India has outlawed VLC Media Player and closed its website and download link


 The VideoLAN project's VLC media player, one of the most widely used media player programmes 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 programme installed on your device. In the meantime, no information concerning the restriction was made public by either the corporation or the Indian government.

Update: In response to India Today Tech, VLC Media Player stated that the ban was implemented on February 13.

The corporation and the Indian government did not formally announce the banning of the media platform because it was only a soft restriction. The limitations of Twitter are still being discovered by some users. A screenshot of the VLC website showing "the website has been prohibited as per order Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology under IT Act, 2000" was tweeted by a user going by the name of Gagandeep Sapra.
