VideoLAN, the organization behind the popular VLC video player, has announced that it’s reached its Kickstarter goal of £40,000 for its Windows 8 port, “This evening, we crossed our goal of £40,000. Thanks again for your generous support and for allowing us to realize our project!”
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.
