    VLC fans get ready


    New VLC Windows 8 screenshots released; shows app working in Snap mode - Neowin

    IT'S ABOUT FREAKING TIME! It's taken a whole year and then some for the VLC Player app to be ported over to WinRT!

    But it looks VERY VERY VERY NICE!

    Methinks I'll use it over Xbox Music JUST because it looks more like Zune how I would design it as a WinRT app. Very well done!

    This is REALLY GOOD NEWS CR! Is it available for Windows 8, or is it only for 8.1?

    -ONLY if you use VLC for Droid, have they released the Droid version yet? I was d/lling the nightly Betas, there would be one per night. Until I finally gave away my Droid tablet.

    I use VLC Remote, which is a great app, and now it's available for Droid, iOS, and RT (and I think Unix, but maybe only in Server Form). The best feature? It has a full and friendly Youtube Explorer, you choose a moovie in YouToob you wanna watch, and it sends it straight over into your PC's Playlist, where it stays live for at least half a day, so you can load up quite a large playlist.

    VLC is the ONLY program that does stuff like this, because from the start it as designed for playing Media over your LAN hence it's name.
