India’s numerous internet service providers (ISPs) have disabled access to VideoLAN’s website, which runs the well-known open-source media player VLC.
The programme continues to run on previously installed devices, and the VideoLAN website is still reachable through proxies. The Google Play Store and Apple App Store both provide the multimedia player for download. The official Twitter account for VideoLAN tweeted in response to the news, “If you are in India, please help us.” The platform responded to another tweet by stating that it has been forbidden in India from February 13th. VLC was prohibited in February of this year, at the same time as authorities prohibited 54 Chinese apps, including Garena Free Fire, according to several media reports.
