    According to YouTube's ToS, such content should not be found there, or at least not for minors. One need to login as an adult to see such content. If it can be accessed freely, report it to YouTube to get it removed.

    Also, OpenDNS as DNS service sees only domain names from your DNS lookups, not any other objects like URLs, web content, images, videos or what, so therefore there is no way to block content on this level by a DNS service. You can block just domain names.

    I know this is an old post.

    To: rotblitz

    No really... you tube let anyone to see erotic movies showing sexual acts. All one has to do is go to collection that has a lot of erotic movies and you tube will ask for id check, but if you click on a movie subtitle linked in the channel the movie will open with NO id check.

    Caution: this link is a you tube erotic movie no suitable for minors depicting sexual acts !!!.... it will open freely....

    Besides that there is no place that I can see where one can denunce the movie or ask for it to be removed.

    Well, I only referred to their ToS of at that time, from two years ago, with no intention to consider a possibly different reality.  At this time a report page still existed at YouTube.  If you think they do not adhere to their own ToS, feel free to involve a lawyer to make it a court case.  You'll certainly win and may make some money out of it.

    No matter, you missed my second point which was the essential one.  That leaves you with the option to block some or all YouTube domains with OpenDNS, or to use a different (local) appliance to filter more granular.

    Hi pdmagnet2,

    Rotblitz is correct, our service currently filters domains based on the domain names. If Youtube had subdomains their content, then our service will be able to block it. Although it is not listed in their ToS, Youtube does age restrict content -- https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2802002

    "Besides that there is no place that I can see where one can denunce the movie or ask for it to be removed."

    There's a link on the page Dominic linked to which leads you to https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2802027
    Here they explain how to report inappropriate content.  This can be theoretically done for every video.

    In order to filter inappropriate content on YouTube, you switch on Safety Mode as of https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/174084
    As YouTube belongs to Google, this is essentially the same as Google's SafeSearch and enables/disables the latter too.

    I divided my network at home, I have one range that runs OpenDNS and the other one that doesn't. If this is the case, you need to have 2 SSIDs with two different IP pools. Don't know if this helps you out.

    I recently bought a router that does this easily. For kids devices you check "YouTube Restricted Mode" in router config, and it'll enforce kids safe videos. You can leave this option unchecked for yourself, so you are not limited to kids videos only. Check out their web site here: http://www.pcwrt.com.
