VLC media player, the Open Source video framework.
popular video player application VLC is currently working on the Windows 8.1 version instead of Windows 10 Mobile. This was revealed by the main developer of the app, Thomas Nigro, on Twitter. .@Nitsiitian We’re working on a Windows 8.1 release and preparing the Windows 10 port, it takes time for many reasons. We’ll give news :) Thomas Nigro (@ThomasNigro) January 15, 2016 He said the reason the team is still focusing on Win8.1 is because they think there are many Win8.1 devices that won’t receive the Win10 update. .@JCalMN But currently, honestly, we’re still focusing on Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 10 because we think many WP8.1 won’t receive W10M. Thomas Nigro (@ThomasNigro) January 15, 2016 Nigro further revealed that although a Win10 port is being prepared, the focus would shift to the Win10 version only “when we think we have a good last release to send to the WP8.1.” .@JCalMN We’ll start working fully W10/W10M when we think we have a good last release to send to the WP8.1 that will not see W10M.
We’re inching closer and closer to seeing VLC on Windows 8 and Windows Phone. The project started a little over a year ago and was funded by users via Kickstarter.
