How do I block YouTube on my VMG3925-B10C router?

I tried setting up a profile on PCP but it didn't work.

    Can you share your PCP profile? It will be easy to clarify the problem by checking the profile you created.
    Since youtube uses https protocol, you can't use PCP to block https connection.
    You can find the description in the user guide.(Page 250-251)

    Thanks for your quick reply, please see attached.

    If PCP can't be used for this, is there an alternative way?

    Thanks,
    Daniel.

    @DanielH,
    As I know, PCP can't block https connections and Youtube uses https now.
    The only way I know is to find out the IP address of youtube and create a rule in Firewall. Put the IP address in the Source Field and block it. However, if the IP is changed, you will need to create another new rule to block it.
