    Your domain certainly has one. I think if you have a Google account now you also have to have a Google+ account.

    OK. I think what has happened is that your account has become "divorced" from your identity (everything uses Google+ identities now it seems). I couldn't get it to work without it being linked to Google+.

    Is there an option to enable it, in Youtube settings?

    Not that I can see
    Still not convinced because it doesnt work in my other school either and I know that I followed the instructions - in fact I had someone else with me at my other school and we sorted it together.

    If I log on I can see this

    So - given that I have logged on with my only account, created a channel and a playlist as you can see - what do I now do to enable the school to see that playlist? Maybe I am doing the wrong thing?

    You shouldn't need to "enable" anything. Requests made under the proxy should have the header sent along with them so YouTube knows who you are and how to handle the request.

    I've asked before, but haven't had confirmation yet I don't think. Do you have the same YouTube for school ID in https://www.youtube.com/account_school as you do in the SWGfL filtering system?

    EDIT: The code at https://www.youtube.com/account_school should be the one "q4Gm0nw1WCVmF4Q8wqhFQ" as listed in that second screenshot.

    Thats what confuses me, unless Smoothwall are doing some fancy trickery I did the header modification method and the school code does't appear in the web browser address bar at any point. From my understanding that is the URL re-write method, that should work regardless.

    Perhaps thats not setup correctly at SWGfL

    Code:
    Step 1
    Choose one of the following two options, depending on which works for your school's network:
    Option A: Add new HTTP header rule
    Please modify your hardware filter or proxy server settings so that all outgoing traffic to youtube.com contains the following customised HTTP header. The ID to use in the HTTP header configuration, written below, is unique to your school's network only. If your school is blocked at the district level, this HTTP header is then unique to the district network.
    
    X-YouTube-Edu-Filter:YOURCODEHERE
    
    Option B: Create URL parameter rewrite rule
    If your firewall or filter does not support HTTP header modification, please rewrite all outgoing URLs to youtube.com by appending the parameter “edufilter” at the end.
    
    Example:
    
    http://youtube.com/?edufilter=YOURCODEHERE
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=gM95HHI4gLk&edufilter=YOURCODEHERE
    Exclude the &edufilter parameter from these file types: .css, .gif, .png, .js, .xml

    I did try and answer but that link doesn't take me anywhere with any information on it?

    If I go to youtube I get redirected to the front page of youtube for education and SWGfL have confirmed that this means that I have set up the header correctly.
    How would you get to the playlist from there? I don't want it going directly to the playlist as the teachers will need to access youtube for edu for other clips. Can someone explain this? Should I be able to see the playlist on the front page of youtube for edu?
    PLEASE CAN SOMEONE TELL ME EXACTLY HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO WORK
    I am beyond confused now. Can't sleep for worry over this as I am sure it is my stupid mistake but I just can't see it
    I followed the instructions on how to create the account to the letter and passed on the details to SWGfL

    Ok, the fact that it is sending you to that page, without an option to "go to your account" means that the account you are using is not the one set up for youtube for schools.

    You have a choice: Figure out the account that was used to sign up, or follow the sign up instructions again, and replace the youtube for schools string on the SWGfL filtering system. I'd recommend the latter.

    Can you take a screen shot of this page
    Code:
    https://www.youtube.com/schools
    For me it shows two buttons "Manage my account" and "Create a new account"

    EDIT: Yeah what he said. ^^

    SWGfL doesn't use header changing, it uses the option B - the URL parameter one.

    Hmm
    I really can't see how that can be. I have my original notes in front of me - I printed out the instructions and ticked them off, writing things in as I went. And there is the account written down

    Please can someone explain the youtube for edu and playlist thing though?
    I know someone said they had a shortcut to the playlist - is there another way then?
