Hi folks,

I work in a school with filtered internet. Our IT people were asked to provide access to staff to YouTube but when they allowed it through the network, the website itself loads but the videos themselves do not. Can this be fixed?

To add a little bit of context - and I'm sorry about the overall lack of clarity - we have two Wifi channels, one for staff and one for students. The staff one should have YouTube access but the student one would not have access. The internet is filtered through a 'sonic' router I believe.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

They probably have filtered the videos. The IT team need to check their filters and make sure there are no adblocks extensions. But this falls on them.

Would the filters be a slightly different address that they need to unblock? Also: if the filters run adblockers that'll stop the videos?

Thanks for your help.

Quite possibly, i have blocked video ads, but so far I haven't blocked YouTube by accident.
