VLC just released a new update for its Xbox One Universal app. The update brings the app version to 2.1.1, and introduces a few new features and bug fixes.

This update mainly improves controls within the app. Perhaps the biggest highlight is the ability to fast forward using the Xbox Controller triggers. Here’s the complete changelog of the update:

  • “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”

As we said besides improving the app, and bringing the new features, the update also addressed some of the known issues and bugs in the app. Here’s exactly what has been fixed in the latest version of VLC app for Xbox One:

  • “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”

Since this is a Universal app, it contains identical features on both Windows 10 and Xbox One. So, users on these two platforms won’t notice any differences between the versions.

To download this update, simply head over to the Xbox Store, and check for updates. Or you can download and install the updated version directly from the Store.
