Good news VLC users, it looks like VLC’s Kickstarter campaign was a success with only a few days left, which means that those looking for native VLC support on their Windows 8, Windows RT or Windows Phone 8 devices, well that looks like it will be definite possibility although at this point it is unclear as to when the software will be released, although they did announce that development for it will kick off in 2013. The folks at VLC have also come up with several new ideas that they hope to incorporate into their software once the initial release has been made, such as:
- camera input support — This allows you to record anything your connected cameras can see and to stream it live where ever you like.
- DLNA client and server integration — Play media stored on DLNA capable servers on your Windows RT tablet or Windows Phone — Stream everything VLC can play on your tablet or Windows 8 PC to your DLNA capable devices (Xbox, …).
- integration with locally attached devices for media playback and synchronization
- Smartglass support
Sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it? In any case we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information regarding the application, so check back with us from time to time as we will keep you updated on its progress.
