VLC media player coming to Xbox One

Microsoft regional director Thomas Nigro recently announced that VLC is being ported to the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

This means the media player will run on Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox One, Windows 10 IoT, and Hololens.

The VLC for Windows team will also release the last update for Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows RT in May. After that, they are dropping support for Windows 8.

A public beta for the Windows 10 Mobile version of VLC will be available next week, with an official release scheduled for May.

The plan is to launch VLC on Xbox One between May-September, when Microsoft will allow developers to publish UWP apps on Xbox.
