pre-installed extensions and the Extensions folder?

Yes, both pre-installed VLSub and the new extensions are available from the View menu. I've attached my changes, tell me how bad it is. Replying to: Replying to: @ssbssa, do you have any compiled binaries?

I'm willing to test your modifications for portable use. Yes, you can find it here: First, as a heavy user of VLC and portable applications: a BIG THANK YOU:). Using VLC 'portably' without the need of a 3rd party launcher/wrapper is a huge improvement (for 'my' use). Next, the feedback: So far so good! Currently, the only issue i found is with the languages. I copied the locale folder from the last 3.0.0 official snapshot but locale aren't loaded. Monitoring your vlc.exe snapshot (with process monitor), it seems that there is no query for the language.

Lua scripts and skins work fine. Replying to: Next, the feedback: So far so good! Currently, the only issue i found is with the languages. I copied the locale folder from the last 3.0.0 official snapshot but locale aren't loaded. Monitoring your vlc.exe snapshot (with process monitor), it seems that there is no query for the language.

I forgot that I disabled locales completely (I think I had a problem when building them), so a normal build would maybe work. But I did see that the language information is stored to and read from the registry, so this isn't 100% portable (not sure if that is important, the language can be overridden with -language). Replying to: If I understand correctly, the limitation of using the current 'portable' trigger patch is that I have to duplicate the binaries if I want to have a set of different configurations to launch. Is there maybe a way to also have a command line argument that could tell VLC to look elsewhere for the 'portable' directory instead of in the current directory? That way it is easy to do without making a launcher, but can also be overridden as needed.

That would make it much harder, and I'm not sure if I could make it work with the fontconfig cache at all.

But I did see that the language information is stored to and read from the registry, so this isn't 100% portable (not sure if that is important, the language can be overridden with -language). In the past, we autodetected the language, and we should go back to this, if there is nothing in the preferences. There is no reason to not have languages working in VLC portable. Replying to: I've rebuilt it again with locales enabled, you can find it again here: To make it portable, the directory 'portable' has to be created.

That works perfectly! Replying to: Replying to: Looks like album art isn't stored anywhere now (is that correct?), but the fontconfig cache is set by fontconfig-win32.patch.

Not sure what to do about that. Do NOT do anything about it. It is very very unportable: it is linked to the machine.

Making it portable will break VLC in bad ways. Not sure if i understand correctly this part of the topic but with your build, the folder 'art' is created in the 'portable' folder and covert art work fine. Replying to: Btw, you should start merging some code.:) Hum, does it mean that the portable mode is on the way to become official?
