Question by gonzague: how can I play videos while being on a proxy?

My school blocked some sites such as youtube or dailymotion and I would like to know how I can play the videos. I can access these sites using a proxy such as cyberspring but it will not let me play the videos. Is there a way to bypass that?

The short answer is that there is nothing inherent to proxies that prevent them from being used to watch videos. It’s been about 7 years since I even remotely cared about bypassing a filter so I don’t know of any working examples offhand. Many web proxies have (or used to have) checkboxes that enable/disable the loading of plugins and Javascript; you may want to try fiddling with those settings.
