You Tube Harmonized
« on: March 06, 2009, 12:50:44 AM »
I notice Youtube has been harmonized. I hope it's only because of the party going on in Beijing and will resume functionality once the last cup of Baiju has been gangbei'd and final hong bao has been received for this year's gathering.

a few reasons being floated around on twitter about why... some have to do with Oasis videos, others with some song called "g r a s s   m u d    h o r s e"

Pretty sure it had to do with the t'tan video, although BBC was never harmonized.

It's been more than a month now and Youtube is still inaccessible.

If anyone cares to share their favorite work-around(s), let's have it.

Just install and use this:
https://www.torproject.org/vidalia/
It will work with all blocked websites.  Note that this site is also blocked by the gov, so you will need to use a proxy to access it first, then download the Vidalia package.

Would it not be easier to simply access the site I'm looking for via proxy? What benefit does the additional software provide?

most proxies don't work with streaming media sites, and TOR is essentially a proxy in function.

HSS works well for YouTube......or used to - past few days it's been cripplingly slow.

On the other hand, here's a great YouTube downloading program...

I understood that the reasons for YouTube's "harmonization" had to do with a Tee and a Bit and a dallied llama movie that was being shown there that provoked the greatest of all ires.

It's gone at least until November or so I keep hearing.  Please, please prove me wrong.  I also miss it.

And yes, you can use some proxies but the videos feeds are so slow as to render viewing things meaningless.
