One week ago I just update linux-desktop vlc and now have 2.2.0 with hardware acceleration and no ffmpeg lags. This is great!
Vlan org guys, instead of scolding Windows Phone users on Twitter, is it possible that you can actually post more updates to this project that's been going on for 2 years now. I backed this Kickstarter and would actually like to know the progress of the RT app now that the Phone app is still having issues?
Can we have some news or answers on why we haven't been added and where this project has gone?
@Carl I'm still waiting for my name to be added to the silver sponsors list.
My name isn't even in the thank you list, what! D:
I really dont understand, i like to say you are fake, if i know that you should make RT version i should not backed you up, it has been more then 1½ year after estimated delivery and i have not got a Alpha yet to test. Why Windows RT, i dont have any numbers but i should think that there is no big business in Windows RT, as far as i know no one i know has buyed a Windows RT computer.
They can't compile on ARM. No RT or Windows Phone version coming any time soon. REFUND ALL BACKERS!!
I'd really like to see the Windows 8.1 RT version that I backed released before Windows 9 is formally announced.
Still no Windows RT and Windows Phone 8.1 version? Is anyone working on this or you all are too busy with Android and iOS?
Windows Phone App coming in August still, no word on RT. Actually, NO WORD AT ALL FROM THEM ON KICKSTARTER!!!!! Thank God for tech sites.
Hi, no updates since April. can't open a video if VLC for W8 is chosen as default app in W8
Im not even in the "thank you" list... Wow, thanks guys.
Windows Phone app coming in August supposedly. As always, thanks for the timely updates and keeping those who gave you money in the loop.
How about an update on the ARM version.
When is the RT version for ARM devices coming out?
New version coming soon
Any update to share regarding your roadmap after the //build/ announcements ?
Since Neowin is reporting all the latest updates, here's what the Windows Phone version will look like.
Has this been recompiled to ARM yet? A large proportion of us are waiting for this.. we have the desktop version of vlc on x86
@John Ong: sorry for the crash in the initial beta. We pushed an update yesterday, which is available on the Windows Store right fixing this issue among lots of other bugs. Another update is forthcoming later this week!
This app isn't usable since it crashes on startup on my surface pro. It seems I am one of a handful of donators that's having this problem and wonder if there are any work around to this issue. I understand this is still in beta, but I don't think that even beta stage should perform better than this and I sure this setback is only going to delay the RT version even further.
@SardonicGorilla As they've explained, you cannot get an ARM/Window RT version without going through the process of converting the code to the "Windows RunTime" (WinRT).
The path really is (win32) -> (WinRT x86) -> (WinRT ARM) -> (WinPRT - phone)
You cannot do it in any different order.
Update regarding the ARM version :
So people running windows 8 (Intel) now have two VLC apps and people running windows 8 (arm) have none...
Yep well played... Massive -**FACEPALM**-
So when they said Monday, it meant submitted to the store, not published. So with the app certification times, it wont be before another few days, up to a week. :(
I just feel bad for the people who donated 1200 pounds and had to wait over a year with the rest of us with less than stellar updates.
To their defense they're not a company as such, just a bunch of blokes coding a really cool tool so i'm grateful for that. But it would only be polite to keep us informed as opposed to the random posts you can find on the PCInpact forums.
I dont get it. Even if it's buggy, just release it as a non-public app, and let the backers feel the love and feel that it was a good thing to give away some money.
I dont get it. Their communication is just so disrespectful. I made quite a big pledge and I really feel I've been ripped off.
I'm with you Greg. Found out by Neowin once again! It would have been nice if they released it to backers at least a few days ahead of time since we've waited OVER A YEAR!!!! I will never support this company ever again.
As usual more information is available elsewhere ... I really feel good to have funded this project /s
Recently Microsoft released a preview version of Windows Phone 8.1 SDK for selected developers.
I hope that files management will be improved with this .1 update! :)
ais plus attendre que celle-ci voie le jour. Moliplayer pour WP8 n'a certainement pas pris 1 ans a être codée et pourtant elle est parfaitement complète...
Je suis désolé mais ça n'excuse en rien le manque de mises-à-jour pour les backers ici. Aussi ce n'est pas la version x86 que la plupart de nous attendons mais bien la version ARM et WP8 et comme de nombreux j'ai du simplement acheter une autre application sur le store car je ne pouv
A leur décharge, il est important de préciser qu'ils ont été obligé pour de réécrire tout le code du logiciel pour que celui-ci soit compatible version ARM en plus du x86 pour être accepté sur le windows store. C'est ce qui leur prends le plus de temps et la charte de Microsoft ne les aide pas. Beaucoup de gens l'attende certes, mais vous comme moi on utilise la version bureau et on en est pas mécontent. Pour ma part j'ai financé pour 25£ ce projet et même si je l'attends de pieds ferme, je leur fais confiance pour nous fournir leur bébé le plus performant possible. C'est long c'est sûr, mais montrez-vous patient vous n'en serez que plus réjouis quand il sortira.
@Andrew: Exactly, neowin readers have more informations about this project that the people that paid for it...
Thanks for not updating the people that gave you money before tech websites! This KickStarter has been a joke with lack of updates, communication, etc. You should refund everyone.
Horrible, still no RT app. I really wonder what I donated for..!
not RT project anymore
How about January?
Danny W: Don't you know they took all of December off?
Happy new year! where is VLC Metro?
We have it before 2014?
mmh, I see a "VLC 5.0 Media Player" on the Windows Store... sounds like those guys are a knock-off. Perhaps VideoLAN should take some action?
Yay, almost 2 month without update yay! :D Sérieusement maintenant, une petite mise à jour serait la bienvenue
No updates and no product and it's been a year. Meanwhile MoliPlayer came out, http://www.wpcentral.com/moliplayer-pro-hands. So now, tell the people who gave you money, what's your excuse?
You should tell microsoft remove from windows 8.1 store all apps that claim to be vlc, or which include vlc or videolan on his name, and that even they hover between the 3 and the 6.99 euros, that should not be allowed.
For anyone looking for video player on Windows Phone 8, checkout MoliPlayer. It plays 720p h264/mpeg2 video flawlessly on my Lumia 520. Trial version available and costs on $2.99.
We have audio :) #metro
@John Ong, no change, no delay. Just not this year.
Does the release of Windows 8.1 changes or delays the release of VLC?
Thanks for the update. I take back my previous comment.
These guys are scam artists. No one should donate any money to these crooks.
