VLC for Windows Phone delay continues; Windows 8.1 version almost ready

It looks like the saga to get the VLC media player to launch for Windows Phone continues as developers are continuing to experience setbacks that postpone the launch. On a bit of good news, Thomas Nigro announced that the version for Windows 8.1 is almost ready so the wait won't be too much longer for desktop, laptop, and tablet owners.

The version for Windows 8.1 will come with a more responsive UI and new design, according to a tweet from Nigro, asking users to "please be patient, we are working hard to bring the best experience possible."

Nigro continues on Twitter saying that there are "still some things to fix. We've got delay on WP. We prefer to ship a good version instead of a boggy one."
