    An interactive TLS-capable intercepting HTTP proxy for penetration testers and software developers.

    I am using mitmproxy[https://mitmproxy.org/] to sniff http requests yet when using it with certain services such as netflix and youtube it somehow detects its a proxy and doesnt load. How does it know that? And is there anyway to circumvent it?
