Videocache 1.9.2

Cache Videos Using Squid
The Videocache project is a Squid URL rewriter plugin written in Python for bandwidth optimization while browsing famous video sharing portals/websites like Youtube, Metacafe etc. It helps you save bandwidth when a particular video is requested more than once from the same network/machine.

Squid can not cache the videos served dynamically. Videocache fits into squid to help it cache the videos as well. The cached videos are stored on your server's local hard disk and you can browse them as if you downloaded them. You can copy them to other machines as well.

Videocache currently supports the caching of dynamically served videos from the following websites

1. Youtube Videos - youtube.com and all country specific sub-domains like in.youtube.com. This includes the youtube videos served from Google (googlevideo.com) servers.
2. Metacafe Videos - metacafe.com
3. DailyMotion Videos - dailymotion.com
4. Google Videos - video.google.com
5. Vimeo HD Videos - vimeo.com
6. Wrzuta Audio - wrzuta.pl (not videos)
7. MSN Soapbox Videos - soapbox.msn.com
8. Blip TV Videos (Including High Quality) - blip.tv
9. Break Videos (Including High Quality) - break.com
10. TV UOL (Brazil) - tvuol.uol.com.br
11. Red Tube Videos
12. X Tube Videos
13. You Pron Videos
14. Tube8 Videos
