Fortunately, there are ways to bypass YouTube’s territorial filter and thus be able to watch any video on YouTube even if it is blocked in your country. Keep reading to discover how.
Method 1: Use a VPN connection
The easiest way to dodge YouTube’s territorial filter is to use a VPN connection. This type of connection will let you change your IP address to be able to connect from the server of any country you choose.
This means that, for example, if you are in Venezuela, but you need to see content that is available in the United States, you can choose a server from this country so that the machines think you are physically in the US.
However, if you are somewhat more demanding in terms of the requirements that a VPN should have, you should know that you have the option to subscribe to a paid VPN that, obviously, will have extra tools and functions.
Method 2: Use a proxy server
If you do not want to use a VPN connection, then your best option is a proxy server. This function is similar to using a VPN because you can connect as if you were in a different country.
However, this option is less secure and does not encrypt your browsing, so we usually always recommend using a VPN instead of a proxy.
As with VPNs, there are free proxy servers, but their services are often much more limited than paid version, so it may be worth paying a subscription.
Normally, the server is accessed through an extension of a web browser. You will have to make sure to choose a country that you know that does have access to the content you are trying to see.
Method 3: Download the YouTube video
If all this fails, you can try downloading the YouTube video to be able to completely avoid the imposed territorial restriction.
https://qdownloader. net and https://y2mate. com are two of the YouTube Downloaders.
Keep in mind that, although it is not illegal to download YouTube videos, it is against the conditions of use. It is somehow “immoral” since you are shying away from ads that help fund the site and its content.
