EDIT: No i lie! I'm telling porkies there, my ISA server is on 2003R2, the only 2003 server left on my network! That took me by surprise haha. This is one of those very rare occasions where i'm glad i didn't upgrade

Don't think it will be possible adding a HTTP Header (well its beyond me anyways)
I'm looking at the dansguardian urlregexplist config at the moment to see if its possible to rewrite the youtube.com to the <youtube for schools url that you get provided>
It definitely looks like it should work but again looking at the examples already in there for google safe search its a bit beyond me at the moment lol!
EDIT: I appear to have hit a problem.... I've added my personal account as an authorised user but when i log in it does nothing and i'm still restricted? anyone else having a similar issue?
Just tested on an admin account, changed proxy settings so i was going out of the filtered one and when i sign in as myself, as user that's in the authorised users list, it appears to login ok, then "Sign in" is still showing in the top right but if i click sign in again it just seems ot refresh the page, and everything else is still filtered..........:/
EDIT2: Maybe i was being impatient i can now see the thumbnails and browse for other videos and it has logged me in properly, but i notice even as an authorised teacher you can't play any video unless it's added to the education playlist. I thought teachers would be properly unfiltered in this method......this could cause a few problems for us as currently teachers are allowed unfiltered access to youtube :x

I've got the content working with the filters for educational content only but having issues playing the 'playlist'. The first video will play but no more - obviously the workaround is one playlist per video but this seems very counter-intuitive.
As for the account, I created one specifically for the school that uses my work email address (which I should be able to change) and this seems to work fine.
Ah I've not tried adding a bunch of videos yet, i'll have to test that and see if i get the same problem.
So using an account that's in the "Authorised Users" list on yours does that authorised user get full access to everything as if there was no filtering at all? As i can browse the lists of videos and view everything about the site in an unfiltered mananer except i can't actually view videos until they're added to the playlist.
I'm getting the same results, the administrator can search all videos (access to the site is not unfiltered - it appears the search all options become available) but the additional 'authorized' members cant get in with it just redirecting when sign-in is clicked.
I'm not convinced by it all yet, the access to the educational content is good I just feel atm there are too many open ends and it does seem a pita to configure...
anywho, I'll keep trying and see where I get.
Smoothwall users... I see my comments generated some support tickets
Your current choices are 1. implement as a URL modification (which the blocklist guys will help with) or 2. Wait til mid-jan for the next G3 update which brings header adding.
Also, it should be noted that it is possible to only do this for some groups (or locations) in smoothie, thus avoiding the "staff cant get full access" issue.
edit: of course reading on I see that @GrumbleDook has inevitably beaten me to it
sounds interesting many thanks
Censornet have an update that allows you to use the modify header option. Works for us now.
