I am using NordVPN. Usually, everything works superb, but there is something that does not work that great with me (I am not much advanced).
I could not access Disney plus using the American servers. I managed to enter a British one (which is good. But why not American?).
I can only play some of the BBC iPlayer series.
I searched for a solution here and on Reddit. My thinking is that maybe I could change my DNS or use a proxy (socks)? I feel attracted to DNS number 188.8.131.52 (didn’t set it up yet, can I do it in NordVPN, or should I do it in Windows?)
Earlier I also wanted to sign up for the New York e-library card but failed because they require a geolocation check, which I failed.
I checked dnsleaktest.com standard test, and it shows London, UK (which is great, but it does not help).
What can I do with it? Could you help?
I was using a New York server for SimplyE (New York library). I ckecked my IP and indeed I was there exactly.
I know there is something more needed. They require to allow geolocation when they check. I tried to use Hola fake geo on Android, but it does not work with me… My mobile cannot be rooted, I think.
I can play some things on BBC iPlayer, I cannot play some, because they say I am not in the UK. I checked that my IP location is in the UK. My DNS shows UK as well.
I know these websites are more protected against VPN users. But I thought that maybe there are some “walk” arounds (workarounds).
You are right, I wondered the same. Many times NordVPN was connecting me with New Jersey. I found the right one in the New York (https://whatismyipaddress.com) but unfortunately, they detect the right thing. Maybe by Java Script, or something
I think its due to the fact NordVPN gets hammered and some of there ips get blacklisted. Try connect again to USA servers or do a quick connect and choose 1 of the 4 locations in USA again and see if that works. Im sure if you try connecting a couple of times you will get a different ip and you may be in luck. As ive had a time were ive been on Netflix and its said VPN detected so i disconnected from USA and tried another USA location and it worked no problem.
You are right, Dunamisss, I switched to ProtonVPN for a while and experimented with different servers. I took the quite busy one (97%) and it turned out I could actually play some shows I was not able earlier. It works for BBC
