Hello !!

one more suggestion:

add support for something like:

total_cache = 20000

to limit total of ALL videocache dir !!

and other option to EXPIRE videos that are very old and not 'HIT' for long time (option can be per video-site)

These are few things that I need to sit back and work out. I am going on vacation. I'll see to it once I return.

Thanks for the wonderful suggestion :)

I just installed videocache and think it's great. I also think that being able to limit the total cache is a great idea and really necessary unless there is someone to purge these files after awhile. Is there a way to get rid of these videos after awhile. I'm concerned that this is going to fill my hard drive because my kids like watching videos online. Thank you for a great program.

We already have a solution in the latest code on repository. A cleanup method will be available in next version which is scheduled to be released this week.

Thank you for using videocache :)
