    Can you post a log of an attempted access to a youtube video via dansguardian. The logs are probably living in /var/log/dansguardian

    HI

    I know that this will be a silly question but why are you allowing youtube in a school some of the content is not acceptable and Lancsngfl block it as standard.

    This internet access is for staff only and they find some of the videos very useful for teaching

    They want it here as well but the needs and safety of the kids come first. What happens if a kid gets onto a staff account.

    Your configuration is correct. As ricki says, it's lancsngfl blocking youtube.

    We are not on ngfl we are an independant
    so why does it work when dansguardian is stopped

    Not here to argue about individual school policies
    We are into enhancing education here not stopping it

    Have you read this page?

    ConfigExamples/DynamicContent/YouTube - Squid Web Proxy Wiki

    Also, along with the above squid changes, you would need to make sure you whitelist the youtube.com domain normally and for file downloads and/or ensure you are not blocking the flv filetype or extension.

    If a student was on a staff account, them accessing Youtube would be the least of your worries.

    Dansguardian blocking youtube video

    Youtube redirects you to a different url when you go to a video. That url must be the exceptionurllist file. Use an editor like pico and add the following line in the exceptionurllist file which is in the dansguardian folder.
    youtube.com/videoplayback
