A must have multi-use app/program for Win10

It's still the same VLC Media Player which I can use as a default to watch and listen all of my different files, but now it works with continuum, makes my PC into a fresh living room media centre and it supports a lot of cloud and synchronizing services. ¡Perfecto!

Not the real VLC

When I say that, I don't exactly mean it's a fake. This edition of VLC, however, lacks almost ALL of the functionality I use in the desktop edition. It can't open many broken versions of files which the desktop version can open flawlessly. Streaming is bugged. No aspect ratio, hotkeys, speed, vol. booster... I appreciate that you attempted to post this on the Windows store, but sadly, it isn't quite ready to get my favor.

Pretty, but needs improvement

The interface is beautiful. But no repeat or shuffle options for video? No Windows Explorer thumbnails for .webm? Music that stops playing when the app is minimized? A weird bug that causes "<-" in Player Settings to show the "home" tab content while still acting as if "videos" is selected? This app is a great start. But it needs a bit more work.

no video repeat.

there is no option to play the video on repeat. when the video is over, it just goes to some worthless homescreen

LOVE the look

I think that, for music at least, this is the best interface since the Zune. I know people make fun of the Zune but I'm not kidding - the Windows player was great looking. I've had this crash when trying to play a video, and I wish I could easily sync my music playlists but overall I really love it.

Network Shares

It seems to work very well with local music but does not function well over a share. We share our music on one PC over our network. I added our library to the Music Folders and list them all under Unknown Artist. When trying to play as a test it says Sorry unable to read file. This makes this App pretty much unusable to us. It looks like it has some nice features that I would love to try out.

Almost there

A beautiful and versatile player! However, not at feature rich as desktop app (Win32) version. Also, music playback stops when app is minimized. Else pretty good an app to use!

Pretty good

VLC for *cough* Metro is overall a nice media player. It's fast and fluid to use, not to mention beautiful. I do feel like there's a lot of wasted space, though. And shuffle mode doesn't seem to do anything. It's a work in progress but I'm sure it will continue to get better.

Version notes

In this update, we enabled TagLib, worked on the hardware decoding and several awesome features. The user interface has been updated to match the Windows 10 design, and hundreds of bugs are fixed.
