The Redmond-based company will help developers port VLC on Windows 8
“We've been in touch with Microsoft representatives, who are thrilled about our endeavor and ready to collaborate with us. They are looking into ways of supporting us directly through non-financial matters, notably hardware, technical and design help. This is great news,” the VLC developers said.
There’s still no release date for the official VLC for Windows 8 app, but according to initial reports, the new tool should be released in early 2013.
