Two days have passed since the ban on Youtube. With a friend’s notice, I realized that I cannot view Youtube with my current modified DNS settings (ie, other than Turkish Telecom ones).

I tried to ping www.youtube.com but it all timed out. I tried Netvibes‘ Youtube search and it worked. Using proxies to reach Youtube works as well.

News at PcLabs (in Turkish) shows that the ban is no longer DNS-based – but IP based.

So, apparently; leaving Turkey, using a proxy or reaching Youtube from http://youturke.com/ are the only options for now.
