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:'' <code>~/.config/vlc/vlcrc</code> since 0.9. Before it was: <code>~/.vlc/vlcrc</code>
* ''Mac OS X:'' <code>~/Library/Preferences/org.videolan.vlc/vlcrc</code>
* ''Windows:'' <code>%appdata%\vlc\vlcrc</code> is generic and is expanded to:
** ''Windows 95/98/ME:'' <code>C:\Windows\Application Data\vlc\vlcrc</code>
** ''Windows NT/2000/XP:'' <code>C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\vlc\vlcrc</code>
** ''Windows Vista/2003 Server:'' <code>C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\vlc\vlcrc</code>
** ''Windows 7:'' <code>C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\vlc\vlcrc</code>
* ''BeOS:'' <code>config/settings/vlcrc</code>
* When used from the command line, sometimes there are unintended conflicts with settings in the config file; to ignore the config file, use: <code>--ignore-config</code>
