YouTube uploaders have the option to restrict the viewing audience of their videos. If you’re getting this error, it means that the uploader has not made the video available in your country.
If you are in the US and the uploader is also from the US, and you are sure that the video is available in your country, try watching the video in Incognito (private) mode.
If you are not in the US, or if Incognito mode does not work, you will need to use a VPN service to watch the video. You can easily find VPN software for desktops or mobile devices.
Note: YouTube sometimes makes changes to its code and may hide/show videos based on your location even if they have been set as “public.” This is due to Google’s policy of respecting regional copyrights and licensing agreements, which may prevent some videos from being viewed outside of their respective regions.

YouTube Fix: “The uploader has not made this video available in your country”
This is a complete guide on how you can remove the country restriction from “The uploader has not made this video available in your country” on Youtube.
Right now there are many paid and free VPN services, which can be used to change your IP address to match that of a specific country.
You can install a VPN on your PC or use it through the Google Chrome browser. You need to select the country where the video is available and reload the page.
You must know that using VPN is not the most reliable solution because of its speed-related problems and it does not always work for everyone.
If you are using Google Chrome, then you can bypass the “The uploader has not made this video available in your country” error without installing any additional software: just install the TubeBuddy extension and add the “Proxy Helper” extension from Chrome Web Store to it.
You will also need to open a proxy server list (I recommend ProxyDB) and copy one of these proxies.
Next, go to Youtube, open the video that you want to watch, and paste the proxy into the bar at the top of your browser. “The uploader has not made this video available in your country” message should disappear.
Conclusion: YouTube is not just a video streaming service but also the world’s second-largest search engine. Millions of people turn to YouTube to search for something or the other. However, sometimes you might face an error message like “the uploader has not made this video available in your country.”
The error “the uploader has not made this video available in your country” happens when the uploader of the video has decided to restrict its access to some or all countries around the world. The only way to fix such an error is to use a VPN.
With the help of a VPN, you can watch videos that have been restricted by the uploader. To do this, you would have to access the video from a different IP address than the one you are currently using.
