YouTube mobile app

L2 Linker

We have YouTube blocked for some users, but it appears they can still play videos via the mobile app version of YouTube (both Android and IOS)

Testing this myself I find that blocking is intermittent and if you hit play a few times the video eventually streams.  Correlating with the logs it appears that some of the traffic gets identified as the YouTube application and blocked, some of it as generic SSL with a certificate domain in

Anyone else come across this, and found a solution (that doesn't involved decrypting all SSL going to Google's IP ranges)?
