I wonder if there are any other users who are annoyed like me by the Great Firewall set by the Chinese Government. If so would you please present me an effective way to get on YouTube? Since it's going to be China's flag-day or something, I tried almost all approaches from the internet like ultrasurf , hotspot shield proxy and some other web-based proxies, none worked to me.
What I want is just to be able to view and download a couple of videos, all tech and programming related. So if there's no way to get pass GFW, other work-arounds are still welcome. Thanks.
I'm asking for technical help. So please don't go any further to politics or anything, not interested and not productive.
I have tried the following to no avail:
- tor + firefox
- tor + opera
- hotspot shield
- Jap ( probably anony-service list banned )
- ultra surf
- http tunnel client ( not sure how to configure, tried an proxy but didn't help )
- any other ordinary http proxies
Nothing worked for me up to now. I don't think this is "Mission: Impossible" and I don't want to wait till China's flag-day to be over, who knows, maybe they'll still be blocked.
Could some commercial solution be the final life-saver?
After a couple of days of following this question (and thanks to the folks who tried to help) it seems to me now this thread can't be loaded completely from my Firefox, the 'Connection reset' info starts to appear.
I picked the answer that actually is working for me. So maybe it's time to close this question because I will still want to access Stack Exchange in the future.
