The teenager, who has interim name suppression, entered his plea in the Thames District Court this afternoon.
The Chief Censor has classified the footage and a publication reportedly written by the man accused of the shootings as objectionable.
Knowingly possessing or sharing objectionable material carries a prison term of up to 14 years.
The 17-year-old was remanded on bail for sentencing at the end of next month.
