Hey. I need a tool to help me access Dailymotion in China on my Samsung S8. I came to China last month for study and I found that all video sharing websites I used at home are blocked here. Dailymotion is my favorite and I don’t want to give it up while studying abroad. I have no friends here and need it to kill time. How can I watch Dailymotion normally like I did at home? Any assistance?
Do you try to use Dailymotion in China? Can you access the site normally? Any error pops up when loading the site? If you say Yes and have problem in watch video on Dailymotion in China, it’s normal because it is blocked by the Great Firewall of China. Some of you may not know what Dailymotion is. Let’s explain it. Dailymotion is a video-sharing website hosted in France which lets people upload and view videos from all over the world. It streams a larger number of videos including the original content created by Dailymotion studios. Dailymotion is a proper platform for children because it addresses safety through creating awareness of bullying and cyberbullying and providing parents with tools to help their children share and watch videos safely. As the second-leading video-streaming site in the world after YouTube, it is very popular for its high-quality videos in most of the countries and regions. The superior layout and intuitive interface give you an amazing viewing experience. Many users choose because it is very easy to get started with Dailymotion. You can watch the video without signing in. In addition, it is freer to share video on this platform because the producers are more tolerant, giving much less claims on copyright issues. It is a pity that users in China can’t access such a good service. But, you know what. Some people still can access Dailymotion in China. They use VPNs to bypass the firewall to unblock the websites.
As we know, there are many limits to Internet use in China. Lots of Internet regulations are enforced by the different government-owned ISPs there. The firewall and ISPs all work to censor users’ Internet activities. Why the Internet censorship in China is so strict? It is because some statements and media on the Internet had caused riots and disorder in China. They brought big trouble to society and government. Therefore, the Chinese government decided to block some western video sharing platforms and social media platforms etc. Dailymotion, YouTube, Google and more are on the blocked list. There is one more reason for the block. The Chinese government also tries to promote the China-based services like Youku, Aqiyi and Tudou by blocking Dailymotion. China has a large population while the Dailymotion users in China are not that much.
Thought Dailymotion is blocked by the firewall, many users still want to watch videos on it. They refuse to give up the amazing service due to the censorship. So, how to unblock Dailymotion? It is a fact that the local servers in China will not help you access this website. The Great Firewall of China only blocks connections that arise from China. You should not let the ISPs or firewall know that you are actually located in China. For that purpose, a new IP address is required to replace the real one. We are glad to tell you that you can get this kind of IP addresses from the VPN servers. What is a VPN? VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It creates an encrypted and secure connection between you and the website you are visiting. The VPN server plays the role of a middleman between you and the website that you are visiting. Given that the network traffic between you and websites is encrypted like a tunnel, the ISP will have no idea of your traffic emerges without signs of who you are or where you’re connecting from. The VPN server provides new IPs to replace your real IP. With the help of VPN, you will be able to safely watch Dailymotion any time when traveling in China.
Before you read the steps, let us tell you something important. Some VPN websites are filtered by the Chinese government almost every day, and hence there may be a possibility that some of these websites are not working anymore. So make sure that you have seen the updated VPN list before choosing one.

How VPN works while you are trying to access a website?
In order to let you know the functions of VPN, let’s talk about how it works in detail. You run VPN and click on link you want to visit. The browser sends encrypted your account & password and request to your VPN service first. Then, VPN service decrypts the communication and sends it to the targeted website. After the website receives data, it generates session cookie and send it to your VPN service. VPN encrypts the session data it received and then sends it back to your device. In this way, you can view the website you like after your browser received the session cookie. You may think that the process is too complicated and it will take a long time before you can access the targeted website. In fact, everything we mentioned above happens at an amazing and unbelievable speed. In the blink of an eye your request will be sent and everything will respond. Your Internet connection is secure, encrypted and extremely fast with VPN service.
Problems that you may meet while using VPN service
Problem 1: I can connection VPN service via 4G mobile data on my phone, but I can’t connect it via WiFi hotspot? I saw WIFi signal bar there while it still used my mobile data.
The problem may be that WiFi hotspot sets limits on VPN connection. NAT of VPN, namely PPTP/L2TP has been limited. WiFi hotspot refuses to transfer your data to the VPN service.
Problem 2: I failed to visit some regular websites after I turned off VPN. I could access those websites before I first used VPN. I am a Chinese user and I use VPN service to access Google, Tinder, OneDrive,Dropbox, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter and watch Youtube. Now, I can’t visit my favorite Chinese websites in a normal way. I have to run VPN so that I can access them.
Firstly, there may be something wrong with your routing tables. Check your default route and VPN gateway.
Secondly, your DNS may have been hijacked. Check your DNS and scan your computer for malicious programs
Thirdly, it may be the mechanism network problem or Internet proxy. Check your Internet settings.
Fourthly, it may be caused by non-normal exit. Next time, remember quit it in a normal way.
Problem 3: I can’t access local area network after I connect to VPN.
It may be caused by IP address conflict. Check your network line and correct the settings. Find your original gateway address via command.
Problems 4: Why I have blue screen after I run VPN?
Probably, your drive is not compatible with the VPN service you use. Besides, some anti-virus programs, game protection drive and bank security controls will bring blue screen when you use VPN.
