Videocache is no longer in development.

error occurred please try again later’

by cyberia on 12 May 2010

The first time I access a video on youtube it opens normally and it’s being cached on the videocache server.

But if I tried to access it another time I am getting a black screen with the following error ‘error occurred please try again later’

Note that I changed cache_host field to my server IP then update videocache & restart apache + squid but the problem persists.

This sounds like a problem with your apache server. Videocache should be accessible via web.

Checklist :

  1. You have SELinux disabled because thats the first thing that prevents apache from working correctly.
  2. Your firewall rules are not preventing access to port 80 on your proxy server.
  3. Apache has at least read access to the specified cache_dir directory on the filesystem.

Thank You!

I have the same problem but this time all of my directory settings are correct.

My installation was fresh from the start using v1.9.6-1 RPM.

From the videocache.log I have a CACHE_HIT saying that the video I am trying to view is already in the cache.

2010-11-07 11:30:27,395 13041 kv-l7YHbafY CACHE_HIT YOUTUBE Video was served from cache.

Am I missing something here?

Your cache_host option is not set correctly in your videocache.conf. Please set it to your private IP or public IP. But don't set it to Then restart Squid.

Thank you!
