VLC Windows 8 app 1
You may recall some months back we reported on VLC’s kickstarter to raise $75,000 in an effort to create a free Metro Win8 App. The project has been behind schedule and we reported on their progress in June. In October the team finally got the video portion of the app working, but not the audio. Later they finished the audio implementation and submitted it for certification from Microsoft. Unfortunately, it was rejected by Microsoft due to audio crashing issue. VideoLan team is now working on to fix the audio related issue and they are expected to re-submit the app sometime next week.

Mean while, VideoLAN President Jean-Baptiste Kempf sent these screenshots to Neowin to show off their new UI they have been working on in the past weeks. As you can see, the UI looks almost similar to Zune Desktop.
