The major reasons why some countries are restricted from accessing YouTube videos is due to hate speech or criticism. Of course there’s a workaround to this exasperating issue, as you can access most of the videos on the platform through VPN or proxy servers. But in this article, we’re going to show you how to access Geo Restricted YouTube videos without VPN or proxy servers. Before we begin, below are the highlights..

When it comes to video streaming, we’d give the credit to YouTube. YouTube is no doubt, the second most popular website globally and it allows its users to upload and even watch numerous videos that are beneficial. If you’re addicted to YouTube (who wouldn’t be) and you’re unfortunate to live in one of the isolated or blocked countries, then you might’ve been faced with frustrating errors such as “the uploader has not made this video available in your country‚Äč” or in most cases, you’d be confronted with “you’re not allowed to watch this video, Geo Fencing Restriction”.

The main reason why you see this error is because YouTube has region locked filter and most of the videos uploaded on their server is restricted by geographical location and can only be accessed in countries that aren’t blocked. Fixing this errors is a bit tricky but yet simple, as the most common method involves using VPN or the popular Hola extension to fake or change your IP address. In as much as this trick works, they can be cumbersome. Hence we’re going to show you the best way to watch YouTube videos not available in your country without VPN or extension.

Find Region Restricted YouTube Video URL

To begin with, you’ll need to find and copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to watch into a browser. This part only applies to those who are using the official YouTube app. But we’d recommend you to use a third party browser. So open up your Chrome, Firefox or UC browser, login to YouTube and then ‘type in’ the movie name that you want to watch (which is not available in your region).


Change the Video URL from ‘tube’ to ‘pak’

From here, locate the search bar at the top of the browser and edit the keyword from tube to pak. Then press enter. For example, let’s assume the video URL to be..

Now erase the keyword tube and change it to pak just like below

Note: if you’re accessing YouTube with your mobile phone, then make sure to delete the m. For instance if the video URL is

Delete the m. to make it

Once you’re done, hit the enter key.

Watch your YouTube Video

From here, you will be redirected to This website will automatically hide your location to bypass the geo-restriction error. To be sincere, it’s just like VPN but the benefit is that you’re not installing any third party app or extension. There’s also another method to fix “the uploader has not made this video available in your country”. Simply download the YouTube video and watch it offline… case closed!. To do this, add ss before the video URL. For example if the video link is change it to https://ss that’s it!.
