I'm trying to fetch pages from YouTube but YouTube shows a page saying that I can't watch the movie because it is blocked in Germany. The server is actually in the Netherlands (I checked in any location trace I found and all agree that it's in the Netherlands) but still all the pages show in German and it blocks me because of that.

I've checked the connection (fetched a page that shows your IP) and it showed the server's IP.

Does anyone know what the problem could be and how can I fix it?

This is the IP: - I'm not sure about the DNS, the server located in Netherlands and I'm moving a website to this server and than pointing the domain using A Record.

The CNAME is defined on to that server (it's not pointing there) with A Record from the server to Why would it make any difference to YouHube from which CNAME it was called? And I don't know if it's matter - but the NS on the server pointing to ns1/2.NCSB001.local.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Fetching pages from a server most likely violates the YouTube terms and conditions. You should rather use their embedded widget to have your visitors connect directly to the YouTube server. – Ben Voigt Oct 27 '11 at 18:18
But I need to get data from that page (and it's not available on the API) – Joe Polico Oct 27 '11 at 18:42
Does the client machine (not the server) reside in Germany? – Mike Oct 27 '11 at 18:44
No, and the whole page loaded to the server so to Youtube it's like the server is browsing the site – Joe Polico Oct 27 '11 at 18:54
Where is the DNS server you're using located? It might go to a different server farm or cloud service. This is complete speculation by the way. – RobotHumans Oct 27 '11 at 23:07

Tell google they've got incorrect information about your ip address (/network). We've had the same at our university and it got fixed within some days after we reported the problem (recognized as Switzerland instead of Germany).

Thanks I'll try this, but the problem is that's from a server I just bought and I need to place my site in it as soon as I can, and right now it's kind of a problem.. – Joe Polico Oct 28 '11 at 2:24
