VLC Media Player BAN In India, No Clarity Yet On Reason

Multiple internet service providers (ISPs) in India have blocked access to the website of VideoLAN, the popular open source software VLC media player.

the VideoLAN website is still accessible via proxy websites, and the application continues to run on already installed devices. The multimedia player is also available for download on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Responding to the news, VideoLAN’s Twitter handle tweeted, “If you are in India, please help us.”

Replying to another tweet, the website announced that it has been banned in India since February 13. according to many sources, the ban on VLC was placed at the same time as authorities banned 54 Chinese applications, including Garena Free Fire, in February this year, according to several media reports.

No official announcement has been made by the government in this regard....

VLC is a France-based open source software which allows anyone in the public domain to make changes to the player’s code. 

The hack was uncovered in April and was targeted at various government agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in at least three continents.

The government informed the Parliament last week that it has so far blocked 348 apps for allegedly collecting user information and transmitting it across the border in an unauthorised manner.
