Youtube is blocked in my country and to open it I use hotspot shield on Windows. I have recently however ported to Ubuntu for almost everything, but still need to switch to windows when I have to open youtube (Study, entertainment purposes mostly).
Can someone tell me of a hotspot shield like service (or anything else) that can allow me to access blocked sites from ubuntu? Bear in mind I don't mean proxy websites like hidemyass.com etc. A proper software based VPN.
