    YouTube forcing low quality video across network

    Is there any way in a school, that all videos played on YouTube will be forced to use the lowest quality in Internet Explorer without having to use another browser? Want to reduce bandwidth use.

    I think smoothwall is looking at adding this as a feature if it has not already. I think you would need a content inspection system like smoothwall upstream to enforce it though. @tom_newton was the one talking about it I think.

    Only if you have a youtube account.

    And only if everyone uses it.


    and even then, sometimes it doesn't work.

The majority are high or low quality though.

    Smoothwall guardian has a beta feature in it to restrict HD content.
