How to Change the YouTube Display Language without Cookies
Learn how to display YouTube content in English using PHP's cURL function instead of file_get_contents, even if your hosting service language and IP address are set to Turkish. Follow these simple steps to bypass language and IP restrictions without using cookies.
Are you having trouble viewing YouTube content in English when accessing it through PHP's file_get_contents function? If so, this could be because the language and IP address of your hosting service are set to Turkish. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem that doesn't involve using cookies.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Use the cURL function instead of file_get_contents to access the YouTube page. This function allows you to set custom headers, which can be used to tell YouTube to display the page in English.
2. Add the following code to your PHP file to use the cURL function and set the appropriate headers:
$ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "https://www.youtube.com/@PewDiePie"); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array( 'Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.8', 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/58.0.3029.110 Safari/537.36' )); $response = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); echo $response;
The first header specifies that the preferred language is English, while the second header sets the user agent to that of a common web browser. These headers tell YouTube to serve the page in English and make it appear as though the request is coming from a browser.
3. Once you've added this code, run the PHP file again and you should see the YouTube content in English.
In summary, by using cURL and setting the appropriate headers, you can bypass the language and IP address restrictions of your hosting service and view YouTube content in English without using cookies. Give it a try and see if it works for you!
