    For anyone using MS Forefront TMG (2010), I have written a ISAPI webfilter that will enable this feature. It also enforces Safety Mode, if required, for staff who have an authorised, unrestricted YouTube account.

    Although I have written this for TMG, it should be easy enough to adapt to work on ISA 2004 / 6 (32 bit platforms).

    If you would like a copy, send me a PM and I'll fire it off to you!

    Iain.

    Tried to set up access for my teaching staff but despite adding it to my allowed list SWGfL filtering continues to block it. SWGfL Support asked to investigate if there is a way around this.

    Our LEA uses NetSweeper which (i think) is causing the issues here...

    I did have it working (to a fashion) yesterday but today it doesn't work at all...

    Has anyone else using NetSweeper got it working successfully?

    Chatting with EMBC today there is work going on with NetSweeper on this, and that should then be available to other regional NetSweeper (and presumably local) setups. I don't have anything firm on when yet, but they are getting on with it.

    I got Dansguardian working via the URL rewrite hack.

    Edit /etc/dansguardian/lists/urlregexplist and add the following:
    "(^http://[^/]*\.youtube\.[^?]*\?)(.+&)?(edufilter=[^&]*)"->"\1\2"
    "(^http://[^/]*\.youtube\.[^?]*\?)"->"\1edufilter=yourkeygoeshere&"
    I also redirected the standard youtube.com homepage to youtube.com/education - so all the normal (and now blocked) video links don't appear. Redirecting to the education page everytime sorta shows everyone that it's not the "normal" youtube access.
    "(^http://[^/]*\.youtube\.com$)"->"\1/education"
    Now Youtube just need to allow for proper proxy caching!

    What version of dans are you running. I put everything like you said and not working, in fact I was very close to what you put.

    Thanks @Driver. I'll see if I can hack my Squid back-end to get this to work.

    Got it working. I have added two additional accounts, which I believe should have full access to youtube right? But they don't still can only watch education videos.

    I'm sure Lightspeed users will have seen the feature already when YouTube Edu was in Beta....but just incase.
    Paste your school I'd into content filter properties, YouTube Edu properties box. Then enable YouTube Edu checkbox on each policy needed.

    Done

    For your entertainment - here is how to do it on Smoothwall Guardian3, courtesy of @OB1.

    Youtube.com/Education Support - YouTube

    Sadly you will need the as-yet unreleased update, likely to be called guardian3 update14, early-to-mid Jan.

    Just a word of advice for those opening up youtube. Make sure you have https covered (your filter may not be doing the required transforms for youtubes secure site), and do this in a phased way - open up staff (if they weren't already) first, or an older group of students, or a single room.

    Talking with some of the great and the good in education it seems there's a lot of "buzz" about this feature, and some of you will probably come under pressure from teaching staff who "get it" in the new year. I know you will be cautious, but I just thought i'd add a reminder for those still full of xmas spirit come the new term...
