Videocache is no longer in development.

VideoCache + WebFilter (Websense)

by adubb on 4 Feb 2009

We currently have a web filter using url_rewrite to run in the squid.conf . Is it possible to run 2 url_rewrite setups in one conf file? It seems to crash our filter when we use both, But either or will work if used alone

Anyone experience or successfully attempt this?

Read "Install with SquidGuard + AdZapper + FreeBSD" at VIDEOCACHE HACKS section.

It is similar to your case. Many redirectors for squid ...

Thanks Josep for helping out on forums :)

We currently are using ""

The problem is this executes our WebFilter, however when it tries to load the VideoCache Python script, it fails

/downloads/ unexpected EOF from [/usr/bin/python /usr/share/videocache/] at /downloads/ line 62.

Any Ideas?

Did you try to use only videocache as squid redirector?

Video cache works okay on its own (No Redirector)

With this script, Alone, it doesn't work with the redirector.

Our Filter, however,does work with the redirector.

It spits out that error I posted

Its strange :(

I'm sorry. I don't understand you answer.

Did you try squid with videocache? Without zapchain (and without WebSense)?

Only videocache (as redirector) at url_rewrite_program tag.

i found the same problem with bannerfilter+videocache+zapchain.

so i stick in version 1.6 without any problem. Still waiting for the next version release

I think its not a problem with videocache as other users are using it successfully without any problems.

Thank You!
