Google Video hack

One of the biggest problems with Google is that they don't provide their services to all locations. Take maps.google.com. You can get satelite pictures with google earth but you don't get the same service with maps.

One more problem is Google Video. Give a search and if you are not from a couple of 'selected countries', we get the following message.

Thanks for your interest in Google Video.

Currently, the playback feature of Google Video isn't available in your country.

We hope to make this feature available more widely in the future, and we really appreciate your patience.

This really sucks!!

Luckily there are a couple of hacks. A crude method is to use lifehack's method, which involves viewing the source code, and doing so magic. link.
A better method is to use a google video downloader. link.

In both cases, you need to download a FLV player.
