VideoLAN rilascia una prima versione Beta di VLC per l´UI Windows 8
VideoLAN ha annunciato il rilascio di una prima versione Beta compatibile con l´interfaccia Windows 8 del suo popolare player multimediale. Il software è frutto del progetto che gli sviluppatori hanno finanziato in crowdfunding su Kickstarter.

La Beta, disponibile sul Windows Store, supporta differenti formati tra cui anche MKV, Ogg, Mov, FLAC e MPC e offre il supporto audio in background, nonché a sistemi di archiviazione rimovibili e a server DLNA. Gli sviluppatori precisano che comunque, trattandosi di una versione Beta, può ancora essere afflitta da bug e avere problemi di stabilità.

Note di rilascio:

This application, version 0.2.0, is a BETA stage of the port of libVLC on WinRT. WinRT is the runtime of Windows 8/8.1 Metro/ModernUI, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox 1.

As this is a beta, some features are still not perfectly stable, but we are working on that. We thought we should share it with the users, so that people could test and help us.

This application:

works on Windows 8.0 and 8.1: too many people are still on 8.0, so we had to use that. This decreases the stability of the application, though...
is compiled for Intel x86 CPUs: Windows RT version will follow as soon as we are able to compile it. ARM version will also apply to Windows Phone.
plays all video and audio formats of VLC, including MKV, Ogg and Mov files or FLAC and MPC;
supports the same codecs as the VLC application for desktop, from MPEG-1 to H.265, through WMV3 and VC-1;
supports multiple-audio tracks selection;
supports embedded subtitles;
supports Background Audio playback;
features a easy-to-navigate but complete UI, notably for audio browsing;
supports Live Tiles!
supports removable storage and DLNA servers.

However, there are a few limitations:

This app is currently slow, and is slower than VLC for desktop for video decoding and has no hardware acceleration;
Subtitles support is not very good yet, and notably it only supports embedded subtitles; this is our major point of focus for now.
Audio does not seem to work in all configurations;
Playlists and streams are not supported in the UI (they are present in the core)
It´s clearly not as stable as it should be.

We are working on all those points, but notably on subtitles and audio quality and stability. Since we now have a release, it will be easier to do releases quite often, as soon as we can.

We also have longer terms goal to work on, and we´ll share them when we know more :)
We hope you like this application, and if you don´t, we´ll fix that soon :)
