Watching YouTube videos blocked in your country
Note: this hub gives examples using YouTube on Tumblr in a Chrome browser on Windows 7. The presented solution should be applicable for any blocked media on any site, using any browser, on any OS.
You see an interesting video content on your Tumblr dashboard
However, when you try to view the video, it refuses to play in your geographical location
To get around this restriction, you'd have to (temporarily) hide your computer behind a proxy.
Go to hidemyass.com / IP:Port proxies and search for US proxies, using these parameters
You'd get results similar to these
Note the IP address of proxies with good speed and connection time (usually these would be at the top of the list)
Now go to your browser setting.
In chrome, press the 3 lines icon on the top of the screen
Find your computer Proxy settings
Press the LAN settings button
Choose the options as in this example, and enter the IP address that you noted above (from hidemyass.com) and 8080 for the port
Press OK , and the OK again.
Go back to the blocked tumblr and reload the page.
Congratulations - now you can view the video.
