Hi all,

We publish VLC Media Player to our users.  A new version came out and I'm seeing the following error in the publishing report:

VLC Media Player 3.0.21 (EXE-x64)

"A web error occurred while downloading the file: ConnectFailure Unable to connect to the remote server"

Is anyone else seeing this?


We have seen some customers geo-blocking different countries on the firewall. This is a common occurrence for this specific software. I'd check with your network team.
Depending on which mirror you hit https://www.videolan.org/videolan/mirrors.html, it may be blocked.

You could use the local content repository if you need to get it updated ASAP.

Hope this helps.


I'm the network team :)

We don't have geo-blocking enabled.  It has worked before.

I'll try the local repository.
