Studio developers VideoLAN, which publishes educational and popular video player VLC, has decided on the blacklisting smartphones Huawei. This is stated on the official page of team Twitter. From now on, the owners of vehicles of the Chinese manufacturer will not be able to install the app from Google Play.
The reason for the introduction of Huawei smartphones in black list are the peculiarities of the firmware EMUI, which prevents backgrounding most applications, except those that have been developed by the vendor. Such a policy, put it in VideoLAN, provides users a negative impression about the product by discrediting him.

Another thing is that achieving goals such methods directly contradict the legislation of many European countries and can arouse the interest of the competent authorities.
