    To bypass what? What is it that you are trying to accomplish?

    OpenDNS Home does not include features such as an "unclock" code or anything else that would temporarily override or bypass your block settings.

    You have two options, unblock the domain in question, or configure the device that you want to access this website so that it is not using OpenDNS.

    There are different ways that this is addressed in different pay products, but it's not a part of the free, home, product.

    "is there a method to bypass the website or change the DNS server on a specific computer?"

    Yes, you say it.  You bypass OpenDNS by configuring another DNS service on this specific computer, as also mattwilson9090 said.

    Yes, I still have one question how do I configure the DNS service specifically on my device? I have already tried changing the IPv4 servers but that dosen't work.

    You didn't say what kind of device you have or what operating system it's running so it's impossible to tell you this. In general you would find this somewhere under network settings.

    If you want something more specifically use whatever you use to search the internet (Bing, Google, whatever), and search for "changing dns servers for xxxxx" where xxxx is  the kind of device you have or the operating system it's running.

    As for changing the IPv4 servers, I have no idea how you did that or what you mean by "it doesn't work" so I can't comment any further.

    I currently run a Windows 10 operating system and the IPv4 source can be found below

    https://www.wikihow.com/Bypass-OpenDNS-Internet-Security

    I believe this section is the part which explains why I cant change DNS services 

    This will not work if your router has been configured to block all DNS requests except OpenDNS on Port 53.

    Great, these are the instructions you need to use.  Does something still not work?  What exactly is the evidence for not working?

    OpenDNS is a DNS based service. As such it knows nothing about websites, webpages, URL's, content, videos, or anything else that is not only and strictly a domain. It can do nothing about the specific video you linked to unless you were to blacklist or whitelist either youtube.com or www.youtube.com (or block the categories it belongs to).

    As for bypassing, we've already given you general instructions on your options. Unless you have specific questions there really isn't anything else we can tell you.

    The video I linked is a video about forcing users to use OpenDNS servers block port 53 which makes it so that users are unable to change DNS providers I wanted to know if you could bypass this?

    Yes, you can bypass also this by adding the following entries to your local hosts file like this:

    172.217.12.206  youtube.com
    172.217.10.14 www.youtube.com youtube-ui.l.google.com

    You may need to use different IP addresses and to add more entries.

    Thank you however for some reason when I visit the blocked website it requires an admin and password the things I've typed are below.

    (ip) www.example.com

    (ip) exampe.com

    Thank you and merry christmas depending on your time zone or religion.

    Sorry, I don't understand.  What is your website's IP address to do with the YouTube video?  What are these two different iP addresses?  Do you talk about 172.217.12.206 and 172.217.10.14?  You find them out by raising DNS lookups, as usual.

    nslookup youtube.com.
    nslookup www.youtube.com.

    The nslookup commands are not to unlock anything, just do find the IP address for your entries into the hosts file.

    As I said above, you may need to add more entries for other domains to your local hosts file.  See here a list of queried domains taken when I visited this video URL.

    www.youtube.com
    r2---sn-4g5e6nld.googlevideo.com
    s.ytimg.com
    yt3.ggpht.com
    i.ytimg.com
    i9.ytimg.com

    Alternatively to adding entries to your hosts file, use a VPN service or a web proxy.

    Yes,Thank you however I already understand this I used the nslookup commands but they give me the OpenDNS block addresses so I use a DNS lookup website, however after I get my addresses and add them to the hosts file it still dosent work (also if I change the hosts on the hosts file it dosent effect the nslookup cmd on command prompt for some reason)

    "they give me the OpenDNS block addresses so I use a DNS lookup website"

    This is not needed.  You simply use another DNS service like Google Public DNS.

    nslookup www.youtube.com. 8.8.4.4

    "after I get my addresses and add them to the hosts file it still dosent work"

    You may not have caught all needed domain names.  Find them here:
    https://dashboard.opendns.com/stats/all/blockeddomains

    "if I change the hosts on the hosts file it dosent effect the nslookup cmd"

    Yes, nslookup doesn't use the hosts file but the DNS service being configured or specified.  If you want to see the end result including local resolver cache and hosts file, you better use ping.

    ping www.youtube.com

    Thank you,However I don't believe this is the case as I've managed to change the hosts of the same website with a different address before and as for the using other DNS service i used the following command, nslookup www.example.com 8.8.4.4, and I received the OpenDNS block address, however when using the ping command I was given the proper address however when added to hosts it was still blocked.

    "i used the following command, nslookup www.example.com 8.8.4.4, and I received the OpenDNS block address"

    This is not possible unless something routes your DNS traffic to OpenDNS despite specifying Google DNS.

    "when added to hosts it was still blocked"

    You may have to flush the browser cache and the local resolver cache from an elevated command prompt first:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    Or, as I said, you did not catch all needed hostnames, or this blocking is not caused by OpenDNS.

    If you want, you can copy & paste the complete plain text outputs of the following commands to here to give me additional ideas about what could be wrong:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.
    nslookup www.youtube.com.
    ping www.youtube.com
    netsh interface ipv4 show config

    Yes,When using the ping command on example.com a proper address is given however,when using the ping command on www.example.com a block address (146.112.61.104) is given however when flushing they give me proper addresses the command below dosen't work and has a error message and the last command shows me "WiFi things"

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.

    This is the output of one command only, maybe two.

    "*** google-public-dns-a.google.com can't find debug.opendns.com.: Non-existent domain"

    What command was behind this output?  It seems you queried debug.opendns.com via Google Public DNS which does not know about debug.opendns.com.
    So yes, google-public-dns-a.google.com cannot find debug.opendns.com, that's just normal.  No new insights here...

    Further, I see for interface "Wi-Fi":

    Statically Configured DNS Servers: 127.0.0.1

    What does this localhost address point to?  What DNS service is behind it?  I would have expected to either see your router's address 192.168.0.1 there, or the OpenDNS resolver addresses.

    If you post command outputs, you post them including the command and the complete output.  Else it is very hard to comment on anything.
