The VideoLan team is close to concluding their KickStarter round of funding, with only 17 hours left.
After reaching their Â£40,000 goal 5 days ago, any additional money raised is targeted at speeding the release of VLC for Windows Phone 8, which means if you have not contributed already and want VLC on your Windows Phone sooner rather than later now is the time to do so.
In their latest update the VLC team writes:
We have come a long way and we are finally there. It’s 24 hours to go for our Kickstarter campaign. So far, more than Â£45,000 were pledged by almost 3000 backers.
This is a tremendous success and we are very pleased about it. Thanks so much!
In the last week, we’ve prepared our project management tools, collected hardware and software needs for the developers who will work on VLC for Windows 8, RT and Phone and set up our major development milestones. We will start right-away as soon as the campaign is over.
Our fulfilment team is set up, too, so we can ship all the goodies on time. Thanks again and you’ll hear back from shortly!
Jean-Baptiste & Felix for the VLC for Windows 8 team.
