Is it possible to block access to YouTube except of one channel?

Hello Mariusz,

 

Yes, it is possible. Can you add the following custom signatures?

 

F-SBID( --name "Youtube.Channel.Specific_Custom"; --protocol tcp; --flow from_client; --app_cat 12; --service HTTP; --pattern ".youtube.com"; --context host; --no_case; --pattern "channel/UC8pN3ndaZMNOezIy48sRpHA"; --context uri; --no_case; --no_case; --within 40; --weight 50; ) F-SBID( --name "Youtube.Tag_Custom"; --protocol tcp; --flow from_client; --app_cat 6; --service HTTP; --pattern ".youtube.com"; --context host; --no_case; --pattern "/watch?"; --context uri; --no_case; --no_case; --within 40; --weight 50; --tag set,Youtube.Tag; ) F-SBID( --name "Youtube.Channel.Video_Custom"; --protocol tcp; --flow from_server; --app_cat 6; --service HTTP; --pattern "channelId|22| content=|22|UC8pN3ndaZMNOezIy48sRpHA"; --context body; --no_case; --weight 150; --tag test,Youtube.Tag; --tag clear,Youtube.Tag; ) F-SBID( --name "Youtube.Channel.Block_Custom"; --protocol tcp; --flow from_server; --app_cat 6; --service HTTP; --pattern "ucid|22|:|22|"; --context body; --no_case; --pattern !"UC8pN3ndaZMNOezIy48sRpHA"; --context body; --no_case; --distance 0; --within 30; --weight 50; --tag test,Youtube.Tag; )

 

Change the texts in bold into the specific channel you are interested in allowing. Set the first 3 signatures to Monitor and the last one to Block. You will need to enable deep-inspection for the signatures to work. Let me know how it goes. Thank you.

Can this be combined with the YouTube restrict access feature to strict or moderate in the web filter? I have moderate restriction but want to allow one specific video that is currently blocked by the youtube filter.
