YouTube is the primary source of free video content on the Internet . There are over 1 billion unique users visiting, and 6 billion hours of video watched on YouTube every month. There is no question that these videos are watched being watched by employees while they are on the clock at work. For example during January of 2012 the 4800 employees in Plano working for JC Penney had watched 5 million YouTube videos during work hours.

There is no question that these videos waste exorbitant amounts of time at work, hinder productivity in the work place and that YouTube needs to be blocked. A problem with blocking YouTube is that employees may want to watch videos on their lunch, or after hours on company computers. Another issue with blocking YouTube is that all of the embedded videos are in external websites. A majority of the filtering software does not block those embedded videos. There are solutions to these problems.

BrowseControl allows you to block YouTube as a website, as well as block any embedded videos in external websites. It will disable YouTube as a distraction and increase efficiency in the work place.

BrowseControl also allows you to schedule Internet restricting blocking times or Internet accessible times. This can allow an organization block YouTube during working hours only or alternatively block Youtube at all hours and schedule specific times for access.
