How to watch youku outside of China

I have tried to watch Chinese TV drama on youku. However, youku was blocked by someone so that only people within China region can watch it. I have been looking for a way to bypass it and tried out various ways, including mason addon in FireFox. Nothing worked.

Finally, I found out someone posted a different way to bypass this restriction.

All you need to do is to change proxy to a auto config file:


That is all.

After adding the PAC, you can go to http://ipservice.163.com/isFromMainland to verify your settings.

If the page display “true”, that means you have reach the promise land. This method can also be use on Internet explorer and other browser on PC. You can just continue enjoying youku video.
* I will use this with caution.  I will not use this browser for anything else other than watching youku.
