What’s the Problem?
At Yeners Way we host our premium tutorials on a website called Vimeo. Unfortunately, in some countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and China to name a few), Vimeo is blocked and inaccessible. If you are in one of these countries and have subscribed to Yeners Way or purchased a tutorial individually, you may see a blank area where a tutorial video should appear. So at this point, you basically have 3 options…request a refund, move (joke), or use a VPN.
What’s a VPN?
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from prying eyes on public Wi-Fi, and more. VPNs essentially forward all your network traffic to the network, which is where the benefits – like accessing local network resources remotely and bypassing Internet censorship – all come from. Most operating systems have integrated VPN support.
How can I get a VPN?
Firstly, there’s the free option which is quick an easy. You can simply use an extension for Google Chrome called Betternet Unlimited Free VPN Proxy. After installing it to Google Chrome, there will be a shield icon in the top right corner of Google Chrome. Click the shield, and then click ‘Connect’. You should now be able to watch the tutorials.
If you do not use Google Chrome, there should be similar extensions/add-ons for all browsers but I cannot recommend any here.
If you are after a little more control, there are also many premium options which give you more features, one of which is the ability to choose locations to connect to. This is of course a good thing because your internet speed will be faster if you can connect to a location near you. We’ve only had experience with one premium VPN service in particular which is called PureVPN but they all do pretty much the same thing…give you more privacy and security when using the internet.
If you want to watch the tutorials on a mobile device (iPhone, iPad, etc), you can also do this with PureVPN as well. They have an app for iOS and Android that makes it very easy to get setup.
Of course if you have any issues, feel free to email us and we will be happy to assist.
