Hi Kulbir!

I upgraded to 1.9.3 lastnight and early this morning i noticed that youtube videos are not downloaded and cached. the previous 1.9.3 upgrade last week, youtube videos are downloaded and cached as i can see it on the logs. CACHE_HIT also can be found but not anymore on the latest upgrade i made last night. the previous upgrade, videos are hit but in the middle of video streaming my download meter drops and videos being watched starts to buffer. at fisrt i can see on my browser, lower leftmost corner of my firefox browser the "transfering data from 172.22.0.1 <--my video server ip" then after a while it will get back to youtube.

i was not able to monitor it well last night since it was very late already and i was thinking it was resolved already when you gave me the latest 1.9.3 version.

these are the things i did last night.
1) extracted the tar file u sent me
2) ran "python setup.py install"
3) added the ff line to squid.conf:

Hi Vincent,

Thanks for detailed report. Actually the acls were wrong (my bad). Please use the new acls from installation page and restart squid process. That'll resume youtube caching.

Thank you!
