    Porn is not legitimate on YouTube. And OpenDNS does not know anything. It just has domain names categorized.

    Your better approach is to follow what has been provided by the providers themselves.

    Thanks but this doesn't answer the question. Also, I just used porn as an example, could be any blocked category. I dont have a DNS server at home, I use OpenDNS for filtering

    I did not expect that you still wanted your question answered.

    If I have 'pornography' blocked for example, but youtube unblocked, does opendns know enough that if a video that fits that category is played, will it get blocked? Or will it be allowed because 'video sharing' is not blocked?

    If the domain is categorized as pornography, then it will be blocked, else not. The same statement is true for any other category.

    You do not need a DNS server. The local hosts file is sufficient.
