VLC is rightly considered the best and most versatile video player of them all. Renowned predominantly for its ability to handle any and all file formats thrown at it, maker VideoLAN has been busily updating and improving its assortment of mobile variants, and today, has made a rather big announcement in this regard. The crux of it is that VLC will be returning to iPhone and iPad, having been in hiding since the launch of iOS 8; the Android version is now finally out of beta as VideoLAN also adds an app for Android TV (beta), and there are also new versions for Windows Phone and Windows RT - along with a few other notable updates across the wider VLC product range. So, not much, then.
It took quite a while for VideoLan to bring forth a Metro-fied version of its famed VLC media player app for Windows 8, but despite the lengthy delay, it was definitely worth the wait. Late on last year, Microsoft went ahead and pushed Windows 8.1, a reasonably tweaked and improved version of the original Windows 8, and although it has once again taken a while, VLC for Windows 8.1 is now upon us. Full details, as well the all-important download link, can be seen after the break.
It has only taken the best part of 18 months, but VideoLAN has finally come through on its promise to tailor its famed VLC media player for users of Microsoft Windows 8 / 8.1. Finely tuned for seamless integration with the tiled interface, VLC for Windows 8 is now available to download, although unfortunately for Windows RT users, the RT edition is not quite ready.
VLC is a household name as far as most desktop and Android users are concerned, but while the famed app did once grace a fledgling iOS App Store in its early days, it was pulled without much warning and resigned to being jailbreak-only. Thankfully, the iconic media player returned to its rightful home recently in the form of VLC v2 for iOS, and having been rejuvenated by a bunch of great improvements, the VideoLAN team is back with more enhancing features for those on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
VLC is undoubtedly the second most popular media player on both Windows and Mac. The app's ability to play just about any file thrown at it is the thing of legend at this point, and is something that plenty of other developers have tried to replicate. To date, the folks at VideoLAN are the only ones to manage it, and they've done a particularly good job of it, too.
