Youtube blocked in BD!! This is how I am using It

Recently Bangladesh govt. has blocked youtube in Bangladesh. I figured out that they have blocked the youtube’s dns on btcl caching dns server so bypassing it wasn’t difficult for me.

I have to just flush my dns cache on my local machine. then set my DNS server’s to other than my ISP’s dns servers like google dns servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 ). and use secure socket layer for normal browsing of youtube (using https before youtube’s internet address) .

For flushing local dns cache on windows open “Command Prompt” with administrative privilege then type “ipconfig.exe /flushdns” and enter. This will flush your local dns cache. For method changing dns servers and using google dns check this link.

Yet not loading? try after logging into your G-mail account and then https://youtube.com (open it in a new tab and then just forget) also try loading on Chrome browser.

Please note that it will take some time loading youtube this way, don’t get frustrated. Just try loading couple of times. (just open it in a new tab and give some time. do your other work, it will load automatically.)

Update : Sometimes google dn’s wont work properly. you can try using open dns also or norton dns. try to load youtube in 6 AM to 9 AM in the morning using this trick.

Update 2: Reported not working from 24-10-2012 by some users. If i found any other solutions rather than using proxy i will post it. Till then keep your eyes on this blog or you may be interested to bookmark it.

Updated 3: This trick works well if you are using Wi Max connection.
