One of the post popular media players in the world has finally arrived on Windows 10, albeit in beta. The universal Windows 10 app of VideoLAN’s VLC media player has finally been released, the app won’t be limited to one platform as it’s compatible with all platforms that Windows 10 can be used on, that includes both PC and mobile, as well as the Xbox One and even Microsoft HoloLens.
The universal app is going to offer similar functionality across all platforms, that includes a full media player, media library, and a network browser.
It also taps into Windows 10 features like Cortana to work with voice commands, and has support for live tiles and Continuum when a Windows 10 Mobile powered smartphone is docked.
VideoLAN has also said that the app will get support for Microsoft HoloLens in the future, support for the Xbox One is promised to arrive over the summer. The features and interface will remain the same even if the app is being used on the console or the augmented reality headset.
Bear in mind that the VLC app for Windows 10 is in beta right now so there are likely to be some kinks here and there, but work on the app continues and it will be improved in the coming months as a stable release is finally pushed out.
