VLC Media Player, by far the world’s most popular open source media player, will soon be coming to Windows 8. VideoLAN, the company behind VLC Media Player, announced recently that it has raised over $74,500 during its Kickstarter fundraiser event. VLC has over 100 million users world-wide!
“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.”
