VLC

Update: Looks like the beta subscriptions have ended for VLC on Windows Phone. There's more good news though, as VideoLAN has announced that a beta for Windows RT devices may be available in a "week or two."

Original story follows: Disheartened when VLC did not announce anything on the Windows Phone front last week? So were we. There's light at the end of the tunnel, however, as the team behind the popular media player announced that they're now looking for beta testers for Windows Phone.

VLC media player for Windows Phone. It's coming. We're excited, and judging by the amount of interest we've seen from you guys over this, you're excited as well. After getting the media player working on ARM-based hardware last week, the VideoLAN team is currently getting the app certified for Windows Phone 8, with a tentative launch date scheduled for next week.

The VLC team have finally released the Windows 8.1 update for their app, which should now be available through the Windows Store. Version 0.1.0 marks the second major release of the popular media suite, but remains in active beta. While the team behind the app are very much still working on new features and squashing known bugs, it's a far more stable experience compared to previous versions.

Thomas Nigro has shared some details covering the VLC app for Windows (and Windows Phone) on his personal blog. The developer notes how it has been decided for the team to drop supported for Windows 8 (and keep building for Windows 8.1), really focusing on optimization and getting everything neatly tied together cross-platform..

Not everyone are fans of the native Windows 8 Music and Video apps, but for those who are looking to find an alternative solution – you will not have to wait any longer. Back in November of 2012, VLC announced a Kickstarter campaign to launch the software on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. As of today, the application has passed certification and is now published in the Windows 8 Store for x86 and x64 based machines.

RT and Windows Phone versions will still have to wait, though they are planned.

The wait has certainly been an enduring one, but we're almost there folks. The VLC team has updated the Kickstarter blog with an entry detailing some work carried out on the port to WinRT platforms. The team believes they'll be in the position to submit the app once again to the Windows Store this week, so we should see VLC on Windows 8 in due course. What started a few months ago as a Kickstarter project is soon to become reality. Pass the break to see some screenshots.

The VLC team has updated its Kickstarter page for Windows and Windows Phone. The update details progress made with an explanation as to why there has been a lack of posts. It's said that much progress is being made with the Windows version and the sheer determination and amount of work required is why there has been a rather quiet period.
