    Default YouTube blocked in BSNL ?

    Today I am not able to access youtube using BSNL broadband. It is getting redirected to a page with this messsage
    "The site you have chosen has been categorized as: Criminal Skills


    Contact your Internet administrator if you require access to this site."

    It is same for any youtube video.

    I do not think YouTube is banned in BSNL. But certain sections could be.

    just now they have corrected it. I think while trying to block one video they blocked all videos

    BSNL don't block any sites.check the settings of your antivirus/anti-adware/anti-spyware/IE policies.you are not using trend micro/mcafee/norton internet secirity AV by any chance because sometimes they block certain sites giving such messages.

    Yes, I second Whitestar. It is definitely some application on your system and nothing to do with youtube blocking by BSNL. If BSNL blocks something, it will come in the papers. Example would be the blogging sites being blocked....ringabell?

    Youtube.com works perfectly fine for me. Maybe, its the indian version of Youtube, which you are using is having some problem since its relatively new website division of Youtube.

    new users including myself having IP 117.x.x.x are not having any problems with youtube but only old customers with IP 59.x.x.x i think.also netsweeper is a web filtering software used by corporations so it may be possible that BSNL is indeed using it on their older network maybe to test something.
