    I've got the header working correctly through Smoothwall, with the new G3 update released to us (NYCC) yesterday. I then added two videos to a test playlist but students still see the 'this video is blocked, ask your admin to add it to a playlist' error even when directly linking to it.

    Anyone else come across this?

    You've definitely got the right hash value set?

    Hi Tom,

    Yes, you did have me wondering but yes it is correct...

    Our senior tech noticed this a few weeks ago, looks rather promising with the popularity of Youtube. The kids will be disappointed by the EDU only content, no music videos and stupid video clips floating around school

    I wouldn't count on that, I need to do a bit more Classroom Monitoring but when I was in the other day I did spot some videos that were on the pre-approved Edu stuff that I certainly found annoying and time wasting and I suspect the teachers will say the same thing so its certainly not as white as I would like it to be But at last by having it its probably going to solve a lot more issues than it makes at present

    There is a another program that is based on the Youtube EDU site, but it's locally hosted and you have full control of the content, comments etc, will find out what it is called tomorrow but it looked pretty good.
    I think it is Linux based, so it might be tricky to setup for someone with no Linux knowledge.

    Can any Bloxx users confirm/deny whether this works? I'm currently writing a proposal to replace our RM SmartCache with Bloxx, and this would be a huge +1 for it if it can do it...

    Would be really interested to see what Bloxx say about this. It wouldn't seem to be in their interest to allow this as they have their own media filter solution.

    Anyone have an answer from them yet?

    Yes, I asked them about this, and they said that they can do it.

    Did people sort out the invisible channels / playlists ?

    I've joined up and created a channel and a playlist for the school, but can't seem to find them at all.

    The rest of it is working,all nicely blocking away the annoying stuff, although staf fhave already asked why they can't get to the things they've put up themselves. Do they need to all create a YouTube account ?

    It's all a bit hashed at the moment. We've found the only reliable way to use it, is to give the teachers the username/password of the school's admin account to add videos to playlists, then direct link to them through Moodle.

    We've got a ticket open with Google, but they're not the quickest to respond to issues...

    Still can't search/view playlists by searching.
