VLC for Windows Phone and Windows 8 closer to release as finally audio works in the Modern UI

Ever since VLC announced they are hard at work on an adaptation of their famous video player for the Metro interface, the Kickstarter project amassed the funds needed in no time, and finally we might be nearing release. Thankfully, Microsoft has been helping all the way, and the VLC team just announced it has managed to crack the code of video audio working in the Metro interface, which was the main culprit for the delay.

Not only that, but because of the common kernel, they've been branching out into porting the player to Windows Phone 8 as well, which means that we will soon have the best video player for both the Windows 8/RT and the Windows Phone platforms, breaking one of the barriers for spending more time in Microsoft's new touchscreen UI.
