Youtube is world known for its video surging quality and its exclusive collection in them and is crazily used globally. It has an unbeatable competition with its quality dominance spread worldwide, over every single device of this planet.
There is no single doubt in the fact that any day it has failed to serve its user to its best and on time, but in rare instances, there is an annoying message which pops up with some unknown reasons. The message states – “This video is not available in your country” or “The uploader has not made this video available in your country“.
A simple reason thought, behind this shooting error is about the restriction of the video for a particular geographical location or due to government legal privacy, licensing rights, and some other issues. And it is very obvious that if we watch these videos from some restricted IPs, then one won’t be able to see them.
This kind of message has left the viewers in a deep agony along with a curiosity about that particular video.
Out of a local survey done recently to solve this issue, I’ll be presenting below the list of ways which went unsuccessful:
- Changed the browser
- Cleared the recent history with cache memory
- Resetting of PC and its network
- Restarting the computer
- Installing the latest Google Chrome updates
- Disabled ongoing browser extensions.
- Tried watching the video in incognito mode
- Updated the whole Operating System
So this was the list of some commonly applied ways by the general public, which unfortunately went unsuccessful. So it is an advice to all of my readers for not imitating or applying these above methods in coming future for the very same issue and kindly be with me to know about this error in a little more depth.
Reasons for Error
Now let us shift our concern from the series of hit and trial methods to understanding the actual root of the issue. Some of the most common reasons found behind this shooting errors turn out to be:
- Youtube may have blocked certain content from surfing online to a selected sect due to some local complications.
- There is a lot to deal with the legal restrictions, rules, and regulations from the government’s end and this task must be done carefully.
- Video owners may have created certain content for a particular set of countries likey because of some licensing issues, personal preferences, or some financial analysis.
- There are even geographical factors like extreme cold, high terrain, or deep oceans which certainly don’t entertain video surfing.
Now one may be wondering how this factor is decided of showing the video to the viewers or not? The answer to this doubt lies in this methodology – YouTube Videos check the IP address to recognize and decide if one is allowed in that specific country whenever any video is requested from the clients’ end. Then simply all the legal rules and conditions are checked briskly and accordingly either the video is shown or that annoying message pops up.
