    Anyone know any decent way of connecting i-player when out of the UK, and a way of playing UK only youtube videos?

    When you are out of the UK install a proxy server and open up the proxy port in all firewalls they have. You need to be a cable or SDSL subscriber because upload speed will become your download speed! Your computer will need to be on whenever you need access.

    You can also try froxyproxy

    Too messy - I was using proxies before - but directly from my connection on wifi abroad (Hotel or Fon).

    However, the ones I was using are no longer open, or are carrying too much traffic.

    Blacklogic should do the job for you.

    Indeed, not used any others mind. Any cheaper ones for the OP to look for?

    Was gonna suggest Relakks but it seems they only use servers in Sweden, so no good.
    $15 for Blacklogic doesn't seem to bad. Guess it depends how desperately OP needs iplayer/youtube!

    I used Relakks too, great service from them too but like you said, you won't get BBC iPlayer through them.
