Screenshots of the upcoming redesigned VLC Player for Windows 8.1 devices were revealed recently. As you can see below, this is a complete revamp of the current design. I think it looks neat and simple, and I hope it perform well too.
The new design divides the app in two panes, the left one has navigation options for videos, music, and others and when you tap any of those, the corresponding content is displayed on the right. The navigation pane on the left shrinks automatically into icons when you snap the app to the sides.
