They also explain that any extra money will be plowed into the project, allowing them to greatly speed up the process of also bringing VLC to Windows Phone 8 as it will “allow us to parallelize the workload of the ports to Windows 8 / RT and Phone”. They also intend to add some new features after the initial release is done and money is left, such as camera input support; DLNA client and server integration; integration with locally attached devices for media playback and synchronization and Smartglass support.
