Is flv player portable?

I'm using it in conjunction with a firefox extension called Video Downloader (basically it lets you get video from say youtube, and then play it on your local pc)

I *think* it's registry free, but if someone could confirm that would be good (it's a typical install, then copy the folder and uninstall, and you are left withjust the program)

url for flv player is: http://www.martijndevisser.com/blog/article/flv-player-updated

I know that vlc player supposedly plays flv files (youtube and web site flash video) but I couldn't get either portable vlc or the full version to do so (I don't know if I'm missing a codec or something)
But flv player is fine, "it does what it says on the tin"
Provided of course... that it IS portable, please advise.

I can get flv files from YouTube to play just fine in VLC, its just that with most of them, VLC can't read the index.

They link they give is broken.

I can't see FLV at all since v0.8.5 (I have Flash v6)

Sadly, v0.8.5 works only with Flash > 6. Up to v0.8.4 it worked with Flash v6 too. So I use a program called FLVPlayer until VLC comes back to its senses.

Registry - no, application data - yes

It stores its plugins' cache there.
The only way to stop it is to run it with these parameters:
vlc --config zero-cache

(yes, those are 2 "-").

"zero-cache" is just the name I gave to a file in which I wrote:
[main]
plugins-cache=0
