The VLC media player is now available for download in India. The multimedia player, which got banned earlier this year, is now back and people can again use it. The Indian Ministry of Electronics and IT has removed the ban on the website of the VLC media players.
The official website shows that around 73 million people have downloaded this player so far and more people are downloading it. The reason behind the ban is still unknown. There are chances that the ban could be a mistake, which the government has now removed.
In October this year, the VLC maker sent a legal notice to the Indian government, asking them to give reasoning on why its service was banned in India and that it should be given an opportunity to defend its case via a virtual hearing. It seems that the company was successful in proving its innocence and bringing back its service to India because the VLC media player is again available for download on the official website.
