VLC media player for Windows Phone 8 may launch as early as next week

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.

That's according to Thomas Nigro, who had this to say on Twitter:

Here's hoping the team does not encounter any more "unforeseen delays." How many of you are looking forward to the imminent launch of the media player?
