Hello everyone

sorry if it's a stupid question but I'm a newbie of SQUID and PROXIES as

I have SQUID installed on UBUNTU, working fine, only authorized users can
use the proxy.

Some users are watching youtube videos (I can see from the log files); our
rules are pretty simple and basic, youtube videos are allowed but only if
they are for working related purposes.
IN order to understand that I need to check from access.log which kind of
video they watch (we do this randomly, not for every video, for obvious

The problem is that on Squid log file (ACCESS.LOG) the URL I see is similar
to this:


...which is not telling me anything about the content of the youtube video
(it does not work at all...).

Do you have any suggestion on how to understand the content of the video
starting from that URL? Or any suggestion on how to achieve my goal?
