The popular VLC media player app recently made its way to Xbox One via the Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform. That was good news for Xbox One owners, even if the app is in a relatively early stage. Now, there’s an update available that fixes a few issues and enhances the app’s controls.

Windows Central was kind enough to post the details of what’s been updated in Version 2.1.1 of the app (via MSPU) and here it is:

  • Added fast seek using gamepad triggers
  • B will now close the playback overlay when it’s displayed
  • Fix default control panel button focus
  • Improved media discovering performances
  • Fixed tab colors
  • General performance improvement
  • Fix crash when browsing password protected network drives
  • Fix mixed up channels when playing 5.1/7.1
  • Fix too long media discovery
  • Fix wrong external drive being browsed when 2 or more drives are plugged in
  • Fix various hardware acceleration bugs
  • Fix crash when displaying teletext subtitles
  • Fix inconsistent background audio behavior
  • Fix duplicated display of network drives

The update might not show up for you immediately, and so be patient. Let us know in the comments when you get the newest version, and what you think.
