Question What is a VPN>YOUTUBE video?

A colleague in Spain regularly sends me a link via Messenger to videos he takes and uploads to YouTube, but the last two that he sent caused a pop up message telling me that I need to download a new App to view them as they were VPN.YOUTUBE videos.
I found an app in the Microsoft Store which let me view them in its own little window but would not let me download them via 4K Video Downloader.
Eventually I went directly to YouTube and signed in and I could download them via 4K Video Downloader.
My colleague says that he has not altered the way he uploads the videos to YouTube, so my question is "Does anyone know what a VPN.YOUTUBE video is and what causes it".

Default Re: What is a VPN>YOUTUBE video?

Various web content is blocked in various ways around the world. A Virtual Private Network or VPN can circumvent the blocks that countries put on web content. This is the VPN that claims to unlock this content but perhaps this link will explain it clearer. As I don't use a VPN I only have a very basic knowledge of them.

I am not sure why that would stop you from watching the videos your friend sends you unless the VPN he uses changes the files in some way or the content is blocked, perhaps, in this country.

@ The Badger......Never seen a 'VPN-Youtube' advice.... I mainly live in Spain and have occasionally encountered a 'file not available' problem with 4K downloader.....Until I discovered that VLC also offers a download option......I've never had an upload problem though.
