How to Play Paramount Plus Video on VLC Media Player

The VLC media player is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player that has been popular for many years. It can play almost all multimedia files and offers rich format support, styling and customization options, making VLC media player a favorite of many video fanatics. At the same time, it provides users with more flexibility and format support than most other players, and it stays ahead of the curve in terms of features. However, the program cannot directly play streaming videos like those from Paramount Plus.
