Block or allow individual video
There could be a situation where a school may want to block videos by Cardi B. On the rule configuration page under Policy Manager, enter the URL of a Cardi B YouTube video into the blocked list. A window will pop up and let you select whether you want to block or allow:
- The individual video
- The video’s channel
- The video’s category
- Videos that contain certain keywords in their titles. For instance, entering the words “Cardi B” and “wap” will block all videos with any of these keywords in their titles. Separate the words and phrases with commas.
Block or allow by category
While you can block the entire Streaming media and download category, which would include YouTube, you can additionally choose to allow or block specific YouTube categories. This flexibility will allow for a customization of YouTube that can be modified per rule. Simply check the box next to the YouTube category you would like to allow or block.
For example, to allow all streaming media sites except YouTube, but allow any YouTube videos that fall under the YouTube category of Education, set the following:
- Uncheck filter category of Streaming Media and Download
- Add youtube.com to the Blocked List
- Check Education in the Allowed YouTube Categories
