I live in Germany where all the music sites are blocked due to an incredibly stupid profit organisation called "GEMA". This does also count for Youtube, where more videos are censored than in China(!). Needless to say that plugins like Proxtube and (for example) Grooveshark Unlocker are essential. Thanks to your post I just learned about Hola Unblocker, which might be a cool alternative to all the unlocking tools.

All of Youtube is blocked in China.

I didn't know that. I read about this some months ago in a German newspaper and I was sure that the information was correct. I did a bit of googling and you are absolutely right. Sorry for the confusion!

No need for apologies :) We have to use a VPN to view Youtube, Imgur (though sometimes you can get pics no problem) or newspapers like New York Times. Blogspot is blocked now too, and Wordpress. It's referred to as the Great Fire Wall of China.
