Alternative unblocking methods
Our in-browser proxy technology is truly the most advanced of its kind, however there are inherent limits to what it can do. If you are unable to acccess youku.com using our unblocker above here are some alternative tricks you can try. Please note however that the methods below require that you have administrative privileges on your computer. If you are in a restricted environment you likely won't be able to follow them.
Method 1: Access directly by IP address (using hosts file)
On the Internet computers communicate with each other using numerical identifiers called IP addresses. Before your computer can talk to youku.com server it needs to obtain youku.com's IP address. A great deal of website blockers work by interfering with this process and misleading your computer about what youku.com's IP address is.
To bypass this type of blocking you can configure your computer to always use a predefined IP address when accessing youku.com. In order to do that, you need to edit the so called hosts file. On Windows it's "C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts". On Mac OS X it's "/etc/hosts". Open this file with a text editor (Notepad on Windows, TextEdit on Mac OS X) and append the following lines to it:

Method 2: Use a VPN
VPN is the most efficient and robust block bypass method, but it might also take you more work to set up and may cost some amount of money. However if you often need to access the net from behind a blocker and care about your privacy and security it's well worth the effort and money.
