Watchguard Firebox blocking YouTube

We have a Watchguard X550e. I have created a new HTTP-Proxy to allow YouTube. In the HTTP exceptions, I have added:-

*.youtube.com*
*.ytimg.com*

I've also added video/x-flv to the content types, but even so, when trying to play a YouTube video, the following is displayed "An error occurred. Please try again later."

Have you turned on logging for the Proxy Policy?  Also, Is there any webblocking service enabled on top of the Proxy?

I have just turned on the logging, but I do not have the webblocker enabled on this policy

If you open a new browser session to youtube, do the logs show any deny packets?  You could also try adding the entire video/* to the allowed content types.  Are you doing an allow if matched, and av scan in not in the list or a drop.

Is this for all computers?  Could it possibly be a browser issue?  Do other video sites work, hulu/viveo/etc.

I've found my problem. The IPs belonged to more than one HTTP Proxy, and as such the more restrictive policy was taking precedence.

Thanks a lot Vervenetworks.

I'd the same problem in my office for some of the users who are in the same policy. After added Video/*, the issue got resolved.

Thanks again.
