Streaming media

Created: 02 Sep 2012 | 4 comments

Hi Sir,

How can I block streaming media ?

I created 1 policy in which I monitor only Search Engine catagory, and rest all the catagories are blocked.

and same has been done. but whenever I access any of the search engine site say yahoo.com, I'm able to do.. but I would like to know how can I block all videos under that website ? although I blocked streaming media, but I'm able to play all those videos.

So please help me to block all those videos.

Thanks sir for giving me such a valuable time.

But above links are provided by you is not as helpful.

As I mention earlier I blocked Streaming Media but I'm able to play Videos on website like yahoo,msn etc..

Note : to block such videos I created 1 blacklist entry by specific to a video extension and after that I'll be able to block videos.

To check the Consistency on same blacklist, I nevigate to some other sercch engines and I found , 1 search engine named " Indiatimes.com " on which I'm able to play all the videos and same has been not opened on other search engines like yahoo and msn. for troubleshootung this , I came to know that videos that has been posted on Indiatimes.com are of .flv format which can't include on video extensions on blacklist, so I edited the same but still I'm able to open all those videos on same website.

Please help me into this ..

There are many ways to stream media, so this is essentially not possible at this time.
