I see a lot of posts on here about being blocked from viewing Youtube. I have posted before to try to get around it by using an ip address in stead of the domain name. The posts I mentioned it in have got lost within other threads so I thought I would start a thread off about it.

The most likely way that it is blocked is by the domain name so when you put in
Code:
http://www.youtube.com
it gets blocked. Behind the scenes this really translates to an ip address(all domains do) so it could be bypassed in theory by changing the domain name to an ip address in the url(stands for Uniform Resource Locator - web address). I know some people say use a proxy but I can't test that from the uk as I'm not blocked.

Anyway when you see the example
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4

Change the domain name to an ip address like this
Code:
http://208.65.153.238/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4


Let me know if this works for you.

Fellow geeks, feel free to add your input to this.

Up until now I've used a proxy called Hide My Ass to view any websites that are blocked from Turkey. I'll try your suggestion.

Geocities is also blocked in Turkey. Is there an IP Address we in Turkey can use?



Ive just tried it 3 times on Firefox using this embedded link

YouTube - Hitler finds out Michael Jackson has died.

And I'm getting a "Page Load Error"

Tried it again using Chrome and I get "This web page is not available"

Tried your way Martyn but says Internet Explorer cant open the webpage. Like KKOB I use hidemyass which has a default setting for you tube and works fine.

Ok if the proxy works then that's ok, i just see posts saying they can't view Youtube in Turkey and it is such a great resource to miss out on.

These are the known Youtube servers they use

208.65.153.238
208.65.153.251
208.65.153.253
