    Iran has a new youtube like site

    http://www.sacbee.com/2012/12/09/504...tube-hits.html

    Went to take a look, however, it comes up empty here in the US, no connection.

    Was wondering why. Is the Iran government only allowing Iranians to view it?

    Doesn't appear so.

    If you read the article you linked the answer to why is there... I can confirm that the videos are not just viewable Iran as I can also see them from the UAE (not that I understand Arabic).

    For some reason it came up now.
    But just barely, very slow and stops and starts.

    LOL

    I a pretty sure some countries like the US are blocked. They wouldnt want their countries top secret video of a kitten-bouncing-on-a-ball-of-yarn to leak out.

    Iran says it has launched a video-sharing website in the latest move to create government-sanctioned alternatives to Internet powerhouses such as YouTube.
    Honestly, I think this is a very disturbing trend. We're bound to see more of these kind of sites crop up as authoritarian regimes try to block out the Open Web and instead censor and monitor its own userbase.

    While I tend to agree, forum policy puts this topic in a grey area so we have to be careful not to mix politics on this.
