Hi Anon,

Please make sure that you have your security setting set so that port 9100 is allowed. If that also doesn't fix your problem, then try restarting squid after killing videocache processes.

Thank you for using videocache :)

Hi Anon,

Can you please cross check your videocache.conf options especially the proxy, cache_host, rpc_host, rpc_port with instructions on configure page.

If the problem still persists, please reply here.

Thank You!
