This video contains content from UMG. It is not available in your country YouTube Message
As a YouTube account owner, I am frequently checking YouTube videos, be it my own, or other people.
I wanted to view a friend’s video yesterday, and suddenly this “This video contains content from UMG” message did show up, with a very black background.
This video contains content from UMG message was not disappeared eventhough I tried to access that page of YouTube website via proxies.
I am a typical person who is very curious if I am blocked, and try very hard to get in to see what on earth of a content that video has, that I can not view it in this country..
I guess it is really because where I am now living, which is a country in Europe.
Strangely enough, that I have this “This video contains content from UMG” problem very seldom in YouTube, however when this This video contains content from UMG error happens to me, I hardly can accept it, I did googled around and furious until I could finally watch the video which the “This video contains content from UMG” message blocked it.
This video contains content from UMG. It is not available in your country – Researches in Google
When I saw that notification, I then Googled around that error and tried so many methods that people suggest me.
The very first suggestion is of course proxies.
As I mentioned in the earlier paragraph, using proxy in my browser did not really help me to fix or to view the video.
But maybe I did not try hard enough, because I failed the first try.
So I continued the researches.
I found some interesting topics around the web, that actually quite a lot of people that want to watch videos on YouTube get this notification, completely annoying.
I have clicked all websites on the first page of Google on this matter, and try the tips. One of the tips is to replace the /watch=? with the /v thing, and that actually works one step further, which allows me to view full screen of the video of YouTube in my browser, but it did not allow me to play the video.
As soon as I click the “Play” button, I will face this This video contains content from UMG message thing..argggggggggg!!
This video contains content from UMG. It is not available in your country – Finally I can view the video!
How I was satisfied as I could view the video and my curiousity about why the video was blocked in my county was already gone after I checked the video, it contains a music background that has copyright..wow!
Never really thought about it, it is a music background! and the background is actually coming from Radio.
But I am sure it is because of that music copyright thing on YouTube, so after watching the content, I wrote my friend email to change the music background of she wants her video to be viewable in all countries..
And of course, I have to write how I did finally watch the video.
The fix of this “This video contains content from UMG” was this site: unblockyoutube.org. It is a very unconvenient website, I have to warn because it contains a lots of pop ups as soon as I open the page.
See this screenshot, when you are on the site, copy the complete URL of the YouTube video, and paste it in the box, and hit “Begin”.
In my situation above, I failed to open the blocked video in that website at the first try.
If it happens to you too, you should try again, because at the second attempt, I did see the video on that site, eventhough with a less quality of the YouTube original video which was blocked with This video contains content from UMG. It is not available in your country YouTube error message.
