Another way to solve DOWNLOAD_ERR YOUTUBE An error occured while retrieving the video

by zinhell on 28 Feb 2009

Hi all,

I found another way to solve this error message problem "DOWNLOAD_ERR YOUTUBE An error occured while retrieving the video"

My problem solved in videocache 1.9. After i change cache_host and proxy in /etc/videocache.conf file to use my proxy interface next in squid.conf we must add access list to allow ip address 10.0.99.2

and my problem solved

example :

in /etc/videocache.conf

cache_host 10.0.99.2
proxy http://10.0.99.2:3128/

in /usr/local/squid/etc/squid.conf

acl LAN_1 src 10.0.99.2/255.255.255.255
http_access allow LAN_1

Regards,
May this help us

Hello!

This is correct. videocache downloading for caching the video needs squid access:

DOWNLOAD_ERR YOUTUBE appears also if videocache tries to download an expired 'temporary' video from googlevideo.com and related:

While getting this in videocache.log :

2009-09-08 12:13:40,415 7593 202.95.136.53 f74ecb4881f220a9 CACHE_HIT YOUTUBE Video was served from cache.

The video is not playing :
An error occurred, please try again later.

I'm able to browse http:///videocache/
Already put http_access allow localip_acl too.
Any solution?

I have the same problem.

In logs show : DOWNLOAD_ERR YOUTUBE An error occured while retrieving the video

If i try another site it works ! ( DOWNLOAD TVUOL 10099594 Video was downloaded and cached )

I bought the version 1.9.2 and got the same error.
