The procedure for unblocking YouTube videos has changed. In past years, when you needed to have YouTube videos unblocked, you'd visit the staff tab on the FTS homepage. From now on, you'll visit mwestech.com and click on the link to the right (I attached a picture that shows exactly where you'll find this) to make the request. It is your responsibility to view the entire video to make sure that it is appropriate. You never know what someone has uploaded toYouTube, so it's always a good idea to watch the video from beginning to end. If you have any questions, please let me know and I'd be happy to help.
