Can proxy servers play videos? This is one of the most widely asked questions by new users–after all, who doesn’t enjoy watching a cute cat video or clips from their favorite shows and movies? The answer is not always a simple yes or no, however. Some proxies are more capable than others, especially when it comes to delivering complex data like video, if you want to use a proxy to stream movies, you’ll need to do your research. Fortunately, Proxy Server is here to help.

Most free proxy servers run as web applications in your browser. You enter a website’s URL in the application, and the result is rendered within the application (instead of being rendered by the browser). The proxy application acts as a middleman, and because most sites were not designed to be loaded this way, problems can arise with requests for more complicated content, such as video. Most proxies don’t work well with certain technologies such as Java and Flash, which are often used to in video playback, and the results can be a scrambled page, rather than the video you’re trying to stream. Sometimes these errors can be easily fixed–if a video page is not loading correctly, you may be able to fix it by clearing your browser cookies or cache, or restarting your browser. However, if the issue still isn’t resolved, you’ll likely need to find a new proxy that can support video playback.

If you’re specifically looking for a proxy to watch videos, you may need more than a simple proxy server. A VPN, or virtual private network, allows you to mask your IP address in the same way as a proxy, but it acts as a tunnel for all your internet traffic, so pages are loaded directly in your browser instead of in an application. If you want access to your favorite videos on Youtube, Hulu, and other streaming sites, Proxy Server Pro may be just the solution you’re looking for.

Proxy Server Pro allows you all the privacy of a proxy server, and more. Every bit of data you send will be encrypted using government grade technology for a safe, secure browsing experience. Because the pages you request are loaded by the browser, you’ll never get a broken page–with Proxy Server Pro, you can spend less time waiting for videos to load, and more time watching them.

Our servers are located in 25 countries around the world, so no matter where you are, we’ve got one close by. Normal proxy servers can’t always meet your video streaming needs. With Proxy Server Pro, you’ll have the ability to stream any video on any network, and a ton of other great features, too.
