How To Get YouTube When It's Blocked


Many schools and businesses use a firewall to block access to YouTube, making it difficult (but not impossible) to access

If your school or office firewall blocks access to YouTube you may be able to use a proxy service to get get around the firewalls and access any website you want.

The easy way: Try Firefox to get around the firewall

"Firefox has built-in proxy connection settings"

Download FireFox now 

Try the built-in proxy connection settings with an Anonymizer service to access YouTube at school or work when it's blocked

Firefox is not affected by many network restrictions that system administrators may automatically apply to Internet Explorer every time you use it. More importantly, Firefox has built-in proxy-connection settings, which when used with settings that you can get from an anonymous web surfing or anonymizer service, can allow you to get to virtually any website you want even if it is blocked by a firewall. Firefox has several other features such as Google-integration for faster searches, automatic pop-up blockers and more. Firefox is free.

Get to You-Tube from work or school, even through a firewall by using an Anonymizer or Private web surfing site

For years internet privacy experts have been using anonymizers, Proxies, private web-surfing services and other identity hiding software or services to get to websites privately.

 

These anonymizers and Anonymous web surfing services are usually used to hide your tracks while surfing the internet, making it impossible for anyone to trace what web-pages you have visited - but you can also use anonymizers and proxies to access YouTube and other websites at school or work that are blocked by a firewall. These anonymous web surfing services when used together with Firefox will usually let you get around any firewall. Most web-proxy services or anonymizers are not free, but many do offer partial service for free or a free trial period, which might work for you depending on what type of firewall your school uses. You may have to try a few different internet anonymous web surfing services or proxies to see which one works best with the firewall that your school or office has. Most of these services do not require you to install any software on the computer you're using at. You simply log into their website from work or school, then use the service to get to YouTube.com or whatever websites your school or business firewall is blocking. You can use these services with or without Firefox.

How an anonymizer gets around a firewall

An anonymizer or Private web-surfing service gets around your school's firewall by setting up a connection between your computer and the anonymizer service or proxy, so the firewall only sees the connection from you to them. The anonymizer's computers then connect to YouTube.com (or Hotmail, Myspace, etc) with their internet connection and send the data back to you. To the school's firewall it looks like your computer is connecting to the proxy's web address and not Youtube.com.

Some schools block proxys and anonymous web surfing sites, especially the free ones, so you may have to try a few to find one that works

The I.T. guys at your school or in your company's I.T. Department might be smart enough to configure their firewall to block the common proxys and private web-surfing websites and services right along with blocking YouTube.com. Lucky for you, there are LOTS of different internet-proxy and anonymizer services to choose from! You may have to experiment with different proxies until you find one that works with the firewall settings at your school or in your office at work.

There are no guarantees when they block YouTube.com

You might only have to try one or two different anonyimizers or web-proxy services before you can connect to YouTube.com from school. You might also try 50 and never find one that works if your school's firewall is really good. The only way to find it is to try. WARNING: The use of web-proxies or anonymizers to bypass firewalls might be against the rules at your school or place of employment. If using proxies is against the rules, use them at your own risk or don't use them at all!

The solution is quite simple.
1) go to work and do what they pay you to do, and follow the rules of using their computers and their network
2) AFter work, go home and use your own computer and your own internet connection to do whatever you want

Another option is to start your own business and allow your employees to goof off on the computer all day, sucking down your internet resources and putting your network, comptuers, and data at risk.

Also, there are cases when we need to use youtube for educational reasons instead of reading millions of text lines to understand processes that our employers didn't train us for. Oh, and if an employee wants to goof around, there are so many ways to do so without even opening a browser.

If the IT department is any good, you will never get onto Youtube or any other website's they've blocked. As mentioned you will either need to explain to them why you need to get onto Youtube and have them allow you, or, do what I do, bring in your smartphone and use it via your 3G/LTE data connection.

Re: How to get YouTube At Work When It's Blocked

So YOU decide that this rule does not apply to you. You then break the rule, let in some virus that wreaks havoc on the company network because you have no clue what you are doing, and/or just get caught breaking the rule that you declare does not apply to you. Are you then going to come back here asking where the best place is to find a new job?
YOU are what's wrong with this country.

First of all don't write in capital letters , it reveals your lack of manners. Second, I will tell you a secret and please keep it to yourself. The 'web' connects servers from all over the world, and .. Yes , this page is accessible by people who reside in other countries, therefore I have to say that ii don't live in your country. That automatically cancels your imbecile statement. My advice is to start looking for the person who is makes your country wrong , it will be an amazing job and this will keep you away from this blog. See ? I am not looking for a job in this forum , on the contrary, I gave you one! You are welcome.

1) Rules are made.
2) Some people decide they are above those rules and instead of working with the rule-makers to see the err of their ways, they decide they will do whatever they want and break said rules, regardless of the impact this may have on everyone else.
3) People listed in #2 care only about themselves and are A-holes.

No matter what you say, or how you attack me personally, you can't change this. But, it's not to late to change yourself.

Re: How To Get YouTube When It's Blocked

Found a solution by experimenting with deleting programs. Go to Control Panel or My computer depending software version and select Add Remove Programs and delete

Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Flash or any other Adobe program that
is related to video or email or word processing like programs.

I deleted Acrobat Reader and Adobe Flash and rebooted the PC, bear in mind I have
Windows XP Home. After reboot I can play videos and I reloaded my sound card program
and have sound and video. The good news is those programs are free @ Adobe.com so getting another copy is easy. The file must have been corrupted.

Also, with Acrobat Reader you can choose Uninstall and then choose Repair, that might work if you have data and don't want to back it up somehow. Good luck.

Re: How To Get YouTube When It's Blocked

WildWolfee here, I'm at home and got blocked by Youtube I think. CNN mentioned once
that youtube was accused of blocking people that used the service too much and those
who loaded videos criticizing youtube the company..... for spyware issue they resolved but like to pretend innocence over. You know how the corporate boyz are!

Any ideas on how I can regain access without using a proxy sever? I tried 5 pages worth of ideas from this thread but no luck except a cloaking site. Had luck with ninjaclok but prefer direct access for speed and less wasted time.

Also, been thinking about a partial WINXP reformat to reset part of my settings without doing a full reformat. Would that work? Maybe its time to upgrade to a newer operating system but this one works and the hackers ignore older versions.
Thanks. Stay strong!!
