What kills me is there are a Plethora of fake VLC apps, some or most that do absolutely nothing. No functionality, wont even play video's let alone a DVD and you have to pay for them without a trial period so when you find out it does absolutely nothing your stuck. Here's the killer - Videolan is made to jump through hoops to get there app on the store. I read that Microsoft partnered or is helping with the port and maybe due to there involvement reputation and all, want to make sure the app is good before releasing it. Funny how they are concerned now considering some of the apps they put out themselves. I do love Windows 8.1 and I like a lot of the apps available, as a matter of fact if I can find a Metro/Modern app that does a decent job I will replace the old Windows app. Only app I currently using that does not have a port is Media Center. The only 2 things Left in Media Center is Live TV / PVR functionality and playing DVD'S. Once VLC is available it will be only Live TV / PVR functionality.

Edit - I should clarify this. I am using a Metro/Modern app called Movie Premier that will play DVD movies I own and ripped to my Hard Drive (VOB) format. But the app will not play a DVD from my Blue-Ray DVD drive (blue-ray or standard format). I am hoping that VLC is capable of playing from the drive Even if it's just standard HD.

First public beta version of VLC app for Windows 8 released

One of the most popular free media players is now finally available for Windows 8. The team at VideoLAN has now completed work on version 1.0 of their VLC media player and it is now available to download from the Windows Store. The team actually submitted the app to the store for certification on Monday, but it took Microsoft a little longer than expected to actually approve and release it. This first release is considered to be a beta version.

It's in the store now, albeit some of you aren't going to like the idea that if you want you will have to put out cash. . .:doh:

Nope, VLC Player should be free as it's open sourced software.

So far just from the reviews, it's still buggy and is definitely a beta build since it displays that in the app...

It's about damn time.
