    Ive found alot of websites lately that only let you access them if you are from a certain country. Alot of these sites have video etc that i cannot find anywhere else...

    at the moment, muchmusic.com is frustrating me the most. Only people from canada can access it.

    Is there a way i can somehow... trick it into thinking im from canada?

    Yes,

    Find a proxy from http://www.proxy4free.com/ that is from the country you need and use it.

    They have instructions on the website, takes about 10 secconds after you've found a proxy that works.

    BTW muchmusic.com works fine, maybe you have some kind of spyware/virus.

    Thanks!!

    Its when you try to access videos, such as the "axs" ones. You get a message informing you that you cant watch the vids unless your in Canada.

    EDIT: Damnit, the proxy site has none from Canada.
    EDIT#2: Found one. Thanks!
