How To: Watch Rated-R, 18+ Videos On YouTube Without Logging In or Signing Up

YouTube may prevent you from playing certain videos because the contents might be inappropriate to you. You may be below the age of maturity to view the video so YouTube normally requires you to sign in or signup first before heading on. Here's a sample message I got from YouTube when I tried watching this video:

"This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as determined by the video uploader. To view this video or group, please verify that you are of the appropriate age by signing in or signing up. If you would instead prefer to avoid potentially inappropriate content, consider activating YouTube's Safety Mode."
