Firefox Header Manipulation

Modify Firefox Headers to fool the site into thinking your in the US worked last time spike streamed the VGA's

Hotspot Shield Tutorial
Www.hotspotshield.com

Spoof your IP via a VPN to make it look like your inside the US.
Okay, Update time.

The stream link is throwing up errors for some and not for others, its location based but iv discovered anyone outside the US who is not getting the error may still experience problems.

Test Link
If that gives you a region error then follow the steps below if not then carry on with your day.

Okay, The Modify Headers Tutorial i linked seems to be fairly old so ill write down a quick tutorial on using it for those outside the us.

You must use firefox.

Install This.
Restart firefox
Go to Tools>Add-ons>Modify Headers 0.7.1.1>Options
Under "Select Action" Select "Add"
In the box next to it type "X-Forwarded-For"
In the 2nd box type 12.13.14.15
Click the Add Button
Click "Start" in the top left corner
Click OK
Try This Link and the video should load.

If it works your all set for the stream, if it dose not try hotspot shield.

Doesn't work. :(

Also tried Stalker's but doesn't work too (Philippines here). :(
That's odd. The Firefox HTTP header trick works just fine for me (Western Australia). Are you certain you followed the instructions precisely?

Edit: I just visited the stream page and I'm still able to view the splash image, so the method hasn't been blocked.

Just to Clarify, If it works

This Link Should display.



If its not working you will get a small video about all the exclusives.

So what can i do for chrome to watch the vga tonight.
If you inside the US you dont need to do anything.

Outside the US you can try HotSpotShield linked in my earlier posts or you can try the easier method of downloading firefox and using the Header Modification.

Wait, what is this nonsense with bypassing the stream? Didn't Geoff confirm that the stream will work worldwide..?

To all those outside US who cant get the stream working with the current methods

This Is a UK stream, im not sure if its UK only but if it is they might not have the same restrictions that the SpikeTV site has.

We can use the Modify Headers method but this time using a UK ip.

Install This.
Restart firefox
Go to Tools>Add-ons>Modify Headers 0.7.1.1>Options
Under "Select Action" Select "Add"
In the box next to it type "X-Forwarded-For"
In the 2nd box type 212.69.208.1
Click the Add Button
Click "Start" in the top left corner
Click OK
Try This Link and the Live Stream should load.

You want the below image (but at the ginx site) not a video trailer

The Modify Headers thing worked for me, I can view that video just fine, and it said I couldn't before I did the tweak. Thanks man! Europe here in case anyone wonders.

So there are no actual surprises left? The only real mystery is Epic's new IP, but even then we are expecting an announcement.
11 (?) out of 13 have been revealed / hinted at. There's 2 more we don't know about, apparently. Hopefully there's a surprise the equivalent of the Skyrim one we had last year.

Ah, good. The VGA's would be a decent place to have a Valve game reveal. Only the hardcore watch it, it gets coverage by lots of media outlets etc. Its also cheaper than running their own announcement event.

I told myself I wasn't going to watch this shit tonight.



















I'm totally going to watch this shit tonight. God damnit. Better get liquored up to make a little more tolerable. Speaking of which, I hope some of you fools are getting loaded tonight. VGA stupidity + GAF + booze = fun times :)

You sure you did everything right? Modify Headers worked fine for me, and I'm from Europe as well.
Did you try This?

Follow it to the letter (anything not clear just ask), if its not working i have no answer as to why, its worked for everybody else.
Yes, i did something wrong! I had "Forwarderd" instead of "Forwarded". Thanks StalkerUKCG for helping us. You are the best. :)

I'm ready now!!
