"This video is not available in your country." or
"This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community. To view this video or group, please verify you are 18 or older by logging in or signing up."
The trick to get them watched is changing URL a little bit as following; e.g. if you get a restricted video with URL like this:

As you're seeing, it's simple to understand the changes, so what you only need to change is to take away "watch?" and replace a "slash" with "=" as above.
