It wasn't very obvious, but I was editting the pages to make it look pretty.
I created a user shared area so now we have www.youtube.com/user/schoolname, within this I created a playlist, which wasn't working.
But when I then changed the settings on the www.youtube.com/user/schoolname page so that the default was the 'videos' rather than the 'feeds', suddenly when I loaded up the www.youtube.com/user/schoolname it showed up, whereas when it was on 'feeds' I just got an error that stated I wasn't allowed to view the page because we'd signed up to the youtube for schools service.
Now I just have to create a polite email to the teachers telling them how it all works.
Although, the students have now been able to access youtube for about 6 hours, and they managed to find it very quickly. I've already had a teacher complining that youtube is now useless for them....

I don't suppose anyone knows how to lock BBC worldwide out ?
There's too much comedy in there.
Forgive me if I'm being slow on the uptake, but what's your objective?
Okay, there are two ways to approach this.
The first thing I'd suggest is to look into HTTPS Interception. With this set up you'll be able to apply the header modification on both HTTP and HTTPS in just the same way.
Or, as you suggest, you can block the HTTPS version entirely. You would have to do this with a URL regex, which can match the protocol. In many ways this is the poor cousin of "proper" interception - it's likely to break features on Youtube, and has a fair to middling potential to confuse your users.
Feel free to follow this up in the Direct Support forum, or a PM, or contact our Support guys. I don't want to drag this thread too much OT
Hi Ian, I am interested in your ISAPI webfilter in order to use it with our TMG installation. Post 1
Well, my second post to allow send a PM
Or it would do if it worked properly.

Right... I've got the Youtube header modification Smoothwall rule working for students. Now a few questions on how to manage Youtube Education.
How do we actually manage Youtube Education? I've created a Google & Youtube account. During the account creation there was the opportunity to add the name of another account to administer it, but I can't see any way of doing that now. I'd like teachers to create their own Youtube accounts, then I could add them to the school 'account'. Or I could just give them all the username and password for the account - not ideal.
How do I manage the school's Youtube account. Is there such a thing?
Should the header mod be applied to all users, or just students? As I see it, if staff log into Youtube with the account I've created, they don't need the header mod.
If I log onto Youtube with the administrative account, I can add a video to a playlist so students can watch it. This is good, but not what I was expecting. I just want them to see a channel for our school - is this possible?
