When I say firewall restrictions, I am referring to DNS host lookup, so all YouTube searches resolve to restrict.youtube.com. And yes, from my testing, if Google permissions are set to unrestricted, and a user is logged into their Google account, they will have unrestricted access to YouTube regardless of the firewall or OpenDNS settings.

Follow up question, so if an OU is set for "no restrictions", or whatever it's called, but DNS is set to a strict level, as long as the user is logged in (and in that OU) they won't be redirected to the strict filter results ?

When you say firewall and OpenDNS restrictions, are you referring to the same DNS modification settings I linked to?  My only other option for configuration is setting up CNAME records (and I think new DNS Zones) in Windows Server 2012 DNS server.

Surprisingly an override at GAFE supercedes the Firewall and OpenDNS restrictions we put into place. This was a big one for us. We wanted to continue to control content for individuals inside our network who are not logged into, and therefore not subject to, the Google restrictions. So we wern't sure opening up the Google permissions would have any affect. But they do. We can control content for logged in and not-logged-in users on our network, but still allow access and approval rights through GAFE.

Philip,

Do the settings configured in the GAFE control panel for OU and filter level somehow override the DNS configured levels for those who are logged in w/ Chrome?  I'd assume no, especially if internal DNS servers are used, but what's your experience with this configuration?

Ben, 
We also implement host redirection at the firewall level. The settings are forced at the Google level, but also for any users on the network not actively logged into Google they are redirected for any YouTube search to the moderate level.

I started to look at this last week.  While I'm not focused on restriction levels yet, it looks like most of this can be controlled or overridden/approved by OU level.

What I'm wondering is if anyone's set this up using DNS or HTTP headers (link) and an additional filtering method, or is everyone just relying on students to be logged in to YT with the google account?  I'd assume on a non-chrome OS device, it's easy to work around this.

I have a question about this thread.  I've been doing some Youtube adjustments recently for the school.  Right now I have student OU's on moderate restrictions (pending strict restriction) and teachers on no restriction.  If I give a teacher sub OU permission to whitelist certain youtube videos, how do the teachers in said OU make that happen?  How can I make that happen?  The ability to do that would be extremely helpful.

Thanks!

We enable all teachers to be content approvers.  We also assigned grades k-5 the restrictive setting, grades 6-8 the moderate setting, and set grades 9-12 to unrestricted.  All adults are also unrestricted.

Any approver can remove an approved video/channel that they see, but they can't see who did the approving or removing; however, I can go to the console and see a list of all approved videos/channels and remove them if necessary.  I can also see who approved the video/channel in case a conversation is necessary.

Hope that helps,
Mike

Subject: YouTube settings

Wondering how others have the YouTube service in G Suite set ? Restricted, Moderate or Unrestricted or completely turned off for students ? Mostly 6-12 are my concerns. Do you have teachers set to approve content ?
