I sucessfully created an OpenVPN service using DigitalOcean and it’s working very well. I did notice however that BBCiPlayer seems to be very good at detecting and blocking VPN. I guess they have blocked any IP address coming from a DigitalOcean server.

Could a possible solution be setting up a raspberry pi running OpenVPN at your home address? Or would that not work very well due to slow uploading speeds if you were trying to stream a video or something…

After a quick google search… the answer is yes. (feel free to delete Mr Admin).
