Here are a couple solutions to bypassing the region locking:
- A Greasemonkey script: This requires Firefox (or maybe Opera) but will "fix" the videos automatically.
It seems TopGear.com has made the unfortunate decision to make the videos on their site only playable within the UK. This change is very recent as when I posted those videos yesterday, there were playable here in the USA. I sincerely hope it’s just a bug or something on Brightcove’s part (they’re the company handling the video serving for TopGear.com), but that’s probably not the case.
Looks like we’re going to have to start mirroring the videos or something so people like me who are outside of the UK can watch them.
