VLC for Windows 8
VLC for Windows 8 encountered various difficulties at the beginning of development, first raising money, and then being unable to go online because of a partial symbols conflict with the Windows store.
But obviously the problem has been solved, and the current development team works with the MINGW-W64 project and the GCC developers, and deletes nearly 90% of the symbols that Windows store forbids to use.
It is understood that VLC for Windows 8 has the same functionality as the Desktop edition, so the versatile WIN8 application is well worth looking forward to.
