hulu & tor
« on: February 15, 2016, 12:09:56 PM »
Is there any way to watch hulu videos using Tor? Hulu recognizes tor and cuts me off.

Tell your representatives you elect to the congress that you're fed up with copyright maximalism, and maybe your grandkids will live in a more sensible world.

There's no quick fix of the kind you are actually asking for.

What eleman says. That or start living in the US on a location where you can receive Hulu.

Get a cheap VPS in the USA and run a proxy/vpn on it

Nope. It ain't do.

I've attempted Hulu with half dozen vpn providers from small timers to the high profile ones hitting numerous servers. Hulu detects them and blocks playing the content. Extreme irritating and I get the same damn response from them.

Maybe so but I said VPS  ;)

If you just want access to stuff in the USA, it's cheaper than a VPN provider, (eg. $9/year).

Uhh yeah, my bad. In my defense, it's 5 AM in this part of the world :)

A VPS for $9/year? How? Where?

Low End Box is the place to keep checking - here's a special from Feb. 13, still seems to be active:

BitAccel – $9/year Storage OpenVZ 128MB RAM / 30GB HD / Unmetered – in Dallas

That's geared towards storage but the rep does say you can run OpenVPN on it - for $9/year it's worth a go.

Although, since you're already in the USA you probably have some other nefarious purpose in mind  ;D

Nope. Not really. :) It's just that when I have looked into hosting for my websites, I've usually seen VPSes at maybe $4-6/mo at the cheapest. So $9/year seemed incredible.

Thanks for sharing the info!

Probably be perfect for that then - keep checking LEB, some really good deals pop up.
I got a VPS for $24/year (4 vCore, 1GB+1GB vSwap, 150GB, 3TB/month) that is way under-utilised but was a good upgrade from the previous one I had.

Does VPS block your own ISP from seeing where you go online?

Yes, if you're connecting via a VPN running on the VPS - all your ISP will see is a connection to the VPS, not the encrypted traffic that flows over it.

You need to run VPN server software on it, (eg. OpenVPN, SoftEther), or enable the PPTP/L2TP/SSTP server functions (if available).
