VLC media player for Windows 8/RT greenlit by Microsoft, a WP8 port coming too

It turned out that, due to the common kernel, writing the code for WP8 wouldn't be as hard as they thought, and they even contacted Microsoft for help. The boys from Redmond were actually thrilled by the idea, and started helping the developers...

Wow I hope it will be featuring subtitle and audio stream switching feature... I need that all the time.

Add the Xbox to that family and we will have a very happy Windows family :)

if this brings mkv and subtitle support then microsoft would be foolish not to allow them

This is why the Microsoft app store will do well. They are directly helping developers get things done and with that shared kernel, it really does make things much easier for them. I personally cannot wait to start building my own app. I will look forward to contacting Microsoft for that. Makes me wonder though, when is PhoneArena going to create an app for Win 8?

GREAT news! Just got my Surface RT yesterday and this was the first and biggest problem I ran into - no way to play my legit, legal, purchased digital copies and downloads of movies on my Surface RT! Any news on when it will be available?
