You can edit settings for VLC by navigating to the menu toolbar, selecting Tools, and selecting Preferences (or by pressing Ctrl+P).

  • To save your preferences, click Save.
  • To show more options, switch the Show settings radio button to All.

Configuration File

The preferences stated in the options are stored in a configuration file. There is one configuration file per user, stored at:

  • Unix, Linux and BSD: ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc since 0.9. Before it was: ~/.vlc/vlcrc
  • macOS: ~/Library/Preferences/org.videolan.vlc/vlcrc
  • Windows: %appdata%\vlc\vlcrc is generic and is expanded to:
    • Windows 95/98/ME: C:\Windows\Application Data\vlc\vlcrc
    • Windows NT/2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\vlc\vlcrc
    • Windows Vista/7/8/10: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\vlc\vlcrc
  • When used from the command line, sometimes there are unintended conflicts with settings in the config file; to ignore the config file, use: --ignore-config
