How to block facebook videos

Many of users are spending much more time to find the friends secrets and updates by searching something  published in Facebook from their side.  FB is operating transparent mode which would help to identify any changes made  by the user profile to be updated/shown in public/friends network automatically by default.  85% ppls doesn’t aware about how many ppls are seeing their updates sometimes that she/he won’t like to share with them.

In office premise like us as in Software development, We can’t ban this domain since many of the web application using facebook login to register an account and has been used many FB api for showing FB updates in their platform. So it’s a platform for all web application.  This time I’m worry about the bandwidth they used when many of users are actively watching videos.

So I plan to block the channel of FaceBook where they used to stream their videos. You may block the following domains to stop video streaming in your LAN and list might need to update if they added another domain.
1. video.ak.fbcdn.net
2. video.l3.fbcdn.net

Enjoy!!! 🙂
