YouTube Education redirect loop
Just a shout to see if anyone else is having this issue.
We use YouTube Education, which has been working up until yesterday. Students and staff now receive a "too many redirects" page on Chrome, IE just tells the user that the page cannot be displayed.
We use Smoothwall and have the header modification.
I thought I was alone in the issue as nobody on El Geek has said anything, but this is exactly the experience we're having: https://productforums.google.com/for...on/2yVgzwYM2hE.
As stated in that forum, the issue seems to be that youtube.com/education is now redirecting to youtube.com/channel/UC3yA8nDwraeOfnYfBWun83g, then the header modification attempts to take the user back to youtube.com/education and the loop continues.
If you click a link of an authorised video, it takes you straight there and plays fine. The same seems to be for any channels that are authorised, it's just the home page that isn't working. We can access our school's channel and access our videos fine. It also works in the staff room where YouTube does not receive the modification.
Looks like YouTube have changed something. This post is either to make you aware or let you report your experience.
