I’m using Lightcast’s GeoIP Blocking feature for my publishing outlets. How can I watch my own content if it is blocked for my region?

As account owner of your Lightcast.com account, you can watch your media content, which you decided to block for your viewers, by logging in to your Lightcast.com account and by using the preview mode of your VOD Channels, LIVE Channels or single videos.  You can find the preview mode when clicking on a Channel inside your Lightcast Control Center and choosing “Watch Channel” from the Channel Managers page. To preview single videos instead of a Channel, scroll down to your Channel Playlist within the Channel Manager page and click on the video or audio thumbnail, which opens up the preview player. Alternatively you can also go to “Media Archives” (in the main menu) and click on the video thumbnail of one of your videos or audio files.
