Watch Location Restricted YouTube Videos In Chrome With ProxyTube

We often find interesting YouTube video links when browsing across the internet, e.g. search engines and social networking websites. Unfortunately, some of these links are restricted for certain locations due to copyright infringement issues. For example, some videos might not be available outside USA, whereas other videos might only be viewable within Europe. This restriction is a common annoyance that many YouTube visitors often face. ProxyTube is a Chrome extension that enables watching those YouTube videos which may be restricted in your area. This allows circumventing the location based restriction that YouTube applies for certain videos.

Haven’t tried this method of yours but I’ve recently come to know of a better and easier way in the form of Youtube Mirror which allows you to literally watch any restriced youtube videos available on the planet anywhere you are! Have it a go and i’m perfectly sure you’ll love it just like I did.
