However, the same VLC developer has confirmed that the current closed beta app will receive no further updates, threfore even beta users should switch to this branch.

Also, before downloading the app, you need to make sure that your Windows Phone 8.1 device meets the following requirements:

Music library
Photos library
SD card
Videos library

WVGA (480×800)
WXGA (768×1280)
