Retention Time and Specific Videos Caching

by regex_1 on 19 Jun 2012

I have specific videos from my channel on youtube that I would like to cache forever. Can I set that somewhere. Maybe a specific line for each video or something.

Also how long does videocache hold videos and why does it seem to load only a quarter of the video when you click on one then slowly load the rest?

Also, is there a script that anyone knows of or some other way to crawl certain websites over night so they are cached. Like go and load the top 100 videos on youtube or something like that.

Currently videocache doesn't have a feature to whitelist certain videos which should be kept forever. Videocache removes videos only when your disk gets almost full and removes videos which are not least recently used.

Also, I am not really sure if there is any script to crawl websites overnight to cache top videos. Let us know if you have any other queries.

Thank You!
