Clean VLC last read media

Recommended Posts

Don't know what length of time you mean

but the following is what is cleaned by ccleaner for VLC

[VLC Media Player]
ID=2164
LangSecRef=3023
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\videolan\vlc\vlc.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%appdata%\vlc\art\artistalbum\|*.*|REMOVESELF
FileKey2=%appdata%\vlc\art\arturl\|*.*|REMOVESELF

do you feel there ought to be more cleaned?

In my case (XP, VLC 1.1.6 - yes, I know it's old) C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Application Data\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini holds the Recent Media list, and can be added to the Include section of CC with no problems.

does the ini hold anything else besides RML?

It holds the last 'what folder I looked in to open' address (but rebuilds that when recreating the folder) and size and some other options. I don't delete this with CC, I just found it when I read this thread.

Forgot to say I use the standalone (no installer) version. :unsure: That may explain why.

 

I tried a search in the registry but nothing, unless it's encoded? Sorry can't find where it's keeping the information.

I do not understand "standalone"

I can advise that Portable versions of VLC are "no installers" and Portable anything is by definition NOT allowed to use the registry.

If it's the PortableApps.com version you'd need to find where it stores settings where you extracted VLC, and can then put the settings file(s) in CCleaner's Include area.

 

Should be located somewhere like this:

C:\VLCPortable\Data\settings\
