    Sorry, I'm a little confused here; are you still in China?

    If you are, then they've likely redirected or otherwise blocked the sites on a DNS level, so that's outside of your reach and not specific to your iPod.

    Either way, you may have a "special" Chinese firmware. Not sure how possible it would be to reflash with another version, but it seems more than plausible to me so long as the hardware is the same (and I don't know why it wouldn't be).

    Best of luck!

    I recently read an article about some countries blocking you tube and other sites because they did not want uncensored news, images, etc. etc. been transmitted or received in their country. it specifically mentioned the iphone too. hmmm; interesting and provocative

    as per moosemum.. China block YouTube via a dedicated communist party team at an IP/DNS level and in theory your should not be able to access this service via any Chinese ISP

    That's not really possible coz I live in Hong Kong.. (In China but a different society)

    I've heard that China has just blocked YouTube in 2007..

    So.. You'll need some special softwares to break the law.
