How To See YouTube Videos on Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia

YouTube has been blocked for quite some a time. There are other ways to see YouTube Videos but they aren’t so good as they load really slow via proxy/VPN services. There is an easy fix for that. I’m going to show you how!

How to See YouTube Videos: Step by Step Tutorial

  1. Go to you system drive & find the hosts file. The location of hosts file is C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\
  2. Open C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\
  3. Copy hosts file on desktop.
  4. Open it with Notepad.
  5. Add this code at last of the hosts file

  • When you’ve done it, the hosts file should like this:

     (Remember you must put the code without the # (hash) tag.)

  • Save it.
  • Copy the hosts file again & replace it on the system drive (It’ll ask for Admin Permission. Click YES)! BOOM! You are done

If the first method didn’t work for you then follow this procedure

  • Download the software HotSpot Shield (free version).
  • Install it.
  • You’re good to go. You should now be able to watch Youtube without any problem.
  • Let me know whether you can watch Youtube now or not!
