If you are looking for a quality media player on Windows, look no further than VLC. The player works with a wide range of media and is generally regarded as the standard for all other media players to be judged against.
The team behind the app has announced today that VLC is now out for Windows 8.1 and you can grab the latest bits by hitting the download link at the bottom of this post.
For clarity, at this time, the download link is the same as the Windows 8 version and do know that if you have a prior version of the modern app installed, you should remove it before you update.
VLC is the type of application that Microsoft needs in its stores to help boost its credibility. While the company has started to crackdown on fake apps, there is still work to be done but at least they are finally starting to do something.
