1.9.6-1 (VIDEO_EXISTS YOUTUBE Video already exists)

by Anonymous on 23 Sep 2010

Dear Admin;
I have upgraded to the latest release 1.9.6-1 successfully and the cache-video works fine.The thing i came across is the message that keeps show up in the videocache.log everytime there is a hit where the clip is downloaded from the cache server.

As you can see above,the clip first scheduled for caching,,then cached,,and then hits but i keep getting "Video already exists". I am wondering why this keeps showing up? is it normal.

This happens with clips i try to download from the youtube.

Other configuration are normal one as i am being using the videocache for quite long so far

Please advise

Hi!

This is normal. Videocache just checks if there is an alternate video_id youtube is using to serve the current video. It doesn't fetch any extra video, so nothing to worry about :)

Thank You!
