Announcing VLC as a UWP

Hi everyone,

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.

Public Beta

Next week ! And this week for VIPs (¬‿¬)

Official release

Early may

Windows 10 Desktop SKU

Closed beta

Early may (no public beta)

Official release

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.

Official release

This summer, when developers will be able to publish UWP apps on Xbox.
