I was a big fan of a TV series and used to watch the videos of that series on YouTube even after the series ended but something went wrong and those videos were blocked totally in my country, I was sad about getting it banned but not because of the thought that I won’t be able to watch those videos on YouTube again as I knew how to unblock YouTube and watch blocked videos on it. Want to get your YouTube unblocked too? Keep reading.
Same thing might be happening with you, either your favorite YouTube video is banned in your country or most of the time you’re at a place where YouTube is banned like the organization you work in. Not to worry because you can bypass it easily and gain access to those videos again.
I’ll be telling here 6 methods to unblock YouTube and view blocked videos, you can choose anyone of them because I have tried all of them personally and they worked for me.
YouTube Unblocked-Watch Banned Videos
Method 1: Using YouTube Unblock Proxy
This is a proxy site which I have already mentioned on my site. This has worked for me perfectly here and I hope this will do wonders for you too. Here is what you have to do –
- Visit YouTube and open the video you want to watch and copy its URL.
- Now visit the YouTubeUnblockProxy homepage and paste that your URL there in the field at the bottom.
- Hit the “Go” button and you’ll be taken to the page where you can view the blocked YouTube video.
If you want more working proxy sites then you can get them here on this post.
Method 2: Using Unblock YouTube
This is again a proxy site. All you have to do is visit their website and do the steps which you did in the method 1. I would recommend the first one proxy site because the second proxy site showed some problem after showing 1/4th of the video and displayed an error in connection, first I thought that this might be an internet connection error but it happened again for another restricted video whereas on the other hand the first proxy site showed me the complete video without nay errors.
Visit their site here.

Method 3: Using Hola Free VPN
It works like wonder. All you have to do is install the Hola extension on your browser and it will bypass the restrictions. Not only YouTube, you can also stream other websites like Netflix which are not available in your country.
At the time of writing this post, around 62 million people use this VPN service as per their stats and it promises to help you access any website.
Method 4: Using DotVPN
This is one of the finest and useful free VPN service that can help you browse any website with anonymous location and IP address. The best part of this VPN is it also unblocks the sites which are not so popular and lets you play their videos as well which the above one (HOLA VPN) can’t do properly. Try using the location Canada in VPN as it works better. Get it here for chrome browser.
Method 5: Using Gen YouTube
Another possible way of watching blocked videos on YouTube could be watching them offline by downloading it to your system but as you know you cannot download a YouTube video directly from the site but you can do so by changing its URL. Follow the below steps.
- Visit YouTube and open the blocked video and copy its URL.
- Paste that URL to a new tab.
- Type “gen” in front of the URL, for example, if the URL is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdcbbc/ then make it https://www.genyoutube.com/watch?v=cdcbbc. Do not make any changes except adding “gen” to it.
- Hit enter button, it will take you to a page from where you can download the video and watch it offline.
Method 6: Using SaveFrom.net
This one is also same as the above, I am telling you this one to assure if the earlier method doesn’t work then you can try this one. Everything is same, the only difference is instead of “gen”, here you have to type “ss” in front of youtube in the URL.
I have also mentioned some more easy methods to download videos, you can check them out here.
Enjoy your favorite videos without any interruptions. Do let me know if come across any other YouTube unblocked method.
