Due to licensing and regional restrictions, there are certain YouTube videos that you cannot watch from your country. For such videos, YouTube detects the IP address of your network to find out your country and then displays a message stating that the uploader has made the video unavailable in your country. This message can be very frustrating especially when you are very interested in the video. Here to help bypass this restriction for USA-only videos is a tool called ProxTube.
ProxTube is a free to use browser add-on with versions for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. You can install the extension on either browser to view YouTube videos made available only in USA. When you land on such a video, ProxTube connects you to a US proxy and plays the video through it. You can disable the add-on anytime using its icon in the top right of your browser.
- A user-friendly browser add-on.
