          Hello,

           

          you could look into the exact URL which is blocked and try to allow only the specific URL rather than allowing youtube.com completely. As an alternative you can look into the referer header to allow embedded videos only on specific websites.

           

          Best,

            Hey,

            many youtube videos are donloaded from ytimg.com. Just take a look with "policy tracing central"  or download a debugging ruleset from https://community.mcafee.com/thread/54270.

            Cheers,

            Thorsten

              Hi.

              We are using specific list of URLs to allow only specific YT videos.

               

              the basic for all videos are:

              URL                                                            meaning

              *s.ytimg.com/*                                          YT flash player + images

              *.youtube.com/crossdomain.xml          YT player cloud config

              *.youtube.com/videoplayback*               Flash Binary Stream for requested video

               

              then you can specify video ID in URL to allow specific video

              *.youtube.com/*b2ohHZMDnTE*

               

              So the rule action is: If URL matches in list ....

                Hi,

                there are also some rulesets in the online ruleset libraly available where you can manage youtube content based on youtube category or youtube uploader.

                Perhaps this is useful for you.

                Cheers,

                Thorsten
