Fans of the modern environment of Microsoft’s modern platform breathed a collective sigh of relief when VLC for Windows 8 landed on the Windows Store. It was long overdue.
Another port of the popular media playback application that has been even longer overdue is for the Windows Phone platform. And while we do know for a fact that such a project exists, that VideoLAN are deep into development of the mobile version, we are yet to see any visual hints.
Those of you waiting for the VLC player to show up on Windows Phone 8 will be pleased to see this first screenshot of the app posted here. And it is just how you would have envisioned it.
This first image provides us our first glimpse at the user interface and how VLC Player will look on Windows powered smartphones. And although we have no time estimates on when this app will land on the Windows Phone Store, it is shaping up to be real slick.
Having said that, there is every chance that VLC Player lands on Windows RT first, and only then will the developers launch the Windows Phone version.
Either way, let’s just hope we do not have too long of a wait.
