We are also had this problem (but with hivemanager NG). We have created a ticket for this and an the moment they have given a high priority to this issue. I don't know if they are investigating it for hmol6

as a workaround you can block it somewhere further in the network on some router or firewall. Probably it will not be solved in older versions of HM while they are not investing efforts anymore there.

I think it will be a must for a company like Aerohive to fix this in Hmol6 and in Hivemanager NG.

We opened a ticket as well but as for now this is not fixable.

we have HM 6.8 on premises and look like this version is buggy , downgraded all access point to firmware 6.5r4 with application signature 5.0.4 - all works perfect. My lesson is DO NOT UPGRADE if there is no new feature needed in new update. New updates only break good configuration. Also in 6.8 we had issues with Radius. So I am staying with golden release of 6.5 and ignoring blinking bees about upgrade.

Does not appear to work with an AP on HiveOS 6.5r8b or 8.3r2. On an iOS 11.2.6 device using the YouTube app, the thumbnails are blocked but you can still play the videos. There was another post that suggested blocking google videos, but that doesn't help https://community.aerohive.com/aerohive/topics/blocking_application_service_youtube
Safari does not load the web page. Other Apps like Instagram and Facebook also don't appear to be blocked by the firewall either...
