youtube not working because recognized as google-video-base

L3 Networker


when we browse to youtube and try to watch a video there is an error displayed and the video does not start.

This only happens when using Internet Explorer.

When i take google chrome it works.

I looked to the traffic log and see that google-video-base is blocked by our "deny all-cleanup rule". Youtube base is allowed and matches when i use chrome to access youtube but with IE another app seems to be recognized.

Have you seen this happening and have another way to solve but to allow google-video-base?

Running OS 5.0.5 with latest dynamic software updates.
