Porting my favourite Apps to Windows Phone (E.g. VLC)?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I would really like to port some of my favourite apps to Windows phone and WIndows 8 Metro GUI.

    First of all, I really need a media player to play OGG files. I would therefore like to port the VLC player to Windows Phone 7/8.

    There are far more pretty usable GPL-Apps, and due to the license the source is free to use and can be modified (as long it is released open again), which is great and I guess a very good point to start.

    By now, I do not have that much experience in programming for microsoft. I have, however, ported some apps to the Nokia N900 and Nokia N9, which was basically not much more than a recompilation of the sourcecode for the target. I also have some experience in Qt and I think it's the toolkit of choice when it comes to portability between platforms.

    I know that Qt for Android is in the works, and of course it is supported on all Nokia platforms. Is there a Windows Phone port already as well?
