VLC

If you are using the VLC beta app for Windows Phone, version 1.0.7 just went live in the Store. With it comes numerous fixes and improvements to make the favorite video player even more stable.

The changelog for version 1.0.7 is a bit sparse, but the developer leading the VLC for Windows Phone project, Thomas Nigro, did go into more details via Twitter.

A few days ago, VLC – the popular video app for playing odd Codecs – made its appearance on Windows Phone for the public. At the time, it was not clear if this was the official release or the public beta of the app. As it turns out, it was the latter. As such, some negative user complaints came in, at times unfairly targeting the developer, Thomas Nigro.

What followed next was an interesting – and disturbing – back and forth between VideoLAN (who own the VLC property) and the Windows Phone community. Although this incident is technically old news, the point illustrated is very relevant.

Update: Sorry guys, looks like this is still the beta release. While the link appears to have been leaked, this version is not meant for the public and it should not be considered the big, official release for this app. Stay tuned for the official version, which should address many issues that people are experiencing.

Versatile media player VLC is now available publicly for Windows Phone. The app has been in private beta for some time now, but can now be downloaded by all users from the Windows Phone Store.

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.
