How can I watch or download online videos through a web filter?

Andrew May 8, 2011

My school has an M86 web filter which blocks all videos, no matter the content, title, or site. Is there a way to bypass the filter to view or download a specific video that I need for class?

    You could try using a portable VPN/proxy app that you can run from an USB thumb drive, but since the school has banned all video content you might get in trouble by doing this so take that into consideration.
