Hi anon,

Can you please give details about your operating system and other related things like squid version and all?

Please make sure the cache_dir is writable by squid and you have properly configured videocache. Please revisit videocache configure page and verify your configurations.

Thank You!

btw i use :

# cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 8.04.1 \\n \\l

# /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid -v
Squid Cache: Version 2.7.STABLE4
configure options:  '--enable-gnuregex' '--enable-async-io=24' '--with-aufs-threads=24' '--with-pthreads' '--prefix=/usr/local/squid' '--with-aio' '--with-dl' '--enable-storeio=aufs' '--enable-removal-policies=heap' '--enable-icmp' '--disable-delay-pools' '--disable-wccp' '--disable-snmp' '--enable-cache-digests' '--enable-default-err-langauges=English' '--enable-err-languages=English' '--enable-linux-netfilter' '--disable-ident-lookups' '--disable-hostname-checks' '--enable-underscores'

I think you didn't follow the configuration tutorial properly. Because videocache doesn't seem to detect any urls for youtube. Please ensure that you followed the required steps on configure page.

Also can you please post your squid.conf and videocache.conf files on http://pastebin.com ?

Thank You!

Anon,

You squid and videocache are not interacting properly. Videocache is not getting any request from squid. Please paste your squid.conf file.

Thank You!

dear admin,

i mean that some page cannot be cached from youtube,
for example this clip : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XZklKaQhi8&

i did good in my config videocache as some video from youtube could be cached, here is my directory :

root@proxy:/video/youtube# ls
05f5cf7df5046e40  4e3fcd966d3cef51  7lCd9mY1kIc       e2bdaf5d9d4c98a5
0e57b5b3ddcef1a3  5YjfGex5JHY       8988e3c0a21d09eb  e8babe88d1a43f63
135f7741dc3472dd  6010208e932a110a  8c8d41bf6191b371  ed01252bc07a14e1
23d0ddc811f11974  612b3fd01a46d02f  9e821fc28e01e243  ef640a889fe8c3c4
256de2da880cec02  626f9b4ef2e7c873  b1699baef79bb865  f629129228500e63
25f9a40d77517c31  648c3e0ad01d9e8e  b5e4rmnMozU       fe312e8c43177f6e

and of course the log give the logging if it page able to get by cachevideos,
but if i access this page "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XZklKaQhi8&"
the cachevideos could not be able to cache.
