The uploader has not made this video available message is a very common error to solve on YouTube. If you use YouTube regularly, you might have seen the This Video on YouTube is Not Available in Your Country message. It happens when you launch some particular videos from specific uploaders or channels. We have had this trouble with videos from BBC and Sony. We are not talking about geographic restrictions, however. This is something different. For easiness, we can call this YouTube Regional Filtering.
When you upload a video to YouTube, you have the option to restrict its availability to people from particular areas only. This means the uploader has not made this video available. For instance, a video may be available only in the United States and the United Kingdom. While this is the complete freedom of the uploader, it isn’t good if you miss some amazing content. Don’t worry. There are some effective ways to watch blocked YouTube video content. We have found two different methods to bypass YouTube Regional Filtering. You can use both of them, as per your convenience.
How to Watch YouTube Blocked Videos in Your Country – Method One
This is the easiest method to use. It does not require third-party software or system changes. Just follow the small actions. Open the blocked video in your favorite Web Browser. You have to change the URL now.
- Open the blocked video in your favorite Web Browser. You have to change the URL now.
- Suppose the following is the YouTube video URL: https://youtube.com/watch?v=Qw3Pp8xJATk
- You have to replace the second part of the video URL as shown below. The changed video URL will be: https://www.youtube.com/v/Qw3Pp8xJATk
In short, you are cutting down the ‘watch?’ tag from the video. This one is used by many people and is quite effective in the long run. This method is good enough when you don’t need downloads or VPN software to be used (And if you have decided to experiment then go with the trusted ones. Hide My IP, VyprVPN and ExpressVPN are what we suggest). So, the next time you come across YouTube Regional Blocking, just change the URL.
How to Download Restricted YouTube Videos – Method Two
The second method is very simple. You can download the YouTube video via a third-party service. There are websites like www.savefrom.net, which let you download YouTube videos and store them on your computer or smartphone or other locations.Since these services have corresponding servers in US.
Since these services have corresponding servers in US, UK and other places, the videos will be available. If it is okay for you to wait a bit, we recommend downloading the videos. Alternatively, you can use special tools for YouTube downloading.
You might have heard about Google Translate, which allows you to translate web page contents into another language. At the same time, Google Translate can work as a free proxy server. Instead of loading the videos directly, you can choose another method.
So, if you face the YouTube Regional Blocking, you can load the same page via Google Translate platform. It will be possible to watch the same content, without any issues, we assure. Even better, you can watch your favorite content with regional-language controls.
Well, these are the three methods you can use to watch YouTube blocked videos in your country. The third method wants you to use Google Translate but it’s no big deal, we suppose. However, we think the easiest method is to change the URL. We hope these methods help you to watch the content you really like – no matter where you are from.
