    Well you can use drony to authenticate a proxy though it doesn't seem to work with ntlm :-( (if the youtube app works with the edu filter). Or set a proxy in the wifi settings (if unauthenticated). I've not used learnpads.

    On the tablet's Chrome I can set it to force desktop version, which then works with YouTube Education
    Does it still do the loop if you turn the desktop setting off?

    Google really need to:

    1. Communicate changes through a blog/email/twitter. And progress on ongoing issues.
    2. Fix the ssl issue.
    3. Support proxies with authentication on android devices and support logging off.

    Though unfortunately a lot of schools/colleges etc are buying tablets and IT have to make them work even if its insecure and/or can't log user web activity.

    Yes it does. This is a ridiculous issue.

    You can set a proxy in an android tablet, but not an authenticated proxy. Which is part of the issue with the app, as SmoothWall requires user authentication in order to allow/deny content. LearnPad allows a proxy to be entered, which is for its own browser, but the YouTube app does not use this, it uses the tablet's proxy... which does not have any authentication. I have looked at Drony but I don't want to go down the route of setting this up each and every time.

    Regardless, I don't think the YouTube app is an appropriate solution so I'm not investigating that any further.

    I just want them to fix point 3.
