Kickstarter for vlc is almost over, they had a goal of $40,000 and have reached it but anything over it will go to wp8, so if you haven't donated already donate now before it's over. They will release vlc for wp8 eventually but with donations they'll be able to do it sooner rather then later. VLC for the new Windows 8 User Experience ("Metro") by VideoLAN Updates — Kickstarter
