YouTube - This video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions

Ah, YouTube... the mandatory site for video on the internet.

Of course there are dozen other alternatives, like Vimeo, and Hulu... but I always hate when any of these sites told me that the content was not available in my country (Hulu in particular is nearly impossible to access without "hacks".)

Unfortunately... YouTube seems to be following the same path. The "land of the free" videos seems to be turning into an heavily policed state, and I get these messages more and more frequently:

"This video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions." - Go figure!?!

As if these things really worked at all (besides annoying us!) - you just need to use a service like  - or, in case they shut it down by the time you read this, google around for the working method at that time.

I really can't understand how a simple "home-video" can have these restrictions...

We hear everyone tell us we live in a single world, and that the internet bring us all together... and then they try and shove these ridiculous copyright restrictions down our throats...


  1. Or you could simply search it on other video search engine sites. This site seems to put them all together

  2. same here..
    I'm sick and tired of this message!
