VLC making its way to Windows Phone very soon

It looks like highly-anticipated media player VLC will be making its way to Windows Phone next month. Developer Thomas Nigro is planning to first release the app as a beta, just as he did with the recent Windows 8 app. Nigro is planning an August release for the first version of VLC for Windows Phone.

Part of the work on VLC is the new music player as an alternative to Xbox Music. For those that are unfamiliar, VLC is a media player known for its support for a wide range of files. VLC for Windows Phone will require Windows Phone 8.1 to work.

Are you excited that VLC is coming to Windows Phone soon? Let us know below in the comments.
