Default Sorry! This thread is not available in your country!

I'm sure all of you at one point while surfing the net have attempted to watch a video on an American site and have been left with a black background and something along the lines of 'This video is not available in your country', some don't even bother to display such a message and just leave you at a loading screen.

What I'm wondering is if anyone knows a way to bypass this.

Btw, I'm asking this because I'm doing a research paper on eBay and would really like to stream CNBC’s ‘The eBay Effect’ Documentary’ from their website. =|

Use a proxy server based in the states.

Or like Hulu.. You can try Hotspot Shield. Works for me, but it's only 32-bit. You can also try Ultrasurf which works for both 32 and 64-bit, but it doesn't work with Hulu. If you have FF, you'll need an addon to make Ultrasurf work.

Try Gpass. It is by far the most powerful proxy program I have ever seen, and I have seen a few. You can tunnel any app you want through their servers using this program, and works well with streaming media.
