VLC player for Win 8/8.1 to be resubmitted next week, for WinRT & Windows phone in few weeks.

 

Main-Library

We now have some timelines about VLC player’s arrival on Windows. So, according to the info shared by team VLC, the application may be submitted next week for approval at the Windows store. They also mention “few weeks” timeline for Windows RT version of the player and similarly mention that “Windows Phone should not need a lot of extra work for the API, but will need some work for files management”. So, we can safely assume similar few weeks timeline for Windows Phone as well.

We are preparing the release, fixing the important bugs, notably an audio crash that got us rejected from the store. We have numerous small bugs that are annoying, notably some thumbnails, crashing and the audio browsing part.

We hope to work on it until this week-end and then submit once again.

At the same time, we’re spending quite a bit of time to get a working version for ARM, so we can deploy on Windows RT too. We don’t know exactly how much time, but we hope it’s a matter of weeks. The issues are mostly compiler related.

Windows Phone should not need a lot of extra work for the API, but will require some work for files management. Adaptation of the basic UI should be simple enough.
