It is really frustrating to get a message on YouTube that states Vevo has decided to block videos for your country or Vevo is not available in your country. However with the help of a trick in Firefox you can access and download those videos.


What you will need to carry out the trick

1.  Firefox Web Browser
2. User Switcher addon for Firefox

Step 1: Configure User Switcher

In Mozilla Firefox, select Tools. Click  Default User Agent and click iPhone 3.0. Now Firefox will act as an iPhone.

Step 2: Visit the Vevo video channel  on  YouTube

Consider a VEVO channel for Beyonce: beyonceVEVO.

Hover your mouse pointer on a video you want to download and press right click Copy Link Location. Now open Notepad or  any other text editor and paste the contents (Press control + v on windows).

You will get something like this

download_vevo_videos_3
 To do this you have to make three changes to the above URL in notepad
1. Delete m. before youtube.com at start
2. Delete client=mv-google#/ in middle

3. Delete client=mv-google at the end


So the final URL will be like

download_vevo_videos_4
            
Step 3:  Download YouTube video

Go to Keepvid.

Now download the videos by  clicking on any of the the four links shown in green.
