    The domain www.music.youtube.com does not exist, so you don’t need to whitelist it. It is included with music.youtube.com anyway.

    Here are the domains being used by music.youtube.com:

    As you can see, they share at least the domain www.youtube.com with YouTube, and you need to whitelist it, maybe more. So I would not know how to set this up to still block YouTube. You may need to experiment until success. Good luck!

    I may be wrong but I believe youtube music gets content from main youtube domain.

    I'm right now in your situation, I blocked youtube.com on my router only for kids' device.

    Try with blocking youtube.com and the other domains in the original message, and with whitelisting music.youtube.com, s.ytimg.com and www.youtube.com.

    Same boat, this worked for me ...

    Block: youtube.com

    Whitelist: googlevideo.com, accounts.youtube.com, music.youtube.com

    (I'm using NextDNS, so YMMV)
