VideoLAN launches Kickstarter for VLC Metro app [Video]

VLC has long been known as the media player that can play anything. The developers of VLC have just launched a Kickstarter in order to create a Windows 8 metro VLC app which should help with media concerns like we’ve seen in our forums here. I’ve always enjoyed the experience I’ve had with VLC when it comes to media formats so this is something I’m happy to see. With Windows 8 having cut media center out of the default experience, VLC is very poised to become one of the best alternatives for playing media, specifically in the metro interface.
