Circumvent blocks by streaming services
Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu are often forced by copyright holders to block VPN services and only make content viewable from specific regions.
With OVPN you can circumvent these blocks by activating the Enable streaming services
option in the desktop client. With this option enabled, traffic towards streaming services will be rerouted to VPN servers optimized for streaming. All other traffic will still use the normal VPN server. A technical explanation on how this works is available on the blog
It's also possible to control this setting directly on the Settings page
or in the desktop client
. This is only necessary for OpenVPN connections, not WireGuard connections.
