Video filtering

With the video filter profile, you can filter YouTube videos by channel ID for a more granular override of a single channel, user, or video. The video filter profile is currently supported in proxy-based policies and requires SSL deep inspection.

  3. Optionally, enable Restrict YouTube access and select a setting (Moderate or Strict).

    config videofilter youtube-key
        edit 1
            set key ********
            set status enable
        next
