Filtering based on YouTube channel

Video filtering can be configured to filter specific YouTube channels. The following identifiers are used for YouTube channels:

given <channel-id>, affect on:

www.youtube.com/channel/<channel-id>

www.youtube.com/user/<user-id>

matches channel-id from <meta itemprop="channelId" content="<channel-id>">

www.youtube.com/watch?v=<string>

matches channel-id from <meta itemprop="channelId" content="<channel-id>">

In a YouTube channel filter profile, the default action is set to monitor when there is no match. Logging is also disabled by default.

config videofilter youtube-channel-filter
    edit <id>
        set default-action {block | monitor | allow}
        set log {enable | disable}
    next
end

In the following example, a YouTube channel ID (UCJHo4AuVomwMRzgkA5DQEOA) is blocked, and the video filter is applied to a policy.
