    NO because they cant control your ipod and put it so you cant use youtube....

    They can only control the computers,laptops,etc that they own...

    well they use a server wide blocking program which applies to all internet devices, even student laptops, however i don't know if the youtube app is connecting to an actual website or to a private server that hosts the youtube videos becuase i believe BESS (the program) only blocks URLs.
    if anyone has tried this with success let me know =D

    It will depend on your school, just try it out yourself.

    Not true. It doesn't matter what device is being used. They can just block youtube.com and no device will be able to access it without using a workaround like proxies.

    I'm not sure what address Touch/iPhone youtube videos are at either though

    That would all depend on whether or not the school has blocked youtube from being accessed by the school computers or not. It may work if they have just blocked the regular youtube site and the iPod touch uses a different address for youtube specifically designed for the touch and then there's a chance that it might not be blocked. But chances are they have http://www.youtube.com/* blocked so any address of youtube would be blocked as well. Unless you can get a proxy working on your iPod Touch you're probably SOL if it's blocked from regular computers.

    I tried today actually and sadly it did not work as my school has a filtering system.
