This allows you to use the following video streaming services outside of the US from your Mac without having to use a proxy or VPN, so no big bandwidth issues:
- Hulu / HuluPlus
- CW TV
- Lifetime TV
And it also adds access to the following Non-US services:
- BBC iPlayer
- Channel4 4oD
- iTV Player
It will also resolve any
*.dev address to point to
It's basically routing all DNS requests for these services to tunlr, but any other requests to a local DNS (tries
192.168.178.1) or a global one (Google's DNS and OpenDNS). That way you won't get hit by tunlr's traffic shaping but don't have to switch your DNS settings all the time. Pro tip: If you're not in the US or Europe, add your ISP's DNS server to allow those Geo-DNS optimizations to kick in. Adding more should be trivial, just check out the config.
Tested on Lion in Germany. The
dnsmasq.conf should also be usable on a router.
