Last time it tested, it worked fine for redtube. Can you please specify an example url to a video for which its not working?

Thank You!

I moved from Debian Lenny to Centos 5.3 and works good now.

Thank you.

I'm using videocache on CentOS 5.3 but I'm still getting DOWNLOAD_ERR messages on every Redtube request. Youtube is caching OK for the most part. Occasional DOWNLOAD_ERRs on youtube requests.

I tried tcpdumping the traffic to see why Redtube was failing but I never could see traffic from the videocache request. Just the initial user request. So I'm not sure videocache is even trying to download the video.

How can I debug this further?

The following may be the reasons,

  1. Connection Timeout in case max_parallel_downloads option is set very high.
  2. Videocache not able to understand redtube URLs (they may have changed the pattern).
  3. In sufficient disk space.

Please check!
