    VLC media player

    VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols

    VLC was, is, and will continue to be the top multimedia player on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, pretty much because thereís literally no format that it canít deal with, so every single update is met with great enthusiasm by its users.

    And the past weekend, the team over at VideoLAN released a new update to VLC that brings it to version 2.2.4 on all supported desktop platforms, including Windows.

    This release is mostly about fixing issues with various components, so you can refer to the box after the jump to read the full change log. But itís still worth mentioning that VLC 2.2.4 comes with a dedicated fix for Windows XP systems, so if youíre still using this old platform, you should be happy to hear that this release fixes an overall creation for DirectDraw video input.

    There are several updated translations, including for French and Italian, but itís important to note that no new features are being added in this release.

    I see different download options.
    I see this with Pale Moon and IE running Win 10 RTM, everything is up to date.
    I would like to have the Zip package option you have, i want the portable version (Zip package).
    I now know how to get to the portable version, but it's a pita.
    It would be simpler for me if i had your options.

    Here is what i see with IE11 (same with Pale Moon) clicking on the "down arrow" for download options.

    Thanks Cluster Head, but that is not what i'm looking for.
    Those links are for for 2.2.4 specifically.
    I can navigate to all the versions to get the latest, but it's a pita.

    I would like an easier way to get to the latest version of the portable zip.
    To me it looks like Slartybart has this option, and i don't

    Thanks
    For me that link works like yours in Win 10.
    It works differently in Win 7 and doesn't offer the Zip option
    I'll save it and see how it works with the next release.
    I've also got the link to the FTP archive and that lists everything, from there i can get the portable version with any OS.
