How to Play Paramount Plus Video on VLC Media Player

People love VLC, as it has become the go-to media player for many due to its ability to play various media formats seamlessly. However, some media files, such as Paramount Plus downloads, are encrypted and can only be opened within the official apps or websites provided by the content provider.

This not only allows users to enjoy their favorite shows and movies on their preferred media player but also provides the freedom to watch content offline without limitations.
