Portable Youtube Player

Hi,

I'm looking for a good portable youtube player.
That I can run on Windows 7 (and 10) and don't have to be installed.

Important is that:
- I can add new items to a playlist via drag and drop form browser
- it can save playlists
- is portable
- it can play the videos without the bling bling around the video content
- it is possible to minimize to tray
- could be controlled via hotkeys

KR,
P.

Nice - but found some problems with it:

Some of the Videos are not played "not available" - but opening the URL directly plays the video.
And if I full-screen the player on my second screen the rendered Youtube Video is displayed on the main screen without the players chrome.

That could possibly be a codec issue!
