How to Bypass the Regional Filter on YouTube

Unblock YouTube Videos and Bypass Regional Filters

Have you ever read about a great YouTube video only to click the link and get a message that the video is not available in your country? It’s extremely frustrating. YouTube uses regional filters that block certain videos from being played in certain countries. But, you can now easily get around these regional YouTube filters in three easy steps.

Read below how to bypass the regional filter in YouTube to watch your favorite videos!

Get Around YouTube Regional Filters in 3 Easy Steps

All you have to do to bypass YouTube regional filters is:

  1. Download Speedify – get it on your PC, Mac, iPhone or Android smartphone
  2. Open the Speedify App
  3. Navigate to YouTube / use the YouTube app

Speedify is a powerful, next generation VPN built for mobility that works by encrypting your data and masking the true location of your IP address. YouTube thinks you are in a different region and you are able to watch any YouTube video you want.

Speedify doesn’t take any technical expertise to setup and run. All you have to do is download the app, open it and connect. Then, all of your Internet browsing will be safe from snoops and regional filters. Speedify lets you bypass your regional filter on YouTube, or any other streaming service.

Why Are Regional Filters Used on YouTube?

YouTube blocks content in certain countries for two reasons. One, YouTube blocks content that does not comply with the laws of the country. The more restrictive the laws of a country are, the more videos YouTube’s regional filters will block in that country. The regional filters typically do this blocking automatically. There may be nothing wrong with the video you want to see, but because YouTube would rather be safe than sorry, its algorithms sometimes incorrectly filter videos.

The second reason a video may be blocked is licensing restrictions. Content creators and distributors use the settings on their video to keep it from being shown in certain regions. A creator may be using intellectual property that it has licensed, but that license may only apply to certain regions. This is the same issue with the streaming-video giant Netflix. Because of complicated licensing issues some content is not allowed to be shown by certain distributors in certain regions.

Speedify Doesn’t Slow Down Your YouTube Connection Like Other VPNs

Using a VPN is one of the easiest and most common ways of bypassing YouTube regional filters. But, while almost any VPN could help you access any YouTube videos you want, most VPNs will also slow down your connection to the point that watching videos can be painful. Standard VPNs have a design flaw that slows down connections by as much as 50%.

Speedify works completely differently. It still provides the same level of security and IP address masking, but it won’t slow down your internet connection. Most VPNs are still running on technology that is over ten years old. Speedify has created its own proprietary protocol that allows for secure, lightning fast connections.

If you want to get around a regional filter on YouTube, and you don’t want to have to deal with your video constantly buffering, or the connection suddenly going out, you need to use Speedify.
