Finally the VLC app beta comes on Windows Store; however with a few limitations
It has been a while since the VLC Player application has been announced and though this seems a bit late but we are still glad that it has finally come to the Windows Store. The developers of the app have recently announced its availability on the Windows Store with a new beta and it has been designed specifically to aid with the new UI. This is almost the VLC which we already know except that it will feature a fresh desing and new look.
This is so far only a beta and developers havent tried to conceal so much about its limitations which keep going on for a long list including lack of hardware acceleration, subtitle and audio issues, lack of playlists and stream support and general stability issues. One thing to note here is that this VLC beta is not supporting the ARM at the moment so you can only make use of it with the x86/x64 based Windows 8 and 8.1 devices for now. For the ARM support we will just have to wait for a bit longer.
