This feature is not yet available.  You can see a lengthy discussion here.

You can attempt to do this with some of the suggestions on regex for the url content.  Bear in mind much of this now automatically runs on ssl so you would also need to deploy ssl decryption for that type of solution.

With using the default/built-in features, I'm not sure that we can do this..

Re: only educational videos allow

This is only possible if you know which videos you would like to allow. There is not a way to make it dynamic.

You can create a Custom URL Category and then add the URL's of the videos, then add it to your URL profile.

Objects->Custom Objects->URL Category

Add the URL's you want to allow.

Then adjust the new Category within your URL Filtering security profile:

Objects->Security Profiles->URL Filtering

and set the appropriate action:

I like Alert instead of allow because it logs the action.
