How to Watch YouTube Videos without Restrictions

18 May 2015

Sometimes when you are going to watch a video on YouTube, it shows you error like, “The uploader has not made this video available in your country”. This error is shown because the uploader of the video has made access to the video in particular country only. YouTube determines your location by your IP address and if your IP address is out of that particular geographic region, YouTube shows an error.

For example, BBC’s content is only available to UK residents, while US cable channels are only available online if you’re in the US. Many music videos for major label artists on YouTube, as well as many videos containing background music, have been unavailable in Germany since the end of March 2009. YouTube is not accessible from China, Iran and other countries. In some countries YouTube is completely blocked, either through a long term standing ban. The universities, schools, government agencies and other private companies often block social media websites, including YouTube, due to bandwidth limitations and the site’s inevitable potential for distraction.

Earlier, you could adjust the YouTube URL to overcome regional restrictions. Since that no longer works, we’ve put a list that makes it possible to bypass YouTube GEO-restrictions.

  1. Proxy servers
    Proxies are able to bypass geo-restrictions and censorship. Proxy replaces your IP address by IP address of proxy server. Unfortunately, public proxy servers are not reliable and slow. Besides that, they have bandwidth restrictions.
  2. Tor
    The Tor network is a group of volunteer-operated servers that allows users to improve their security and identity on the web. Unfortunately, Tor is not the best way to stream video content. The reason - data is routed through a lot of relays.
  3. Chrome and Firefox Extensions
    The most chrome and Firefox extensions to hide your real IP address are based on the switch of public proxies. The main disadvantage of the public proxy is still the same – slow speed, proxy’s life is too short.
  4. VPN
    VPN creates a tunnel in the internet between user and website. All data requests are encrypted though the tunnel. It secures your computer’s internet connection to guarantee that all of the data you’re sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes. Comparing to the proxy VPN allows users to access internet in 100% anonymous way.
