every one anon do you check the httpd server or apache is runing by http://server.ip/videocache if it is ok then plz. set the log file size to 50 Mb and run update-vc then restart the server i hope it will work fine in some case you check if you did manual partition may be the size of var is less not to support the logfile entrise after while when there is more loging space. also need to check the permisions to videocache log directory or file as you need to match as your squid user, 2nd possablity you must remove any previous youtube entry for regxp or refresh related to dst domain youtube etc. and remove cgi related entrise simplely you do just to configure cache partion then allow your local net and past the full videocache lines provided by videocache for squid thank you have nice day and fun Good Bye.
