VLC turns to Kickstarter to fund Windows 8 app

Quite a lot of surprising projects are turning up on crowdfunding websites these days. One of the latest examples is that VideoLAN is seeking £40,000 on Kickstarter to fund development of a VLC app for Windows 8's new user interface. Depending on how much money they pledge, backers also receive special perks such as being on the sponsor list, a VLC t-shirt, a mug, a banner on the VLC website, etc.
This project’s goal is a fully featured port of VLC media player to the new Windows 8 User Experience. A second release will also add support for Microsoft’s Surface tablets.

VLC media player for Windows is currently installed on about 100,000,000 devices worldwide. The existing version runs on Windows 8’s desktop mode, and is available only for Intel-based PCs. This new port will be natively integrated within the new User Experience and will also support ARM-based tablets in a subsequent release

Similar to the desktop version of VLC media player, you will be able to play all files, all your discs and all your network streams. All of that in a native, beautiful and easy-to-use interface.

In contrast to the built-in media player, VLC for Windows 8 we intend to add support for DVDs and VCDs out-of-the box as well as unencrypted Blu-Rays. All the features known from our current releases will be retained like a full fledged equalizer, video filters and superior support for subtitles.
