YouTube: We’re sorry, this video no longer available.

Anyone else getting this in Thailand when you attempt to view YouTube Videos? Are they blocking again? I’ve had this since yesterday – two different browsers… no, wait – three. Firefox 2, Firefox 3, IE 6.

Update – an excellent comment by “WiseKwai” gives a solution to seeing the YouTube videos! He said, just add “&fmt=18 ” to the end of the url of the YouTube video. Apparently it then grabs the full resolution version of the movie clip that was uploaded. Otherwise YouTube disburses rendered clips. Great comment- thanks for the help… I’m now viewing the video I wanted to see for 3 days.

  1. There was some problems with YouTube’s functionality last week – videos wouldn’t load unless you added the &fmt=18 to the end of the URL to get the higher-res format.

    But now I don’t notice any problems.

  2. Ok then – must be Thailand wide… I tried on two different networks too TT&T internet at my internet shop and at home using mobile as modem with DTAC. Same deal… damn.
