I'm in a surley mood right now. Some time ago I noticed that TopGear.com made many of the videos on their site only playable within the UK. I should really go shopping for food for tonight's dinner, or finish some sh*t-pile of work that was dumped (by me) in my office, but because I love you as much as Floyd Landis hates me, I'm trying to bring Top Gear back to the masses.
I was researching this all afternoon (not really; it took less than a minute to resolve), and finally came across the following work-around within a thread on FinalGear.com. Note: I didn't write this hack, but it seems to do the job. So F' the BBC and enjoy ALL the Top Gear UK videos...
2. Identify a video you'd like to watch, but which is blocked outside of the UK (in this example, I choose Daytona v boat pt.1):
2. Click on the bookmark when you're on the video page and it's telling you that the video is UK only and the video loads.
3. Enjoy the clip.
