Home » VLC now available to download on Windows Store for Xbox One

Not too long ago, we anticipated the expected arrival of VLC for Xbox One and the day has finally come: Microsoft launched the app today on Windows Store for Xbox One owners. The open source media app made its way from Windows 10 desktop PCs to mobile and now to the popular gaming console.

As the VLC Media Player is a Universal Windows App, its features are akin to the Windows 10 app for desktop or mobile. Though the app is up for download now, a developer of the app took to Reddit to inform the users about the beta test of the app which is still in progress. Even though it isn’t a finished product, they felt it was “important enough to have a version out”. Having said this, developers are opting to be fully cooperative and accept constructive criticism with open arms and are asking users to report any issues and bugs they might face on their bug tracker.

VLC still lacks support for DVD and Blu-Ray though it fully supports a wide-range of image and video file types. Also, it is essential for users to remember that this isn’t the full-fledged VLC Win32 app, so we would advise users to not get their expectation a little too high.

As for the UWP, VLC includes:

  • video player

  • audio player

  • audio management

  • MKV playback

  • FLAC playback

  • subtitles downloader

  • subtitles

  • audio

Apart from downloading the app from Windows Store, users can also visit the link from their browser Microsoft Edge to get it.
