VLC Media Player banned in India

One of the world's most popular media players across multiple platforms, VLC Media Player is reportedly being banned in the country.

The VLC Media Player website no longer works in India and users cannot download the program's exe file for installation anymore.

Interestingly, VLC Media Player is still available on the Google Play Store.

If you already have VLC Media player installed on your device, phone or PC, you should still be able to run the program no issues.

Neither VLC Media Player nor the government has revealed why the media player was taken down.
