VLC Media Player – Always on top by default

If you’re sick of having set VLC media player to play on top there’s a setting hidden in the options to make it always on top by default. Here’s how:

  1. With VLC Media Player open, click on the ‘Tools’ menu then select ‘Prefrences’.
  2. VLCMediaPlayer-AlwaysOnTop1
  3. Click on the ‘Video’ button to open the Video Settings page
  4. Place a tick next to ‘Always on top’
  5. Click ‘Save’ to save the changes
  6. VLCMediaPlayer-AlwaysOnTop2
  7. VLC Media Player will now play videos on top by default – no longer requiring you to manually select it.
