Applies to all Barracuda Web Filters.



The website and Youtube videos are hosted on different domains. To allow these you will need to create a rule that allows access to both of these resources.

Place the following regular expression pattern in the Block / Accept > Url Patterns Allow list:


This will allow both the website and the media servers.
