VLC Media Player comes to Windows Store for Xbox One
We have some exhilarating news for Xbox One owners. In a tweet by Hugo Beauzée-Luyssen, a developer at VideoLAN, it is confirmed the VLC app is submitted for certification approval on the Windows Store and will be available to Xbox One users soon.
As far as we know, consumers are going to be delighted by this latest release and they have Microsoft’s Universal Platform to thank for it. If approved by Xbox One’s UWP, this newly introduced venture will certainly be appreciated.
Earlier this year, we informed users of VideoLAN introducing its UWP app for Windows 10 devices, with support for Surface Hub and the HoloLens announced at a later date. The fully functional, multi-featured UWP app is available on iOS, Android and a few other platforms. Another plus is the support for Cortana as well as Continuum on Windows 10 Mobile.
The VLC UWP app sports a vast media library that enables subtitle support on video players and enables users to manage video settings as well. The app features a dark mode and a PiP mode to browse through your library whilst playing a video.
Right now, Xbox users have the Plex app for media browsing and streaming on their Xbox One consoles but if the VLC app is successful on the platform, users will have the benefit of UPnP support and network share browsing, HTTPS and adaptive streaming support, several codecs, hardware decoding and support for a number of media file formats, which makes it a perfect choice for wide-screen displays such as an Xbox One connected to your LED screen.
Though no visuals of the app have yet been released yet, you can go through the desktop version of the app to get a preview of what the Xbox One app might look like.
