Hi bruno,

Can you give more information about this problem? Follow the log file and get the exactly moment when error occur. I have a poor performance and can have relation with this bug. In my case, the youtube_cache not download some links. He schedule for download but can't get a flv, return this message: DOWNLOAD_ERR YOUTUBE An error occured while retrieving the video.

Hi bruno!

Please check the answer to first question in errors section on faqs page. That should solve your problem.

See the cache_host reference as well.

good morning

lopan in the log files the first time that he spends the movie, the
the second time that I watch the movie and it opens the log, stores the video
All right, when I load the video again opens the log ee
again in a new video but not loads is stopped with the phrase

Admin will see the section if it persists errro the report again if it
a report also required

Admin to this situation the following



cache_host put in the ip of eth1 or eth0?


by Kulbir Saini on 7 Nov 2008

Put cache_host= . That is your internal IP and only you and people on your local are network will be able to access the videos served by youtube cache.

by bruno on 7 Nov 2008

Admin is exactly this that put ip and not sure I am going to redo the system and see what happens

by Kulbir Saini on 7 Nov 2008

Ok. Start afresh and follow the instructions for install from source and in case something fails just report back :)


by bruno on 7 Nov 2008

necessary to change the address of rcp_host? for my ip address, or change the pattern loopback

Still not satisfied the cache on youtube me of the same sentence

by bruno on 7 Nov 2008

details my apache server only this did not start any kind of setting it. As for the log of youtube_cache it shows access to the site shows that the page was stored, but in time to pass the video he will not start the cache

by bruno on 7 Nov 2008

when I try to pass the video shows him that sentence for min and in the log file shows he NEW_URL

by Kulbir Saini on 7 Nov 2008

No need. Keep the rpc_host= . It'll work fine with default settings.

what I find most funny is the cache in redtue running smoothly and on youtube which is the best known of it MESSAGEN

by Kulbir Saini on 7 Nov 2008

I am sorry but I couldn't understand what you are trying to say in this comment :(

by Kulbir Saini on 7 Nov 2008

Can you please upload your youtube_cache.log file somewhere?

by Kulbir Saini on 7 Nov 2008

Thats indeed funny. May be something wrong with your installation. Or just a problem with the directory permission in /var/spool/squid/video_cache.

by bruno on 7 Nov 2008
