How to unblock Youtube?
Use Https connections.
This is one of the easiest ways. It is not only about unblocking the geo-restricted videos but also unblocking the blocked sites done by your organization network. This one works especially when I was in my college days. I just change HTTP to https and I can watch the videos blocked by the college school. They block websites and if they do that just for the HTTP connection, you’ll have to input the https to browse the website that you want just like Youtube.
Download the videos and watch it offline.
Watching Youtube videos online can be a little bit annoying especially when your internet is just too slow and it keeps buffering. Here are the steps on how you can do it.
The blocked URL video will be like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEwD36Dk1jw and all you have to do is to remove the http://www. And then you will need to enter ss before youtube.com/watch?v=yEEwD36Dk1jw so it will look something like ssyoutube.com/watch?v=yEwD36Dk1jw
Download the video according to your quality preferences.
Use a VPN.
