Set YouTube Account To Worldwide For Better Content Access

YouTubeFix.jpgIt's no surprise that YouTube uses a IP-based guess at your location to stop video content being accessed depending what country you're in, but it turns out it also makes use of your account information to block other content, with sometimes pointless results. If you're signed in to YouTube and your account settings say 'Australia', for instance, then attempting to access any entries on the official YouTube blog will instead redirect you to an empty page on the Australian YouTube blog. You can fix that particular problem by changing your location settings to 'Worldwide' (click on the word 'Australia' at top left, then choose 'Worldwide'), though Google says it's looking into a more permanent solution for this bug.
