Restriction Checker

A light-weight Chrome extension that doesn't require any permissions.

Most useful for sharing videos with international audiences. It displays an icon near the address bar. When clicked, it tells you whether the video is blocked in any country or if it's restricted in another way.

It knows about:

  • Geographic restrictions
  • Embed restrictions
  • Whether a video is publicly available
  • Age restrictions

It works on:


Get it from the Google Webstore
