Once Restricted YouTube has been implemented it will have the following effect on your YouTube experience:
Restricted YouTube can be implemented in several ways, detailed on the Google support website. In addition Smoothwall has developed our own content modification which we recommend as the easiest method to implement and manage Restricted YouTube.
Smoothwall provide a content modification which is the recommended method of enforcing Restricted YouTube. The content modification works by rewriting the HTTPS connect header for a number of YouTube domains to restrict.youtube.com. Implementing this content modification does not require a HTTPS decrypt and inspect policy to be in place.
To enforce Restricted YouTube simply create a new content modification policy under ‘Guardian >> Content Modifications >> Policy Wizard’:
Action: Apply – “YouTube Restricted Mode”
Using this method will force all users on your network to use Restricted YouTube – regardless of whether or not they are logged in. The only exception is domain administrators who should continue to have an unrestricted YouTube experience.
Restricted YouTube can be enforced for all users on your domain by changing the appropriate settings on the Google apps admin console. This only applied to users logged into your domain, Restricted YouTube will not be applied to signed out users.
This checkbox must be enabled for the system to work. Other permissions granted via the google apps admin console take precedent (e.g. domain administrator)
