VLC: Why make this?

Im just curious as to why have this here since you can get one from the main vlc site that is porable. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
You just download the zip archive instead of the exe.

Two Main Reasons

1. SETTINGS - VLC stores all its settings locally within C:\Documents and Settings\[login]\Application Data... the portable version keeps them on your portable device.

2. SIZE - Regular VLC is 26.6mb installed. Portable VLC is 10.2mb. This is accomplished by removing things that you don't need when portable (ActiveX, http, etc) and using UPX compression on the EXEs and DLLs.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Can this work with Firefox?

Is there a way to make this the default player for Firefox?

...

I think he means that he wants Portable VLC to start automatically whenever he clicks a multimedia link in Firefox.
