VideoLan, the developer of the popular VLC music and video player, has recently announced that the official VLC app for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, as well as Windows RT, Windows RT 8.1 users will get launched on 11 March in the Windows Store. That was yesterday. As it turns out, the app has been finally submitted for approval and is now just waiting the official certification from Microsoft. As you can see from yourself in the above screenshot, the app has been scheduled for release on March 11, since it was submitted on March 10.

My guess is that the certification process is taking so long because there have been so many rip-offs and clones bearing the “VLC” name, that the Windows Store team is having a hard time rejecting most of them. However, that’s not quite true with Flappy Bird clones. Videolan also confirmed on Twitter that the app is going to be free, just like on the other platforms. Once the app makes its way into the Windows Store officially, we will definitely be here to report that, so stay tuned.
