VLC for Windows 8 beta was released in the Windows Store last week. The initial release had number of bugs including one that crash the app on startup. An update to fix this issue along with improving the stability of the app is now available for download from Windows Store. President of VideoLan Jean-Baptise Kempf gave us an update on his blog:
After the first beta release a couple of days ago, a second build fixing the most important crashes has been submitted to the store, for certification.
It should notably fix the crash on start, on some machines, but other stability issues, on the music side too!
We’d like to thank the new contributors that helped.
It should appear automagically in a few hours on the store.
Next release, next week!
