Anon,

Can you please describe your problem in details? What website you were browsing when this happened? Can you give us the link to video you were browsing when this happened?

Thank You!

I guess that he means that after a video is cached, the start/begin features of youtube won't work, as youtube is using them as a get_video script parameters, instead of utilizing the standard Content-Range header. When the video is cached, videocache will redirect the client straight to the file at the Apache server.

Imriz,

Seeking in youtube videos works fine in my setup.

Thank You!

Seeking before the video is loaded? (i.e. jump into an area of the movie that wasn't downloaded yet by the client)

Hi

now my tube8 videos works seek bar !!! huahuahuah

please... change the ext. of youtube to flv again to work seek bar !!!

tks

i use lighttpd and mod mod_flv_streaming

works fine !!!

Thunder,

Its not possible to change the extension to .flv as it limits the functionality of videocache to cache just the flv files.

Congrats for the setup. You can modify your videocache to make it work.

Thank You!

Imriz,

Well, thats not possible :) I'll never try to do that :D

Thank You!

This is possible. This are what the start/begin arguments for.

Try that on a non-cached, non-proxied youtube connection.

Imriz,

I see. I wasn't aware of that as my connection is always proxied :)

Thanks for the clarification.
