Great app, but...

The interface is pretty, but when the music starts playing, the whole app's interface just turns into a blank white background, which is weird... THE MOST IMPORTANT issue is that when app minimizes, the music stops playing! And for tablets like Surface 3, when I turn the screen off, it is expected that the app should continue to play music, but it doesn't. This needs to be fixed... Thanks for all the hard work on this uwp app!

Has a really nice interface , but its still incomplete

just wide live tile works (Medium and large ones doesn't work at all) and does not support all of the formats (for example .VOB)

Love VLC but this is sadly not the same version.

I love VLC but this version isn't great. I can play some files but now it won't play DVD files. I keep getting prompted to look for a DVD player. I prefer the older VLC Desktop version much more.

DVDs and Blu Rays

App should be more user friendly and easier to play Blu ray and DVD disks if your drive supports it. ( like the desktop app

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!

VLC is great but....

I have used VLC for a very long time and this app is great. However there is one rather large problem, the status bar at the top of the screen is never hidden. This means that while watching a movie there will always be a white bar at the top of the screen. Until this is fixed I'm going to use something other than VLC.

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.
