Cause

Currently, the YouTube URL algorithm contains a unique video ID (for example: tTwddwEceIg) to retrieve videos. This allows Cloud policy to identify and configure that particular video to be allowed.

NOTE: The steps described in this article were tested at the publishing time of this article. YouTube might change its video algorithms at any time.
