Announcing VLC as a UWP
We’ve been quite silent on our work toward building the VLC app for Windows 10. We didn’t want to set any deadline until we were 100% confident, so we wouldn’t overpromise and underdeliver.
Plays everything, everywhere
More than ever, thanks to the power of UWP 🙂
Windows 10 Mobile
Redstone only, TH2 will probably not be supported. This is because of technical limitations around Background audio APIs, and bad drivers on the phones not receiving the RS1 bits.
Next week ! And this week for VIPs (¬‿¬)
Windows 10 Desktop SKU
Early may (no public beta)
Around mid may
Windows 10 on Xbox One
We’ve been working on Xbox One for a long time, even considered a Windows 8 app last year, but we could’nt because of the lack of proper APIs. The work on the Xbox One UWP port started in February, and it’s been a pleasure to follow the SDK updates.
Build from source
Check out our repo and try it yourself on your Xbox One starting next week. It’s still far from perfect but we have several pieces of code not merged yet in the master branch.
This summer, when developers will be able to publish UWP apps on Xbox.
