Youtube app Not working on my pfsense



  • Good day,

    Im Using Pfsense 2.1.5 running on virtualbox as a server for a Captive portal
    My ISP is Converge ICT with 100mbps download and 100mbps Upload
    with 2NICS Tplink PCie Gigabit lancard and a USB 3.0 gigabit lan

    When Cellphones are connected like android or ios everything is ok (FB, Games, Chrome) except the youtube app the app is loading and loading and loading only and not playing the videos. but when i play youtube in google chrome browser its working.

    what is the posible problem and solution on my pfsense ?



  • Your phones and devices are to recent.
    Downgrade them all, to reach a situation that they do work with your pfSense portal.
    Use old browser software.
    Ditch Chrome : it didn't exists back then.

    Btw : when your client/user is authenticated, the portal becomes 100 % transparent. No rules neither restrictions, except your GUI firewall rules.

    Yup I would concur - I mean if your going to be using firewall from 2014, your devices should be from that era as well ;)
