VideoCache

Configuring VideoCache

VideoCache plugin and other components like vc-scheduler are managed by a single configuration file located at /etc/videocache.conf. The configuration file contains extensive documentation in form of inline comments. To customize VideoCache according to your environment, please go through the comments for the options you wish to set/modify and assign appropriate values.

The important options you may want to take a look at are client_email, cache_host, base_dir, max_cache_processes, max_cache_speed, disk_cleanup_strategy etc. Once you are done making changes, save the file and run the VideoCache update command vc-update as shown below
