Links to Videos Not Working

If you have one of our Assembly downloads and the links to videos don’t seem to be working, this is almost certainly caused by you not having access to YouTube from the computer you are using.

Check this by trying to access YouTube directly.

If you cannot access YouTube from your computer this is normally because your Network Manager has blocked access. Often access to YouTube is blocked for students, and when you log in to the computer as a member of staff, YouTube becomes accessible.

If YouTube is blocked on your computer, the best way forward is to ask your Network Manager to give you access. This is quite straightforward but may take more than a few minutes. So always check access is working before an important presentation.


If your school has a policy of blocking YouTube for everyone, the only way to show YouTube videos is to download them. AssemblyTube Club Members can download software to do this.
