Dailymotion Family Filter Is Broken For Australian Users

Video sharing site Dailymotion offers a “family filter” option to block adult content, but it looks like Australians don’t get the chance to actually turn it off.

Clicking on the Family Filter button in the Dailymotion header to change your status should let you switch it off, but currently only results in a “page not found” error. Even if you change your default location, the problem remains, suggesting that either Dailymotion is using IP address filtering or that there’s a much broader problem with its site. Australian users have been complaining on Dailymotion’s own blog, but that doesn’t seem to have had much effect so far. Offering a filter is a better solution than YouTube’s “ban anything adult” approach, but pretending to offer one isn’t. Thanks RC for the tip!
