In an explicit deployment, YouTube access is restricted for all users by blocking “youtube.com” (contains or exact match) with no SSL interception. Users trying to access www.youtube.com from browsers are blocked; however, users can access the YouTube videos using the Google Translate website.
If the user clicks the new link, the browser loads intended YouTube clip.
When users access youtube.com through Google Translate, the client machine does not make requests to youtube.com. Instead, it gets the video content directly from googlevideo.com.
Block googlevideo.com in your policies to prevent users from accessing YouTube videos from Google translate website. Alternatively, you can block URL category Audio/Video Clips instead of just youtube.com (this is not applicable if the users are allowed to any Audio/Video Clips categories).
