VLC for Windows 8. A native app, fully featured and fully open source. Play all your files, streams and optical media. Read more
This project was successfully funded on December 29, 2012.
Additional goals and ideas
This evening, we crossed our goal of £40,000. Thanks again for your generous support and for allowing us to realize our project!
Any further money coming in will greatly speed up the availability of our port of VLC to Windows Phone 8, since it will allow us to parallelize the workload of the ports to Windows 8 / RT and Phone.
Furthermore, we would like to propose a few additional features, on which we will be working full-time after the initial release is done and as long as money is left:
- camera input support — This allows you to record anything your connected cameras can see and to stream it live where ever you like.
- DLNA client and server integration — Play media stored on DLNA capable servers on your Windows RT tablet or Windows Phone — Stream everything VLC can play on your tablet or Windows 8 PC to your DLNA capable devices (Xbox, ...).
- integration with locally attached devices for media playback and synchronization
- Smartglass support
Thanks again for all your feedback and your support. We are looking forward to go all-in on this project!
