Daily Motion Video Caching Issue

by mujahidh on 17 Dec 2011

Videocache seems ho be having an issue caching daily motion videos , it manages to determins the video url for about 20% of the videos , the rest it gives errors.

Pasting lines from videocache.log and scheduler.log to help debug issue

From videocache.log

As can be seen there is no corresponding entry in the scheduler log for the video. Is the scheduler silently dropping it ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Mujahidh,

I tested the urls you have mentioned on a local installation and everything seems to be working perfectly. Can you please pass on the corresponding trace.log messages so that I can get a clearer idea?

Thank You!
