Screenshots show VLC Universal Windows 10 app in action

It's been a while since we have heard anything on the progress of the VLC media player project for Windows 10 on PC and Mobile. However, the team at VideoLAN has posted a couple of screenshots showing off the upcoming version of the app for the first time.

The screenshots show both the music player and video player for the universal VLC Windows 10 app. In a blog post, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, the leader of the VideoLAN group, states that the UWP version of VLC ran for the first time a few days ago on both x86 (PC and tablet) and ARM (smartphone) hardware. He added:

"A lot of fixes for the interface got in, but also compilation issues, fixes for WP8.1;we also got important changes on the Pivot and the SlideShow and on the responsive sizing and animations."

It sounds like there's still a lot of work to do before the app is released. Thomas Nigro, who heads up the Windows portion of the VideoLAN team, stated via Twitter there will be more news about the VLC Windows 10 app sometime in March.
