Watching YouTube videos is a relaxing activity which everyone loves. But more often than once you come across videos which cannot be watched because of country restrictions. These geographical restrictions are mostly because copyright or licensing issues. Obviously internet has a way out for everything. You can find proxy servers to go around these restrictions and still watch the video. But before you do that, there is a simple way you can know which countries that particular video is unavailable in. This is where this YouTube Region Restriction checker comes in. This website lets you know which country a particular video is available in and what country it is not.
All you need to do is copy the URL of the YouTube video you want to watch. Paste this link in the video ID field and click submit query. This can be seen in the screenshot below.
When you click the submit query button, it will take a few seconds to generate a map of the world to point out the country restrictions on the video. As you can see from the above screenshot, the region or countries where this video is unavailable are marked in red color on the map. You can hover your mouse over the map to know the names of these countries. You will also find a list below this map, where all the disallowed countries are listed along with the countries where its allowed to watch this video.
Now you can get back on your horses and find a proxy server to watch this video in case its unavailable in your country.
