    Hello. I've just got a new Surface 2, I haven't tried playing any videos yet, but does anyone know of any programs or apps like VLC player which we can download onto my Surface 2 to play most video formats?

    VLC is coming to Windows RT in the near future, but in the mean time I have found a few players that work. I'm using this one myself ( PressPlay Video app for Windows in the Windows Store ), though I can't say if there's anything better out there as I haven't looked in a long time

    Cool!, nothing really beats VLC when it comes to playing videos.

    I recently started using Yxplayer. I forgot if it was Pro or what.
    it is damn expensive though ($6.99 on RT and $8.99 on normal Windows 8). but I couldn't wait any longer for vlc... and converting bunch of videos is just a pain.

    I have a lot of rmvb and mkv videos, so Yxplayer works better for me than PressPlay. but PressPlay is free, I use it regularly too :)

    I'd just wait on vlc. They're almost done with the RT version. They would be done and the app would've been submitted but Microsoft changed the APIs so they're still working on it.
