Videocache is no longer in development.


by Anonymous on 18 Feb 2009


I have a new Ubuntu install using iptable and transparent proxy

I have videocache installed but I keep seeing DOWNLOAD_ERR in the logs.

I checked and i do not see port 9100 responding on the server on tcp or udp

My iptables rule is the following

/sbin/iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128

Is there anything I should be adding to get the downloads to work?

Follow these steps,

  1. Check if /var/spool/videocache and its sub-directories have proper ownership and permissions. The ownership should be squid:squid and permissions should be 755.
  2. Check if you have acls in squid which allow your proxy to access internet via itself. In short, add acl to your squid.conf to allow http_access for your proxy IP and .
  3. Check disk space.

If the problem persists, reply back with your /etc/videocache.conf file.

Thank you for using videocache :)
