First of all , intro to what VIDEOCACHE is ?

” Videocache is a Squid URL plugin to cache videos from 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 proxy server’s local storage or on a storage server in your network. These cached videos can be served to your clients at a very fast speed saving your upstream bandwidth. “

Following are some working configuration samples for VIDEOCACHE with SQUID on UBUNTU. Installation of VC is fairly simple as mentioned here step by step

http://cachevideos.com/documentation/

I am not showing howto install VIDEOCACHE plugin as its very simple and briefly described at the author site, I am only posting the working configuration files. Also note that videocache is a paid plugin, which costs around 400$ per year.

If you are looking for something free, you may try the following NIGNX method.

Also I would like to share that for VIDEOCACHE plugin, you *MUST* have some good hardware with *LOTS OF* memory and STORAGE. Just for an idea, I deployed it at a network of 300 Users which had Dual CPU with multi cores server for proxy  , 128GB RAM, and 24 TB of external HP Storage, CPU was not much utilized, but at full peak time, the memory usage was around 95%, and the storage usage was around 180 GB in just 1 day.

Also you should have some good amount of bandwidth, otherwise videocache will become bottleneck for your network 🙂 , OR schedule VIDEOCACHE to cache only in specific timings, its supported in /etc/videocache.conf

Following is an working Squid 2.7 on Ubuntu Server 10.4 with videocache support. Please modify necessary directives before using , for example cache_mem, hostname, ACL, Ip’s. Also make sure the CACHE_DIR have been changed to match your local directory structure with proper permissions assgined to user proxy or squid , depend on he nix flavor you are using

#   1 : (disabled) Don't check for YouTube video formats. Cache one of the formats
#       and serve it for requests for all kinds of formats.
#   2 : (strict) Strictly check for YouTube formats and cache all formats separately.
#       Consumes maximum bandwidth.
#   3 : (approximate) Check YouTube formats but with approximation. For example,

#       format of the same video in cache, then serve 360p format and vice-versa.

  1. Thank you Syed, I will try it today. I belive that the big problem is to configure well mikrotik router for full use of proxy. (that’s my problem !)

    Comment by Ivan — August 13, 2013 @ 11:16 AM

    • Its not the problem, You need to configure the mikrotik and squid zph

      Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — August 14, 2013 @ 6:33 PM

      • My noc is configured like your virtualization.
        cisco router (fiber company)—> (wan public ip ) RB1100AHx2 —> (lan noc ip 10.1.1.0/24 ) (radius manager ecc.) —-> backbone OSPF based- and client with any different subnet any tower
        | |–> (local lan 192.168.1.0/24)) office lan
        |–> (proxy lan 172.16.1.0/30) — > proxy server

        I want a parallel proxy with only one interface and I had to log any connection.

        Any time I make a mod on routerboard, somethings happen and nobody can use internet, how configure miktorik with this configuration?

        Thanks
        Ivan

      • you can use squid with single nic. its common. just plug the squid in mikrotik separate interface
        on squid server, create a route pointing to Mikrotik. this way squid will gets its data from the mikrotik, also it will get all the subnet info from the mikrotik too.

  3. need to download video cache 2.3 ?

    Comment by nawal — August 14, 2013 @ 1:03 AM

    • ??

      Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — August 14, 2013 @ 6:34 PM

      • i confuse at install videocache ,” Untar the VideoCache software bundle you received in your email “

        Comment by nawal — August 15, 2013 @ 12:16 AM

      • videocache is not available for download from there website.
        you have to request them for the trial or licensed version. Once you receive it, copy it your squid box, and unrar it in any folder and run its install script as mentioned in the guide.

        Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — August 15, 2013 @ 8:36 AM

      • i just confuse at your post ” After videocache is installed, following is the fine tunned config file. Don’t forget to change the host ip (192.168.100.1) to match your own server ip ” so as you know we need to buy videocache version first to get the installer to install

        Comment by nawal — August 16, 2013 @ 5:02 PM

      • It is pre understood that you must have this software before installation. You can also get its trial version from the author.

        Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — August 16, 2013 @ 5:03 PM

      • i got cachevideos 2.3 trial version, so if im using your squid.conf and videocache.conf it will convert to unlimited version ?

        Comment by nawal — August 24, 2013 @ 2:49 PM

      • I have posted only configuration files, they do work fine.
        but licensing is something else, you have to consult your videocache guy for it.

        Also there is another free method to do the caching of youtube

        Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — August 26, 2013 @ 9:20 AM

  4. Syed, what is the difference between Videocache or https://aacable.wordpress.com/?s=squid+nginx. Squid+nginx is working for me. The good thing like you said is the perfomance that need the server and the line, because is can become a bottleneck

    Comment by Rafael — August 14, 2013 @ 8:14 PM

    • Videocache is an advance plugin for squid, it supports caching of many video websites with good stats / logging/ cleaner and some other features. read there web site for full list of supported web sites and its features.

      Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — August 15, 2013 @ 8:35 AM

  7. Can you give out your full hardware configuration with its model and also 24 TB of external HP Storage model and its cost.

    Comment by tubeguy — September 2, 2013 @ 11:29 AM

    • I dont remember exactly, but it was XEON dual processors with 16 cores / 128 GB RAM / HP External Storage, I dont remember the exact model but it had 24 Hard Drives of 1 TB each in RAID0 mode. later on it was converted to Raid10, so 12 TB was used.

        Squid Cache (Version 3.1.19): Terminated abnormally.

        Comment by using you script following error is coming zabib bahi. — September 7, 2013 @ 6:46 PM

  8. hi,
    i’m using 2 squid box,
    the first one as videocache and the other as normal squid.

    my topology network just like this,
    mikrotik —- squid1
    —— videocache

    can squid1 bypass bandwidth from videocache as the parent squid?

    and how can i set the qos rule for these?

    thx

    Comment by Synard Zoldic — September 19, 2013 @ 11:12 AM

  9. i have the last version and cracked and test 100% if you needed i can send it to you
    the problem of this script is that i eat the whole bandwidth you have
    so in my opinion it didnt save bandwidth, it consume the whole bandwidth !!
    tell me bro, squid3 better than squid2.7 ? i didnt test squid3 yet …
    thank you …

    Comment by Hussein — October 5, 2013 @ 7:06 PM

    • in performance 3.x is far better 🙂
      but unfortunately it donot support storeurl method.

      Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — October 22, 2013 @ 3:27 PM

    • can get it plz

      Comment by dh — December 12, 2013 @ 6:09 PM

      • me 2 please? =) can’t find 2.3 anywhere but I have 2.1 if anyone wants. the problem is 2.1 does not seem to be caching youtube videos anymore. they appear in log but not in cache folder and then the log shows a MISS. The author is bloody mad to ask $400… there are many home users who want to use this and who don’t consider it worth more than $50 never mind $400.. It’s a linux-based package – an extension to SQUID which is 100% free, and it’s coded in python, and yet he’s asking so much??? Crazy. anyways

        Comment by Dimitri Pappas (@fragtion) — December 26, 2013 @ 2:44 PM

      • 2.1 is common in market, but its not caching youtube properly, better to get 2.3

        Also I do agree that 400$ per year is very high price , just for python codes :p
        BTW, have you tried following?
        https://aacable.wordpress.com/2012/01/19/youtube-caching-with-squid-2-7-using-storeurl-pl/

        Its working much better then VC, as this method does not consume double bandwidth for view+download. The only downside is its compatible with 2.7 Only.

        Comment by Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) — December 26, 2013 @ 2:58 PM

    • Hussein plz can u sent it to me?
