Allow youtube

Hello!
We have a fortgate 100D with FortiOS v5.6.9 build1673 (GA)
In the Web Filter "Bandwidth Consuming" is "Streaming Media and Download" blocked.
In the URL Filter I allowed youtube, but I always get the message "Web Page Blocked"!
How do I unlock youtube?

Even when a URL is "Allow"ed with a Static URL filter, it still needs to go through the category filters and would be blocked. You need to choose "Exempt" for those URLs to skipp the rest.
I don't know in your country but in the US the youtube content comes from "*googlevideo.com" so we need to add it too to allow youtube. When you check Web Filter log after allowing "All" Local Traffic Log, you can see why it's blocked or "passthrough".

Thanks.  That was the same issue I was facing.
