YouTube blocked?
« on: August 04, 2019, 05:28:16 AM »
So one thing i have noticed is that YouTube is blocked unless i use the actual YouTube app.  If I disconnect from my wifi and turn off the omni VPN then it works fine.
Is there anyone else experiencing this or is it just my network?
This is the error text i get:
      This video is restricted. Try signing in with a Google Apps account.
And the attachment is a screenshot of the error.
Those who fail to code are doomed to repeat themselves.

A link to the video in question would probably be helpful or,
are you saying that all YouTube videos are being blocked?

I'm not seeing this issue here.

The only time I've ever seen that error message was when I was trying AdGuard Home's Safe Search feature. But it would give me that message even if I was using the YouTube app.

I get it on all YouTube videos.

I'm not using AsGuard's filters.

This happens to my wife on her device as well.  If we use the actual YouTube app, the videos play fine.

What is interesting is that it doesn't happen on my laptop, just on my mobile devices, iPhone, iPad etc.  This makes me think it may be more related to the Omni VPN than the Omni device itself.

You'll need to wait for Avast to answer as to the possible Omni interference.

@Republic of Haney - Do you have set up some content filters? Is youtube blocked also on Family Guardian app, or only on Family Member app?
