what does it mean when you can't see a video in your country? i mean, logically, i can break down the sentence, but in terms of watching something does that mean never or only right now or what?

i've never gotten that as notification before.

too tired to research,

Some videos are only available by region and/or country. Kind of like region based DVDs... as a result, if you aren't using an IP from one of those "allowed" countries, you cannot view these videos.

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

try finding the video elsewhere or posted by someone else...?

or try to contact the user and ask them if they can make it available in your region.

You could also use an IP re-route, but I have no idea how to do that... I'm technologically inept...

That's all that I can think of.

Also, you know, thank you for answering. I appreciate it. I'd never seen something like that.

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

oh you're most welcome, Monday. Its really no trouble. I try. :D

I had the same problem when I tried to watch westlife's videos when I was in the US. :(

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

seriously, is it too hard to ask to be able to get my Skins fix of emily and naomi past the beginning of the final episode of season 3 even though the rest of the episode is somehow being blocked. FIRED, I TELL YOU! I am firing the lot of them.

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

yeah. but that's not half as awesome as me just being a whingy bitch about it. but yeah, i kinda wanna watch it from the beginning now. And dye my hair. But not straighten it.

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

this is true.


Goodnight! I hope things work out! Good luck with the hair project :P

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

Sleep well. Hopefully I get to do the same soon. 4:12 am? not the sexiest time to be awake.

thanks on the luck. maybe i'll streak it pink?

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

ooooh fancy... I've always wanted to do that!! :D

yeah, I didn't want to stay up past 3.12am because I'd wake up in 3 hours anyways (I hate the sun)!

I'm Tanvi, by the way.

*hold hand out*

I'd forgotten that I'd added you as a friend. How rude of me to not have introduced myself. I read your stories on the luke_noah comm.


From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

I'm Monday. *holds out hand* Nice to meet you too. I'd seen your name pop up on a couple of friends list, so i thought that might be how you'd popped up here :)

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

hehe. You were my first favorite author on this fandom (Luke/Noah) though... I'm just a little bit star-struck at the moment... it doesn't happen too often :P... I just never commented on anything. :( But I'm working on changing that. I hope we can get to know each other better over the course of this fandom. :D

Cheers! :D

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

Dude, you do not get the right to be star-struck around me. I'm one of the biggest dorks in the whole wide world. I promise. Cross my heart.

Are there things i should know about you?

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

hahahahaha... aren't there?

the right, eh? Dude, I am also one of the biggest dorks in the whole frikkin' world... I fan-girl over Nightwing for cryin' out loud... and know more about comic books than a person whose never even read one should...

I meant as people, that is to say, I hope we can be friends :D I love your Icon by the way...

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

Maybe we need to start a dorkdom club? I don't know what Nightwing is. Should I?

My icon came from the shoebox project which seems to be missing and is making me sad. I love all my icons from that.

I support being friends.

From: [identity profile] painfullystoic.livejournal.com

well you might actually be able to find bits and pieces of the shoebox project around the internet... the .pdf files got around... and hopefully they'll get it back up soon (as far as I remember they were working on it)...

I don't know your extend of comic book knowledge but Nightwing is Richard "Dick" Grayson (Batman's protege and the original Robin). It becomes Dick's alter-ego after he is driven to quit his partnership with Batman. It was a sad departure, but then we got Nightwing and all was wonderful and beautiful and right again.

Hmmmmm yeah. In the UK, we can't watch several music videos on YouTube anymore. I think it's something to do with licensing agreements or something? I don't think there's a way around it and it sucks :(

Such fail.

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

All i want to do is go to england, marry christian slater, and die. Oh, wait, no that would be me quoting the BtVS movie and also a lie. But it's a good pouting expression.

I've been watching Skins and you would think it would be available on youtube here because, hello, NO BBC4! BUT, oh no, i saw the first 13 segments and then i can't get to 14 on. Jerk heads.

From: [identity profile] not-refined.livejournal.com

Haha, we should swap places. I basically never watch British TV *g* Though Skins has always tempted me a bit.

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

There's a really cute couple of girls who are attempting to become a couple but not quite getting it right, and i'm hoping they will but i don't know because the bloody thing cut off part way through an episode and now i can't see the rest of it.

From: [identity profile] qafaddiction.livejournal.com

I run into that here in Canada all the time, especially with TV shows that stream online. The way I get around it is I have an AOL account, and the IP address is generated from the states (Vermont, I believe) so I just sign in to AOL and watch videos on the AOL browser. I think there are cloaking devices you can use to hide your IP, but it seems like every time someone comes up with a way to get around the censorship, the censors come up with a new way to block the material (in some cases, rightfully so).

From: [identity profile] nouveau-monday.livejournal.com

thanks for that advice. i'm going to look to have a brit friend hook me up.

From: [identity profile] penguinlady.livejournal.com

Yup, happens in Canada all the time. Sometimes (rarely), clearing your cookies will let you see something. And it does have to do with distribution rights - many countries have different laws/deals. Also, I would bet they block countries where there are less stringent piracy laws to prevent some theft. Of course, this is the internet... ;)
