YouTube, the most popular video-sharing web site is now accessible in China. Several sources from SINA Weibo, the nation most influential micro-blogging service, has reported that YouTube is partially accessible without using any VPN service. Chinese internet user can access and search any video from YouTube, including politically sensitive content. But not every video can be played successfully. Could it mean that Google itself–not Google China–is cooperating with Chinese authorities ?
At the mean time, internet users from Guangdong province, Fujian Province, and big city like Shanghai and Beijing are able to access YouTube by using HTTP secure method. Any type of video contents can be successfully search and comments can be read, but most of the videos are unable to play. Looks like the Great Firewall of China has loosen its power or just some technical error might had occurred. Recently, Google+, the social network created by Google, can be accessed in China too without using a VPN. In the end, US President Obama’s official Google+ page has been occupied by Chinese netizens. We believe the sudden unblock might be just temporarily, the communist China doesn’t like free information from outside world flowing into their ‘intranet network’.
