VLC Media Player (also known as VLC) is a portable, free and open source cross-platform media player and streaming media service. This application was developed by VideoLAN and the company just announced that it’s flagship media player is now available for Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 Mobile.

VLC is also available for Xbox One, HoloLens and Surface HUB, but there are some bugs which need to be fixed in the coming weeks. Once the update will be released, the VLC application will also run on Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.

The new application will come with all the features already available for Android and iOS, but will also contain a few more new features that will support features exclusive to Windows 10, such as Live Tiles, Continuum and Cortana.

VideoLAN assured us it’s currently working on an Xbox One version of the VLC universal application and it should be released sometime this summer, once the store is open to third-party UWP applications.

VLC was and continues to be one of the most used multimedia players in the wild. And since the developer decided to bring this application to Windows 10 as a universal application, we’re sure that there will be more and more people who will try it out. In other words, if your computer runs Windows 10 or your handset runs Windows 10 Mobile, you should definitely install the VLC application because it comes with the codecs needed to run all kinds of media files.

What are your thoughts about the VLC Universal Application now released for Windows 10 PC? Will you use it on your smartphone as well when it’s released for Windows 10 Mobile?
