Hope this is the right place to post.

I subscribe to a bunch of "geek" sites on Youtube, mainly for learning purposes.

A couple of the sites are English, e.g. Briteco9. 

Today, I clicked on the site and the message on the screen said, " Not available in your country, sorry".

I'm guessing something has changed, like with copyright or something.

Can anybody shed some light on this?

 

                                                                          Thanks.

It's called Geo Blocking and some content creators will use it to prevent viewing in selected areas. I run into it occasionally. When I do, I try to find the video on alternative viral video sites like Daily Motion or Vimeo.

Hey frankp, thanks for the info, I will try those sites.

I still wonder why it suddenly changed. 

Anyway, thanks again.
