Second build submitted to the store.


Hello folks

After the first beta release a couple of days ago, a second build fixing the most important crashes has been submitted to the store, for certification. We'd like to thank the new contributors.

It should appear automagically in a few hours.

Next release, next week!

Have a nice week-end!

      I would also like the spacebar to pause/play. A very good looking app so far!

      I would like to have the space bar to come back to pause/play

      @Matthew: Please use the generic VLC bug tracker on and select "Port: WinRT" as component when reporting any bugs :)
      Thanks for your help!
