I want to block all of the sites/web pages (including youtube videos) that show 'Full House' videos. Is that possible?

If I didn't want to go to Full House, I wouldn't just go to it, but my younger sister (half my age) is re-watching it for like the 3rd time and wakes me up at 8AM when she gets in a fight with my younger brothers over what to watch.

I'm just trying to prevent the fighting overall, and block Full House at all.

I'm not sure of a way to block the type of video being watched. If you have cable and a DVR you could just record the reruns off TV and keep them off your computer all together.

If you do find something, I'm pretty sure Google will trade you your own house for it, and then some. So you wouldn't have to worry about it anymore anyways.

It's a pretty tricky task you're looking to accomplish. :)
The best idea I can come up with is to intercept all outgoing traffic from your computer and rewrite any instances of "full house" with "bull mouse" before they leave the computer.

If you're lucky, she'll think your computers broken and go do something else.

Having grown up with two younger brothers and a younger sister myself, all I can say is the only way you're going to solve this problem, is to somehow get her a computer that's better than yours.

How about setting up a proxy that blocks every page with "Full House" on it?

That sounds like a start.

One of these days, maybe home computers will be fast enough to do facial recognition on streaming video. Then you could just specify an actor, or group of actors, that triggers a block on the rest of the stream.

Is a CGI solution better or a PHP for this thing? Or am I on the wrong track here?

It only blocks the sites that I put a link to... I want something to block a site based on the content of the page. I guess what you provided is the best solution right now, and what I'm asking for is not done yet so I probably need to compromise here.

Thanks

Anyway you try to do it, it's going to be complicated, but here's my thoughts.........

You could write a program that, when executed, will run as third party software to your browser and parse each web page's text(text would be easier), or code that you visit, and if the page contains "full house" it redirects you to a specified page.

simple example of parsing a web page:
www[DOT]ussysadmin[DOT]com/2009/10/parsing-web-pages/

As for the actual program you would use, since I'm more proficient in C++ I'd probably try to write it in Microsoft Visual C++.

www[DOT]microsoft[DOT]com/express/Windows/

Good luck :D

ps
can't post links, so change the [DOT] to an actual period.

Thanks for the links. I was wondering how I would be able to set up a proxy here but nobody wants to answer :(

I mean I have to set up a proxy somewhere on the web, configure it to block site's with Full House on it and then have Firefox use the web through the proxy. I know Firefox can do this because I once had a virus which made my Firefox go through a proxy... all sites were disabled other then some Anti-Spyware site (The virus' site).
