We saw a screenshot of VLC on the 1520 earlier today and it seemed that it might be finally coming soon to WP Store.

Now there’s confirmation that the VLC release for WP should be next week. There’s a “hopefully” attached to that, but it looks likely that we’ll see it sooner rather than later.

For those eagerly waiting  for popular VLC for Windows Phone, we’ve some bad news. The release date forVLC media player for Windows Phone has been pushed back once again. But the good news is, Windows 8.1 version is almost ready for release.

VLC player for Windows Phone has been in the works for quite some time now, but every time when the app is close to its release something else gets in the way and team get forced to delay it.


Thomas Nigro, designer and developer for Videolan, has confirmed the news on twitter that VLC for Windows Phone has been delayed again, as they does not want to release a buggy version of the app. While VLC for Windows 8.1 is quite ready, but there are still a few more things to fix before the final app becomes available in the Windows Store.


The team at VLC is working hard to bring the popular multimedia player to Windows Phone. Thomas Nigro, the designer/developer for VideoLan has shared some details with screenshots of the upcoming VLC app for Windows Phone.

The project to brings the popular player to Windows 8 and Windows Phone started a little over a year ago and was funded by Windows community via Kickstarter.


The VLC app is now an universal app with 90% code share between the Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1. The XAML code is designed to be responsive so the app work well on all screens: phones, phablets, tablets, laptops and desktops.


Thomas also writes that performance-wise, the current version of app is a lot faster than before and more responsive on tablet. The team is also upgrading the VLC wrapper from Direct2D to Direct3D, which will bring another bunch of performance improvements. The current version also lacks DLNA support on Windows Phone, but this may change in future.
