    Incorrect, It is set up correctly, All that is needed is to click the blank rectangle that is selected and it will go to YouTube.

    I added Fiddler instructions, they are cleaner than the instructions for Charles and Fiddler is free. I recommend that people who are new to this to use that.

    I also updated the files for Charles so it can load youtube right from the "Company Info" link just like I set up for Fiddler.

    Since this is my thread for watching YouTube on Switch, why would anyone crash their Switch over and over trying to watch a YouTube video via DNSwitch?

    A couple questions, what is meant by internet will only work with charles/fiddler running does that meaning browsing on the switch or...? And second do you need to have your computer on in order for this to work?

    Computer needs to be on and Charles/Fiddler running for internet to work on Switch (as in the redirect stuff and eShop)
    You can turn off the proxy on the Switch and it it will save the settings for later use if you want to use the eShop or other stuff normally

    The newer Browse Anywhere method needs the proxy on the Switch set to off to use eShop and other stuff. Turn it on when you want to browse the web (Fiddler needs to be running for it to work)

    I know, I'm hoping that with the new CVE-2016-4657 exploit we will be able to edit the whitelist/blacklist of the browser in order for it to just be a one time thing

    I'm trying this on my nintendo switch. I've setup fiddler and the proxi settings in the switch. When I try "Connect to this Network" it connects to network and goes for a while trying to connect to internet until I get a "Communication with server timed out." error.

    I tried disabling the firewall on my computer but that didn't work.

    Any Ideas?

    So, following the rules exactly for the "Browse Anywhere" method, when i get to step 3, none of those check boxes pop up, are they supposed to be there or what, it's just an empty area

    The checkboxes will appear after the FARX file is imported, the reason the list is blank is that you did not import the rules first.

    an easier method of enabling the Internet is to set the proxy to none on the Switch, it saves the proxy settings so next time you enable it, the settings will be there.

    ok so i got that stuff to show up, but the next step on the switch console where it says to add the ip and then 8888 under proxy server, nothing seems to be working for that. Any tips?

    use the IP address of your computer, do not use an IP address lookup website as it grabs your internet IP address, not your computer's address.

    press Windowskey+R then type "cmd"

    now type in "ipconfig /all"

    look for Ethernet Adapter or Wireless LAN adapter (if your computer is on wireless) and your computer address should be under IPv4 Address

    It probably starts with 192.168.

    just saying. Another way if on windows 10. Is just to go to network settings, wifi, Click the network, then scroll down to properties. Ether way works just thought I would throw it out there xd
