India has banned VLC Media Player, however, this was done almost two months ago. No information on the ban has been made public by either the company or the Indian government.
The VideoLAN project’s VLC media player, one of the most widely used media player programs and streaming video servers, is prohibited in India. VLC Media Player was reportedly prohibited in India, according to a claim by MediaNama, however, this occurred about two months ago. However, it ought to still be operational if you have the program installed on your device. In the meantime, no information concerning the restriction was made public by either the corporation or the Indian government.
The country now forbids access to the VLC Media Player website and download links. Simply put, this indicates that nobody in the nation is able to use the platform for any kind of employment. Users that have the program loaded on their devices appear to experience this. VLC Media Player allegedly has a ban on all significant ISPs, including ACTFibernet, Jio, Vodafone-idea, and others.
Hundreds of Chinese apps, including PUBG Mobile, TikTok, Camscanner, and others, were outlawed by the Indian government in 2020. In fact, the newly withdrawn BGMI version of PUBG Mobile from the Google Play store and Apple App store has also lately been banned in India. The government decided to restrict these apps because it thought the platforms were transmitting user data to China. Notably, a Chinese corporation does not support VLC Media Player. It is created by the Paris-based company VideoLAN.
