    Youtube header in smoothwall

    Im trying to get this to work and not having much luck.

    Ive tried to follow the online video on smoothwalls tv channel on youtube but the GUI looks completely different.

    I have tried the following:
    Added a custom category in...
    Guardian >> Policy objects >> User Defined
    Name: Youtube-Header
    Clicked Advanced - Add Headers to Override: *add x-youtube-edu-filter: {my youtube education string}*
    Click Save

    Added a new policy in:
    Guardian >> Content Modification >> Manage Policies
    1. Who - Yr7-11 Students
    2. What - Youtube
    3. Where - Everywhere
    4. Action - Apply - Youtube-Header
    Click Confirm

    What do i do now? Am i on the right track? Has anyone got a quick how to on what i need to do please?

    Thanks

    Hmm can't really see anything different from our setup and works for us. So seems you are doing it right.

    Am i right in thinking that the youtube user ID is needed?

    Is there any documents on how to get this setup from scratch? I might have the wrong account setup on youtube. I just dont know!!

    Yeah you need to put your ID in the header.

    When you say its not working, do you mean its not redirecting or is YouTube inaccessible?

    What happens if you sign in and go here? http://www.youtube.com/account_school - it should have your school settings.

    Also, not sure if this is required, but always worth restarting the web proxy?

    Its working now, thats what i needed to do, create a school account on top of a general youtube account.
    EDIT: Youtube defaults to youtube.com/education however if a student searches for minecraft it brings up all the minecraft videos and can view them.

    Surely thats not right is it? I would have thought youtube would block all videos and you tell it what to allow?

    Interesting, if I try and view a minecraft video I get "This video is unavailable with the Education Filter enabled. To view this video, the site network administrator will need to add it to a playlist".

    Have you edited/added any subscriptions or are you using a blank subscription list?

    Are you inspecting HTTPS traffic? The header can't be added to a request that's encrypted if you're not inspecting.

    Ah, ill need to add youtube to the HTTPS inspection then? So if i have the following:
    Who: Everyone
    What: YouTube
    Where: Everywhere
    When: Always
    Action: Decrypt and inspect
    Policy Enabled

    Hopefully that should work.
    EDIT: That still works.

    I noticed the message Warning - To decrypt and inspect web content, users' browsers must have the Guardian CA certificate imported into their certificate store.
    How would i get the certificate to BYOD devices?

    Ah, BYOD.
    There's a simpler solution (thanks @CJF).
    Paste the regex below into a custom category under 'URL Patterns' and block it for everyone you don't want to have unfettered access to youtube.
