blocking Youtube completely

I am trying to block YouTube on all platform (PC, IOS and Android) in our network.  I created ab with the following block URL Patterns:

 

 

Youtube.com
www.youtube.com
googlevideo.com
gvt1.com
r3---sn-ni5f-t8gz.gvt1.com
r2---sn-ni5f-t8gs.gvt1.com
ytimg.com
r3---sn-ni5f-t8gs.gvt1.com
s.youtube.com
ytimg.l.google.com

 

Any browser base in all platform was successfully blocked, however app on both IOS and Android continue to work.  On occasion, the preview of video will not show up, but streaming still persists once the user selects any videos.  Packet capturing showing block on the list of URL above but the app continues to work.  

 

Has anyone successfully block youtube?

 

thank you

Kind of a big deal

Re: blocking Youtube completely

I would try using the L7 Firewall rules to do this.

Re: blocking Youtube completely

I have the same problem and layer 7 FW rules don't block mobile apps. I still haven't found the solution to this problem.
