    I have a german with whom I would like to share the youtube vids that we sometimes post on here. Like this one...

    ]


    But when I send him the link, he says he cant see them because of some problem viewing stuff in another country.

    Is there some way to allow him to see the vids we sometimes post here? Is there a mirror image german youtube?

    Yes, you can tell your friend to use a proxy in the United States. Unless YouTube knows the proxy, they can't tell the final destination of the video is outside the country.

    Just Google "proxy server" or "public proxy server" and you'll see a gargantuan list of services and servers available. The first one that shows on the list has a particularly apt name: hidemyass.com icon_biggrin.gif

    Try looking for the video on other sites.

    For instance, a quick Google search turned up a few non-YouTube links for that seat-belt video. (I'm assuming they can't all be restricted in Germany.)

    A simple first step would be to search for it himself on German YouTube. Sometimes when someone posts a video here it will say it is not available in your country, but if you search for it yourself you can find a U.S. upload of the song. If that doesn't work, try other video sites as has already been suggested.

    Thanks, guys!

    Proxies are beyond my comprehension. I'm aged and addled.

    I wish I knew how to access youtube.de or whatever it is in Germany.

    I will search for the vid on other sites. That's about my speed. I sent him a UK link. Let's see if he can see it. He's an actor and I think he will especially appreciate how the message was conveyed without words.
