If you are outside the US you probably stumbled across the “Unfortunately this video is not available in your country” – error message.
Solution: use a web proxy to access YouTube.
Browser extensions like ProxMate (for Chrome or Firefox, the install the YouTube package) or ZenMate (Chrome or Firefox).
Another Option: Web Proxies
Another reliable method is the following.
Just add “ss” inf front of youtube.com/…
Then click on the little video preview thumbnail on the right to watch the video (or choose one of the download options)
Download Youtube Video / Convert to MP3
- Use peggo.co and simply paste the youtube URL there.
Other Proxy Sites (simply copy and paste the video url into the proxy):
- hidemyass.com – solid option, but doesn’t let you skip inside the video
- proxy.org – lots of available proxy servers
- the bulletproof long term solution – use a VPN, as described here
