If you're a student using CodeHS, you may sometimes encounter blocked YouTube videos or other embedded media. This can be frustrating, but there are options for accessing the information you need. Here are some tips for what to do when you encounter a blocked video or other media:

For Lesson Videos

If a lesson video is blocked, you can watch the CodeHS-hosted version of the video instead. This version will have the same content as the YouTube version, but it will be hosted on CodeHS's website instead. Additionally, you can view the slides for the lesson, which will have all of the information that the video goes over.

For Other Assignment Types

Most embedded videos on CodeHS have alternative versions listed. If you encounter a blocked video, navigate to the alternative website or video link that is listed.

Use a Non-School Network

If possible, you can also try watching the video on a non-school network, such as your home network. However, be sure to follow your school's policies and guidelines for technology use.

Ask Your Teacher

If you're still having trouble accessing the information you need, it's always a good idea to reach out to your teacher. They may have additional links or resources that can help you.

Still have questions about accessing CodeHS content? Ask your teacher!
