I don't think you can do anything about that. The reason if Youtube block your country mostly you can't view anything from Youtube because of the IP address.

The only solution find another video base website kinda kinda MetaCafe or Vemeo.

@ska

check this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/php-proxy/

But if you set a proxy in your website to redirect youtube, you and the other users should also connect to it through a proxy or a VPN, so that authorities cannot trace your activity.
