This beta is the first version targeting Windows 10 and running on the Universal Windows Platform, aka UWP.
Like the classic VLC, it supports a very large number of formats, but it also has a medialibrarytriaging audio and video media, a full player with subtitles, audio/video synchronisation, an audio mini-player and a network shares browser! We also support Cortana, Live Tiles, Pining and Continuum!
The only important missing feature is DVD/Bluray playback and TV tuners that are not yet possible through the UWP APIs.
And of course, it’s completely open source, available under the GPLv2.0 license!
You should try it now!
