Problems with You Tube... anyone else? Posted Jul 12, 2008
Hey All,

I have noticed that a lot of videos on you tube, ones that wouldn't be considered 'adult' or otherwise in need of 'censorship'... are not showing up for me, and am getting a message like : this video is no longer available.... however, for my friends and family in the UK, can access those same links/videos with no problems.

Is anyone else having this problem as well?

Is there any solution to it?

Thanks.

Not Sure,

I think that these problems are specific to the U.A.E (or then perhaps the G.C.C)... there's no problem in England.

I was hoping that someone would inform us how we can get around.

Indeed it is the intention of ETISALAT to block some sites, especially sites containing pornographics. We are in the Muslim Country, so I think it is their right to protect their image and their culture in someway. How much more in Saudi, and Riyad. But I think there's a software to unblock all the block sites. :?:

One thing I know as well that in Media City or Internet City, they are using different proxy, and friend of mine says that the Internet Connection there is not Block. Well that's cool :wink:

PM me and you will know the TRUTH :roll:
