VLC for Windows 8 gets Kickstarter funding

A Metro version of VLC, the popular free and open-source media player, is coming to Windows 8. The team’s Kickstarter project reached its funding goal of $76,000 from over 3,000 backers, reports The Next Web.

In a brief message on the Kickstarter page, the team simply stated, “Thank you” to all of their Kickstarter backers and added, “We’ll keep you posted about our developments very quickly!

The money from the Kickstarter campaign will be used to jump start development of the Windows 8 version of VLC. It should be ready for release in a few months time (about 3 months), rather than in a couple of years if the fund raising goal had not been achieved.

There are also plans to port it afterwards to Windows Phone 8.
