Popular video sharing sites like Vimeo and DailyMotion were blocked in India last month following court orders.
It happened because some movies were illegally uploaded to these sites, the content owners filed a copyright infringement complaint and the Indian court ordered the ISPs to block the sites. Major Indian ISPs, including Airtel and Reliance, complied.
At the time of writing this, Airtel has restored access to the DailyMotion.com website but the videos hosted on Vimeo.com are still inaccessible to most users in India.
The Vimeo website itself is available but the sub-domain serving Vimeo’s video player (player.vimeo.ccom) has been blocked and thus the videos won’t play on your computer or mobile phone.
