We have been waiting for quite a while now for the official VLC app to make its way into the Windows Store for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT users. Now, it seems that the team is closer than ever to finally releasing it as a Windows 8.1 app

VideoLAN, the developer of VLC, is getting closer and closer to finally releasing an official VLC app for Windows 8 users. Almost a year ago, VideoLAN started a KickStarter project and managed to raise more than $75,000 for the development of an official Windows Store VLC app. The long wait is mainly due to “forbidden calls” in the program.

But now it seems that the VideoLAN developers have overcome and the final moment is nearing. The team has recently tweeted that VLC for Windows 8 now has audio output. The VLC app for Windows 8 has already passed the Windows App Certification Kit back in September, so any moment now we could see it in the Windows Store.

The VideoLAN team also replied to someone asking on Twitter that they are going to release an official VLC app for Windows Phone 8 users, as well. There is a chance that the company could launch them in the same time.
