    YouTube links that will work in Panama

    I've got a friend living in Panama who I've sent links to YouTube videos. But when clicks on them, they give errors. (other links I send him do work, I think.)

    Is the problem because he is in Central America, and the links need to be formatted differently, or directed to different YouTube servers?

    Thanks

    Is the error…
    “This video is not available in your country”?

    That means a geo-block, and he'll need a VPN to get around it.

    If not that, what is the error message?

    A possible is to put "ss" before "youtube" in your links—or he can type it in on his side. Example, your link is
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTw9Sl3fkpk

    One of you change it to
    https://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=jTw9Sl3fkpk

    He's an old guy, not that good with computers. He is unclear about if there are messages.

    I am working on getting him to email me a working youtube link so I can take a look at it.

    I asked him to look carefully and email me the error message. Here is his response:
    When I tapped on the link you jus sent me, I got the same white message in a black box that said: This video is not playable. But when I hit the go arrow in the red field the song began! Go figya!

    Not sure what happened, but looks like we are good now.

    Thanks
