    Hi,

    The built-in music+video app in Win 8 mobile does not play a number of formats including .flv It doesn't even show the video files of .webm even when the files show up in the memory card.

    Please recommend a good app for Windows 8 mobile which can play at least .webm I can't find any in the store.

    Unfortunately I can only find Yxplayer WP8 which has poor reviews. Your best hope is to wait for VLC to come out for WP8 or try getting your videos in a supported format.

    With the first beta of VLC for Windows 8 released, Neowin had an interview with the VideoLAN President. Here's a couple questions you would be interested in:

    From what I've read, VLC will support Windows Phone 8.1 and above.

    Excellent news. Finally a concrete assurance. I can't wait to use VLC instead of the stupid and useless built-in xbox music player.
