    I have a 520 and yes the app doesn't fully work.
    I wasn't trying to bash the 520, I just wanted to cite a possible scenario and the 520 was the first 512 RAM device that came to mind. I don't even know what the problem with the app is, I just feel for the guy who's trying to do something most of us can't and some entitled little crust of a man did him wrong like that.

    I know you weren't bashing the 520 lol. If it wasn't compatible it would say in the store.
    Your so right though. Some of the comments made me sick to read. We all should be thankful VideoLabs are making a player for our platform.
    Some people scream "windows phone os has no apps" and when a huge media player such as VLC are being developed and tested they are complaining. Its people like them that will make devs just stop making apps for our OS.

    On Android there's a different trend: sarcastic comments. Things like 1 star and then "OMG, this app just saved my life. I was near an abyss and by installing this app, the Lord our Saviour made His light shine upon me".

    I mean, they're hilarious, but still, equally useless.

    Here's some hilarious examples out of the reviews for that REALLY useful app called "Yo" - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.justyo&hl=en

    5 Stars - "Life changer I couldn't move on after breaking up with my ex. I missed her a lot. But I got this app and yo, after just a day of yoing her she called the police and got me a restraint order. Now I will finally be able to move on, I'm being forced to."

    5 Stars - "Excellent use for a drab app!! I found a use for Yo!!! I now get the alerts about the missles going into Israel. As soon as I added REDALERTISRAEL to my contacts, I received two alerts! Nice!"

    5 Stars - "How did I ever communicate before this. Idk"

    5 Stars - "Absolute game changer I was standing on a corner at midnight trying to get my courage up. There was a long lovely dancer at a little club downtown, I loved to watch her do her stuff. Through those long lonely nights she filled my sleep, her body softly swaying to that smokey beat, so I yo'ed her. Let me tell you, she was interested, but I don't kiss and tell so enough with that. Yo is a life saver. Could Yo have saved Abraham Lincoln? That's for history to decide. I just accidentally sold my first born child using Yo. I Yo you."


    And from VLC - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tav7neon&hl=en

    1 Star - "Im new for this application Thanks"

    1 Star - "Stop development Utter crap app"

    2 Stars - "Hey"

    2 Stars - "Nice"


    Well...at least the guy in the WP store was complaining for a somewhat valid reason (VLC took forever between taking people's money and releasing a simple Beta).
    You should take a look at Samsung push service lol. Those are even more hilarious

    Generalization of behavior of Android or WP users makes no sense to me. I used to have an Android device for 2 years before switching to WP, but I didn't change personality because of it. The mentioned comment on VLC app is stupid and ignorant, and doesn't deserve this much fuss...

    Interesting to me that I became part of a "community", of "jerks" no less, because I bought a new phone.

    Had I known that I was getting married to all other WP users when I bought my phone, I might have dated first, or at least checked their references.

    A lot more went into my platform switch than I realized. I thought I was just doing it because it integrated better with my Surface Pro, my work applications, and I like the look and feel.

    I am not a developer but one thing I know that VLC team done some mistake.

    VLC is one of most anticipated app and what team was doing for last two years that they keep spreading rumor or whatever info that we are developing VLC app, " it's coming soon" or whatever. Many users are patiently waiting for it and what they develop after two years is an alpha app.

    So, understand this VLC team was the first one who are being jerks making users wait this long for an unfinished app.
    If they silently developed app their wouldn't be a problem.

    Look at Opera team.
    They simply developed app Opera Mini.
    It's nothing better but still their are no problem for them.

    I am not saying that those users are right but VLC Team getting response for what they were doing for past 2 years.

    So you're saying they're jerks because after 2 years all they give you is an alpha. Well did you reach out to them to offer assistance since they obviously don't know what they're doing? How many other developers have released an equivalent or are working on one? How's that working out? Here's a tip: neither you or anybody else is entitled to anything. Either you wait for someone to do it for you and graciously accept their efforts OR you roll up your sleeves and do it yourself.

    THey are getting what what they deserve.(what users think they deserve) It's a response for VLC team drama that they were doing for last two years.


    It's not like users have some kind of grude against them.
    They have done some mistake that is why they are getting this type of response.
    Have you ever give a thought that
    Why not users talk bad about Moli Player? Why VLC?

    Dude, everybody makes mistakes. I make so many everyday it hurts sometimes. But that's how I've reached the level of success I have. What you call drama, an entrepreneur calls confidence. When you're pushing to be the best you sometimes make statements that are borne of chutzpah and can land some serious egg on your face. I applaud those who don't settle for the safe side of the street, we all should. Those of us who are fans of WP have to wake up to the fact that we're in third place and very far from 2nd with the 4th place guy nipping at our heels. Want to whine and complain? Don't go crying when all the devs leave.

    Clearly the VLC developers aren't as good as you. They're whining because they received a one star review for a objectively awful job.

    App development is not charity, these guys got payed to develop the apps.

    Even if I do not tolerate such comments, VLC Developers are proving themself a bunch of silly kids if they write something like "we won't devel for a community of offenders" after an episode like this. There is no such thing like "a community of offenders" : no rational person could ever think there is any form or relation between different people using a WP device. The same moron writing such a comment could have been using Android and doing the very same.

    There is no frustation here, I don't care about VLC. Yet, VLC for WP sucks and this truth could make any vulgar user react like that any time on any platform.

    I think we should NOT make a fuss about this stupid story.

    Maybe the reviewer contributed in the kickstarter.
    Since when calling someone by name is an insult? Or maybe the problem is the word "Slow"..but I'd say It represent quite well the reality of the situation

    To me this thread so wrong. The VLC developers should be apologizing for their awful job, asking humbly for more patience, or returning the money.

    I always read lines like "I don't bother apps" "Apps aren't my priority ".
    So what now?

    Their are tons of apps in WP store which have negative comments. Even official MS have more negative comments than VLC.
    No one bother with them so why only VLC?
    What so special about them?
    Are they more important than other devs?

    Second thing users are saying truth. Vlc isn't good right now and they are very slow.
    So, users are just saying what they feel about it. Is it wrong?
    What you want with them commenting sweet lies?

    It's a small thing, happening everywhere. Just get it over and move on

    I'm not surprised at the lack of class displayed by WP users considering how this community has become full of whiners and trolls that cry about anything and everything. It was only a matter of time before it spilled out elsewhere. Someone else put it best when he said this place is now "Whiners (Phone) Central"

    I think someone needs to write an article on the main site teaching some of these knuckleheads about what alpha and beta versions are.

    Funny how my windows phone user experience improved greatly after I stopped reading the forums on a regular basis.

    I hate this thread soo much. There's whiners everywhere, whiners come out on forum sites, there's nothing anybody can do about it. But the response from VideoLAN is pathetic. Every ecosystem is going to find crappy reviews, especially an ecosystem that you ask for money from and put out a subpar app for. It was going to happen, they don't need to stoop down as low as a single commented.

    Thank you, lemming, for proving that it's easier to follow than lead. Everyone is a jerk, so you might as well be too, and the rest of us should just get over it.

    I can understand that. The forums and comments on Windows Central would make you think that Windows Phone is doomed, lol. They'd make you think that it's lower than 0.5% the way everyone talks.

    Too true as I've said before it was a private beta leaked it was never meant to be made public until all the kinks were worked out. I think the person who leaked this should be held responsible for it. Its after causing a bad smear campaign against VideoLabs and Windows Phone.
