Whitelist youtube link


I would like to know if it is possible to whitelist a certain link of youtube but not the itself. Say this link: Is it possible to whitelist that specific link but not so that users can't browse the site.

We can whitelist the url only but not the above extended link.

Thanks for the reply.

We define the whitelisting in Linux because we are using Linux as proxy. Whitelisting youtube is not a problem but what I want is to whitelist one video only of youtbe and block the rest in Linux. We created a file named "whitelist" and every urls that we define there are given with http_access allow.

Please help me to whitelist one youtube video in Linux.

I hope you are using Squid proxy. Check the ACL type: url_regex
