where does the videos are saved

by Anonymous on 29 Jan 2012

hi admin

please i have some question can you explain it to me,
first: does maximum_object_size value effect the cached video
EXAMPLE: my maximum_object_size value is 4 MB if the video is bigger than 4 MB does this video saved to the cache_dir?

second: we define directive in videocache.conf base_dir i assume video will be saved in this directory but when i check the file size it's 8 MB for 136 cached video, are the videos saved in cache_dir and this directory is only pointer for it in cache_dir?

thank you very much sir with my best regards

Squid's maximum_object_size doesn't affect videocache in any possible way. The videos are saved in the directory mentioned using base_dir only. Please let me know if you have any other queries.

Thank You!

please is that mean if the maximum_object_size is 5 MB, i can save videos that sized 10 MB or bigger than 5 MB,

and the video cache directory are saved in cache directory using base_dir

thank you with me best regards

Yes, indeed. Please check base_dir for the saved videos.
