    Ok, I'm still not entirely clear here - you say you 'created a playlist under youtube for schools'. Do you mean you have logged in somewhere (either via the staff proxy, or offsite) using the same account you used to sign up for youtube for schools and created the playlist in that account?

    Yes - I went to youtube/schools, logged in there with the account I created at the beginning

    OK. In that case, this is definitely an issue outside of your control. That is the exact process I used (and use).

    However, knowing where to go now with it is somewhat difficult. There is a Google Group where you can post, but response times are slow and they aren't very helpful (Google themselves rarely answer). Does anyone have a contact number for someone at Youtube?

    If you want to rule out your ISP you could try it out yourself at home. Ask smoothwall nicely for a trial, set it up on an old PC and give it a go.

    I've just come back to this at my other school - and strangely, at this school the playlists are all different. I cannot add anything to any of them - the "add video" button doesn't work although I can do it directly from the clip itself. BUT the shortcut that I put on the desktop that appeared to work before the Easter holidays (I didnt say anything as I didnt believe it would last, and guess what??) doesn't work now at all.
    Of course I have a teacher asking to add a clip, too

    Exclamation

    I know everyone has done their best to help but I could really do with some more if anyone has any ideas.
    I log on to the staff proxy - so I can see youtube
    I sign in
    It presents me with a list of accounts - I have five now
    I choose one
    Click on the blue square thingy top right and then I can see three boxes: "watch later" "likes" and "school clips" (or whatever I have called it in this instance.)
    I click on "school clips" and there they are. The URL now reads youtube.com/playlist?list= etc etc
    Am I right in thinking that this is the one I should be using as a shortcut for the staff?
    Because if I am it doesn't work.
    If I switch account then the URL for the playlist is different.
    I don't understand why - I am logged on as the same user and have just switched accounts within that login if you see what I mean. Why would the playlist address be different and which one should I use?
    They all bring up "website not available" anyway.
    I have checked with SWGfL and whatever they had to do has been done

    I'm assuming "School Clips" is the playlist you've created? If so, that is correct.

    You say you have 5 accounts - the main thing is that you have to ensure the account you're using is the same one you used to get the schools filter ID (the gibberish string of numbers/letters you entered into SWGfL filtering, the one at the bottom of this page - https://www.youtube.com/account_school).

    You'll only have one "master" account - the one I just mentioned. This one is allowed to create playlists etc...

    The other accounts won't be relevant any more, so you should either delete them or ignore them.

    I only have one sign on though so I think that is OK? See pm for what I get AFTER I have logged on

    I don't know what you mean by "the one at the bottom of this page"
    Your link just brings up the sign in page

    When you created youtube for schools, you had to enter a code like "Xbgsfsdg-r45dsdfdbnfds" into the SWGfL filtering system.

    That page I linked, when logged in to that account, will list that code at the bottom, along with instructions on where to use it.

    Ah I see
    As I only have one log on, the one I originally created the whole shebang with, I think I am OK

    The Account you want to log into when it asks you is the same one that lets you also access youtube.com/account_school Think of it as the administrator account that lets you do everything.

    As stated here.

    Yes, as I thought. I only have one admin account but several channels, all of which have playlists, and all of which cannot be accessed no matter what I do.
    However, after I have logged on I am presented with a list of said channel (square blue icon) and the original account (head icon)
    If I click on the latter the only option is to create a new channel, I cannot see any channels or playlists already created

    When you're logged in to that account, if you click on the blue icon in the top right, can you click "Youtube settings"? If you can, does it have "Disconnect Google+ profile, and use your Youtube username" listed? (It should).

    We had far too many problems setting this up when we first looked into this back in December.

    The solution we ended up doing is just manually putting in exceptions in smoothwall for the various youtube URLs that we want people to be able to access in school. It's not the nicest solution, but we found it to be one of the only ones that consistently work for us.
