How To Watch Blocked YouTube Videos Not Available In Your Region?

If your favorite video got blocked in your country, here's what you can do to access them.

YouTube is a billion-dollar company whose content is streamed all around the globe. It is highly preferred for entertainment and educational content sharing. A cook from Kenya can see and learn the famous dishes of Paris with just one click. It even has a version that is only for kids, so that parents can stay worried free while leaving their phones with a small child. Even though it has many videos, some videos are not available in many countries due to censorship in that country or licensing reasons. In this article, we’ll talk about how you can unblock those videos.

How to Unblock Youtube Videos?


The simplest solution for watching a video that is blocked in your country is to change your location. Not physically but digitally, for that, you can use two prominent methods, which are Proxy servers and VPNs.

Proxy Servers

These servers replace your IP Internet Protocol address with the one they have created. It becomes the first party in the place of the sender, which is you. To put it simply it shows your changed data on the requested site and lets you hide your actual location as well as yourself.

There are many free proxy servers that you can find just by searching on google. Some charge money while some are free of cost, at least to some extent. Even businesses use proxy servers to keep themselves safe from internet threats.


A virtual Private Network is exactly what it sounds like, it’s a private virtual network that you create to hide your identity from your Internet Service provider and other parties. There are three types of VPN; SSL, site-to-site, and client-to-server. They come as extensions, apps, and software. Many famous antivirus companies like Kaspersky and McAfee provide VPN in some of their Packages too.

These methods are usually successful in unblocking videos on YouTube. But, it is important to keep in mind that some videos are blocked by the government due to sensitivity or any other reasons. So it is better to avoid those sections.
