How to Play Discovery Plus Video on VLC Media Player

The VLC media player is undoubtedly the most widely used video player in the world that plays a wide range of audio, images, and video files. It can play multimedia files directly on various platforms, including Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux, and extractable devices. With the VLC media player's easy-to-navigate interface, you can customize the control panel and style the program to your liking. Unfortunately, such an excellent media player can not read videos from streaming platforms like Discovery Plus, because Discovery Plus titles are encrypted in a proprietary format and can only be played through the Discovery Plus app.
