There is an updated version of VLC for Windows 8.1 in the Windows Store. This update just has bug fixes and decoding speed improvements, the last update has major changes to the app with an all new UI and new features. The app will play a wide range of video formats including MVK and is well worth installing on a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 device. The app is free from the Windows Store, there is still no ARM version available but it is in development.
In this update, we rewrote most of the application to be ported to 8.1.
This update should improve a lot the decoding speed.
This should also fix numerous bugs and crashes.
Remember, this is still a beta version…
