Anybody try to block Invidious yet?

L1 Bithead

The students in our school district have discovered that Invidious sites (https://invidious.io ) are able to circumvent the Youtube content blocking we had in place with our Google Chromebooks.  Has anybody else experienced this yet and/or discovered a solution for 'blocking' Invidious?

Thanks,

Hello,

Have you tried URL filtering these sites out? Create a custom URL category and set it to block?

 

Just a thought.

@Bill_Rodewald,

Since they host the list of public instances on their website, you would be able to script pulling these domains on a regular basis and using the API to update your custom URL category easily. They actually host the instances list via JSON HERE
