 +==== I can't reach Hulu now, or some YouTube videos. ====
 +
 +
 +Companies like these are forced to block certain IP addresses behind a "​geo-wall."​ To allow you to see these sites, we have setup a secondary exit for Hulu, Netflix and YouTube, which are blocking our European exits.
 +
 +
 +To use this exit, follow these directions precisely:
 +
 +
 +Using the secondary exit requires you to use Firefox or Chrome as your browser, and to install the FoxyProxy add-on. (Get it by the TOOLS > ADD-ONS menu path.) You cannot use this exit if you run Safari or Explorer.
 +
 +
 +Once you have FoxyProxy installed, go to this address:
 +
 +
 +__[[https://​secure.cryptohippie.com/​support/​downloads/​cryptohippie-proxies.conf|https://​secure.cryptohippie.com/​support/​downloads/​cryptohippie-proxies.conf]]__ and download the file.
 +
 +
 +Next, open FoxyProxy options. The menu path for this in Firefox is TOOLS > FOXYPROXY STANDARD > OPTIONS. Right click in the window. A menu will open. Choose IMPORT SETTINGS. Select the '​cryptohippie-proxies.conf'​ file. Restart Firefox.
 +
 +
 +- - For Chrome - -
 +
 +
 +Go to WINDOWS > EXTENSIONS > GET MORE EXTENSIONS > SEARCH FOR FOXYPROXY (extensions must be clicked on the website). Install FoxyProxy Standard. Click the FoxyProxy icon next to the location bar. Select IMPORT on the left. Select the '​cryptohippie-proxies.conf'​ file.
 +
 +
 +- - - - - - - - - - -
 +
 +
 +The '​cryptohippie-proxies.conf'​ file settings will allow you to reach Hulu, Netfix, YouTube and Booking.com,​ without altering your normal use of our VPN.
 +
 +
 +This does add one more long hop to the system, so these sites will operate slowly, but you will be able to use them.
 +
 +
 +The anti-correlation used for these few sites will not be as strong as our normal anti-correlation,​ but it is still quite good. (It will change the IP address every 10 minutes or so, without breaking your sessions.)
 +
 +
 +WARNING: DO NOT CHANGE OUR FOXY PROXY SETTINGS. IF YOU DO, YOU MAY BREAK YOUR PROTECTION AND CREATE OTHER PROBLEMS.
 +
 +
 +If you have any issues with US-based sites, contact us:
 +
 +
 +__[[support@cryptohippie.com|support@cryptohippie.com]]__ ​
 +
 +
 +That said, there is one change you can make:
 +
 +
 +If you wish, you can turn off the secondary exit for specific sites. For example, YouTube will be slower with the secondary exit. So, if you don't want the slowdown and don't care about the few videos you can't reach, you can remove YouTube from the secondary exit list.
 +
 +
 +To do this: TOOLS → FOXYPROXY STANDARD → highlight (do not click) US-EXIT → click PATTERNS > select YouTube Rule > remove check (regular or right-click,​ depending on your machine).
 +
 +
 +If you do not see the menu choices shown above, stop, start over and look for:
 +
 +
 +- View Advanced Settings
 +
 +
 +- Click to show Advanced and start over.
 +
 +
 +Do not click US EXIT. Use proxies based on their pre-defined patterns and priorities must remain the default.
 +
 +
 +REMEMBER: DO NOT CHANGE OUR FOXYPROXY SETTINGS, EXCEPT AS DIRECTED BY US
