Are you trying to access YouTube from work and do not have access or upload any video? Normally, companies usually apply various filters to prevent their workers from accessing certain Internet pages.

This is usually done to prevent access to websites that in principle are not considered productive or related to our work environment. A good example is video platforms, sports news and results websites, movies, etc. And of course also YouTube. Also, see how to Youtube com Activate TV.

In today's guide, we will see how we can bypass that restriction to watch YouTube videos from work without problems. Before starting, we must bear in mind that companies can use various methods (proxy filtering, firewalls, modifying the "hosts" file on the PC, etc.) to prevent access to certain pages. If we see that any of these methods does not work, let's try the next one.

How to watch YouTube videos from work

Of course, depending on the strength of the filtering and the type of Internet access control applied by each company, it is possible that they neutralize all our attempts to watch videos on YouTube. In any case, some may serve us perfectly, so don't give up on your efforts. Luck!

Connect to YouTube using Proxysite

Proxysite is a page that uses servers located in various parts of the world to access YouTube. When we connect to Proxysite, we only have to select the server - we can leave the one that appears by default -, confirm that we have the YouTube URL loaded in the search engine and click on the "GO" button.

In this way, we can enter our favorite video platform without restrictions. And not only that, since we can also access content with regional blocking thanks to the different servers that Proxysite makes available to us. One of the easiest and most practical ways to get around crashes by loading YouTube from another page.

This website is very popular, which means that many times the server is saturated and does not allow uploading the videos. To solve this, it is best to try another server (I usually use the "US9" and "US10" servers, which are not normally very saturated).

If you have problems you can also try other web proxies, such as Hidemyass, 4everproxy or Hide.Me. You can find more information about the characteristics and differences between these proxy services on the Proxysite website in the post « The best proxy servers to browse anonymously «.

Use Google Translate to watch the videos without restriction

A good trick to be able to watch YouTube videos is to use the Google translator as an unblocking tool. In the text to be translated we simply enter the URL of the YouTube video that we want to see and click on “ Translate ”. It will automatically load the video into the translator, bypassing the URL restriction.

It is recommended that the target language be Spanish, to avoid problems when loading the corresponding YouTube page.

Access anonymously with the TOR browser

The TOR browser is one of the safest ways to browse the Internet. If we access YouTube through TOR, we prevent our service provider from “reading” (and consequently blocking access) the pages we visit, our credentials and our history.

We can install the official TOR browser, the TOR Browser, totally free from the developer's own website.

Note: this method may give us more problems, since in many companies users do not have permission to install applications on their PC. If this is our case, let's try the following "trick".

Make use of the Yotids search engine

The Yotids website is a search engine that performs " indirect browsing". Instead of connecting to a server directly, Yotids looks for the resource and loads it on its own server, thus hiding our IP.

In this way, from work it will appear that we have accessed Yotids, but not YouTube - something similar to what we do with Proxysite. If our company, library or public center does not have access to Yotids blocked, we can visit YouTube from its website without any problem.

Use a VPN app

Another easy way to bypass work restrictions to watch YouTube videos is to use an application that allows us to establish a VPN connection to hide our IP address. If your company or office is not blocked from installing applications, you can try a lot of VPN applications for PC such as TunnelBear.

If we prefer to be a little more discreet, we can install a browser like Opera (download on its official website HERE ), which has a free integrated VPN service. We can use it as a browser to use during our working hours, and when we have a free time, click on the "VPN" icon that we will see within the address bar itself. Automatically a small menu will be displayed where we can activate private browsing and also choose our virtual location (Asia, Europe or America).

The Ultrasurf app

Ultrasurf is a PC application (free with embedded ads) that was once created to give users in China more freedom when browsing the Internet. The program uses proxies to mask our IP and browsing data, allowing us to visit websites with restricted access.

Some antivirus detect it as a malicious application. False positive or not, Ultrasurf is a tool that has been used for many years to overcome all barriers against Internet censorship. If we can use any other tool, much better, but if not, it is another option to consider.

Note: In recent times there has been an intensive use of Ultrasurf in the Middle East, which is saturating the servers of this application. According to the developers, although they are working to expand and offer a stable service, we may notice slowdowns or cuts in times of high activity.

Let's think that with these tricks to bypass company locks we are not only opening a door to our office computer, but to all the computers that are on the network within the domain (which in some cases can be hundreds or thousands of PCs ).
