This is what i am getting in videocache.log

Anon,

Checklist

  1. Is port 9100 open and not blocked by iptables? Use 'netstat -atpn' to see.
  2. Did you modify the setup script while installing videocache?

Thank You!

Hi,

Yes i did modify the script before installing it.

I changed the "squid_user" and "squid_group" and "apache_dir" parameters. Still same issues.

I tried to install this on ubuntu with the guide that was on the frontpage, still its not working.

Hi,

When you say port 9100 open or blocked. Should it be open for Client Access, or for Server Access to Internet.

Mudasir,

Port 9100 is used for XMLRPC communication within the server only. You get SCHEDULE_ERR when either scheduler is not working properly or it have received something it was not expecting. Can you paste the output of 'netstat -atpn' here?

Thank You!

I have the same error SCHEDULED_ERR - Could not schedule video for download.

I used Fedora 11: result of my commands:

Did anyone get any further with a solution for this problem? I've now tried videocache installs on two PC's, and got this error with both of them. One was running OpenSUSE 11.1 and Squid 2.7, and the other was Fedora 11 with Squid 3. The error logged was the same each time.

Also, I notice VC only identified and tried to download about 1 in 4 youtube videos.

Thanks.
